When his astrologers foretell that his son Josaphat will convert to Christianity, the pagan King Avenir confines him to a palace, allowing him to know only the pleasures of the world, and to see no illness, death, or poverty. Despite the king's precautions, the hermit Barlaam comes to Josephat and begins to teach the prince Christian beliefs through parables. Josaphat and being to teach the prince Christian beliefs through parables. Josaphat converts to Christianity, angering his father, who tries to win his son back to his religion before he, too, converts. After his father's death, Josaphat renounces the world and lives as a hermit in the wilderness with his teacher Barlaam. First found in Arabic, the story was Christianized in the eighth century and long attributed to St. John of Damascus. The tale was translated into virtually every European language. Philologists eventually identified the name Josaphat as a derivation from the Sanskrit bodhisattva, the Buddhist term for the future Buddha, a discovery that highlights this text as essential source reading for understanding early connections among the world's most popular religions.--
