Francis encounters the Sultan, from Francis of Assisi (1961)

Description

In this scene from the film Francis of Assisi (1961), St Francis of Assisi travels to the East to sue for peace with the Sultan, whose armies are fighting the Christian crusaders in the Holy Land. Francis urges the Sultan's conversion to Christianity and, though the Sultan turns down his offer, he is astounded by Francis' faith and impressed that he would walk through fire to convince the Sultan about the truth of his message.
