A CHRISTIAN/MOSLEM DEBATE OF THE 12TH CENTURY


Very happy to reblog this – a debate from the 12th century between Christians and Moslems. Surprisingly, these kind of encounters were not as rare as you might think. And as I’ve blogged before, the Franciscans – at some peril to themselves – often went to the heart of the Islamic world to argue their case. And in at least one case, got martyred for their pains!
