“NATHAN THE WISE” SYNOPSIS

At the heart of the story is the legend of the rings.  A father has a ring of authority.  This ring conveys to the holder both power over the masses and the love of the masses.  The father received the ring from his father and was prepared to pass it on to his son – but he had three sons and loved them each alike.  To which should he give the ring and the power and the authority that went with it?  Distressed by being forced to make a choice among his three sons, the father had two additional rings made, each indistinguishable from the original.  Each son is given a ring, and each son is told that his ring is the true ring.  The father passes, and the three sons each assert authority.  

Which is the real ring?  Which is the true religion?  Who will judge between the sons and who will adjudicate the issue of the true religion?  This is the question that “Nathan the Wise”  seeks to pose to his Christian and Muslim accusers in hopes that the obvious conundrum will make them spare his life and cause them to abandon the certainty that both Saladin (the Islamic sultan) and Heraklios (the Christian patriarch) admit is deadly.
