In the years 1439-1441 the observant friar Alberto of Sarteano accomplished a dangerous task entrusted to him by Pope Eugenius IV, that of bringing back from Egypt to the Council of Florence a Coptic delegation to negotiate the Union with the Church of Rome. According to a nearly contemporary source (the observant chronicler Mariano of Florence) he also met with the Sultan and took part in a religious dispute with Islamic scholars at his court. Mariano’s story might have a basis of truth, even if it’s hard to state it precisely. In any case, among Alberto’s works there is a letter − that has gone unnoticed so far − in which the Pope proposes to the Sultan to set up an interreligious committee in order to establish the true faith for both Christian and Muslim believers. The paper provides a historical survey of Alberto’s mission and a critical edition of the letter.
