In September, 1219, Francis of Assisi went to Egpyt to preach to Sultan al-Malik al-Kamil. John Tolan examines the varying depictions of this brief but highly significant meeting and how they reveal the changing fears and hopes that Muslim-Christian encounters have inspired in European artists and writers in the centuries since.
