During the Crusades, a sick King Richard the Lionhearted is visited by Sultan Saladin's personal physician, the Jewish sage Moses Maimonides. A different era's view of Christianity, Islam and Judaism.  This recounting of the tale, one often used to illustrate the peaceful relationship between Islam and Jew, points to a sober lesson: the faith that nourishes and sustains us also drives us to war, and we have still not found a way to have one without the other.
