The journey of Scattolin, a member of the Comboni Missionaries, into Islamic studies began in the Lebanon and moved through the Sudan to take root in Egypt. Inspiration was drawn from Charles de Foucauld, Serge de Beaurecueil and Vatican II. A specialism in Sufism began at PISAI and was augmented by studying with Gerhard Böwering at Yale and studies in Christian spirituality at Heythrop College, London. Major critical text editing of the writings of ‘Umar Ibn al-Farid established the author as a recognised authority amongst Egyptian Muslim scholars. The combination of a career teaching at PISAI and at Egyptian universities provided a rootedness in the ecclesiastical world and Muslim culture. The real spiritual Christian-Muslim encounter fostered by imbibing deeply the Sufi texts is held to be a key to go deeper, not only to a global village but to promote a global humanism.
