In the year 1219, Francis of Assisi risked his life by walking across enemy lines to meet the Sultan of Egypt, the Muslim ruler and scholar Sultan 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 began a new relationship between Muslims and Christians for the better.

Join us for the Seton Hill premiere of UPF's latest film, "The Sultan and the Saint."
