    During the Crusades, Saint Francis of Assisi risked his life by walking across enemy lines to meet the Sultan of Egypt, the Muslim ruler Al-Malik al-Kamil. This remarkable encounter, and the commitment to peace of the two men behind it, sucked the venom out of the Crusades and changed the relationship between Muslims and Christians for the better.
    Join us for this premiere in San Jose to learn about the remarkable spiritual exchange between the Sultan and the Saint, and the great risks they took for peace.
