This week, we are sharing with you a new episode from our story of Barlaam & Josaphat: the king, Josaphat’s father, realizes that his son has converted and no longer venerates his father’s gods. The king is full of rage and wants to kill his son. The excerpt comes from the Croatian legend Xivot svetoga Giosafata, conserved in Zagreb, in a late manuscript source from the 18th century.
