Chapel for Europe

Rue Van maerlant,22-24

Brussels, Belgium, 1040

We are glad to welcome you again to our Movie Night AT THE CHAPEL.

The Sultan and the Saint tells one of the great, lost stories from history. Set in a past period of East-West conflict, it speaks with urgency to our present. Two men of faith, one an itinerant Christian preacher, the other the ruler of a Muslim Empire, bucked a century of war, distrust, and insidious propaganda in a search for mutual respect and common ground.

It is the story of Francis of Assisi and the Sultan of Egypt, and their meeting on a bloody battlefield during the period of Christian-Muslim conflict known as the Crusades. 

This film also brings together 2 events we are organizing this October at the Chapel: an Evening of reflection and exchange: Christianity, Islam: sources of spiritual awakening in Brussels? on Tuesday October 18th and also the Exhibition of Sculptures by Rik Van Schil, O.F.M, Franciscan Father from Flanders.


Moderation: Fr. Patrick Power ofm; from Irish Franciscan parish of Saint Anthony in Kraainem.
