Thomas of Celano’s Vita beati Francisci is the first Franciscan hagiography to recount the 1219 meeting, in Damietta, between the Saint of Assisi and al-Malik al-Ka¯mil. Thomas’s narrative paints a very positive picture of the Sultan’s reception of Francis. This hagiography has no negative judgement to offer of the Sultan, even though the common prejudice regarding the Saracens does come through in other works by the same Author. The Vita beati Francisci tells of comparable hospitality extended to Francis at the Papal Court, then in the city of Rieti. Indeed, in the narrative penned by Thomas of Celano the true protagonist of the event is the Sultan, whose hospitality, frustrating Francis’s wish for martyrdom, gained enduring fame for that historic meeting, which was to be further recounted and interpreted in Franciscan literature, from the thirteenth century to the present day.
