GSC/CERIS Fall 2015 Book Discussion Saint and the Sultan: The Crusades, Islam, and Francis of Assisi's Mission of Peace
Book discussion for K-16 and librarians
Time:
5:30 pm to 8:00 pm
Presenter:
Robert Matson, Professor of History, University of Pittsburgh Johnstown
Location:
Seton Hill University, Greensburg, PA (Dining Room, Administration Building)
Sponsored by:
Global Studies Center along with Consortium for Educational Resources on Islamic Studies and Seton Hill University

Educators and librarians are invited to attend this book discussion to expand self knowledge and to integrate into curriculum when applicable.

Author Paul Moses captures the lives of St. Francis and Sultan al-Kamil and illuminates the political intrigue and religious fervor of their time. In the process, it reveals a startlingly timely story of interfaith conflict, war, and the search for peace. More than simply a dramatic adventure, though it does not lack for colorful saints and sinners, loyalty and betrayal, and thrilling Crusade narrative, The Saint and the Sultan brings to life an episode of deep relevance for all who seek to find peace between the West and the Islamic world. Winner of the 2010 Catholic Press Association Book Award for History.

Dr. Robert Matson, Professor of History at the University of Pittsburgh Johnstown will facilitate the discussion.
