This Fall, the Young Auditorium is sponsoring A Summit of Faith, based on the 13th Century encounter between St. Francis of Assisi and the Sultan of Egypt. The unusual meeting between these men is featured in Paul Moses’ book, The Saint and the Sultan: Crusades, Islam, and Francis of Assisi’s Mission of Peace.
Four enriching events make up the program, which speaks to both the historical event that brought Francis of Assisi and Sultan Malik al-Kamil together in the 13th Century as well as contemporary Christian-Muslim relations.
