Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense, met on Thursday with head of the Anglican church in London.

Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby received the Crown Prince at Lambeth Palace in central London, where the two talked for an hour.

The two men viewed a selection of early texts from the Christian, Muslim and Jewish faiths, including fragments of a Koran manuscript found in a Birmingham University library in 2015, which are thought to be among the world’s oldest.

Prince Mohammed is on a three-day visit to Britain, which began with a lunch with Queen Elizabeth II on Wednesday. He also met with Prince Charles and Prime Minister Theresa May.
