The Crusades - Film Dual Set Collection (DVD)
Two film box set – Richard the Lionheart and The Sultan and the Saint.
SULTAN AND THE SAINT
Eight hundred years ago, a simple Christian friar and a mighty Muslim leader met on the bloody battlefield of the Crusades. What happened next changed world history. The Sultan and The Saint tells one of the great, lost stories from history set during the brutal time of the Crusades. Two men of faith, one a Christian preacher, the other the ruler of a Muslim Kingdom, bucked a century of war and distrust in search for peace. It is the true story of Francis of Assisi and the Sultan of Egypt, and their meeting on a bloody battlefield, when one of the largest Crusader armies ever assembled tries to conquer Egypt. This is a multi-award winning, and Emmy nominated film.
RICHARD THE LIONHEART
Starring Steven Waddington as Richard the Lionheart. After a declaration from the Pope to the recapture of the Holy land, Richard takes on the biggest challenge of his life by agreeing to lead a coalition army to win back these sacred lands and take back the city of Jerusalem in the name of God. All of the eyes of the Christian world were upon him, the task is immense, and his adversary Saladin is himself a great leader who controls a huge army vastly outnumbering the Crusaders. This epic struggle between these two great warrior leaders would shape the future of the world forever. 'Exhilarating' Daily Telegraph.
