American Philosophical Society
Western Hostility to Islam and Prophecies of Turkish Doom (Memoir 201)
Kenneth M. Setton
The tall tales of medieval pilgrims & the incitements of crusading preachers contributed their share to the hatred of Islam nurtured in most Christian hearts during the middle ages. Ridiculous legends grew up in the West relating to Mohammed, the stock in trade of preachers, who were always willing to inform their listeners about the origin of the Prophet & the nature of Islam. Pious Christians were usually assured that Mohammed had come to a bad end. Contents of this study: early legends & prophecies; Christian hopes for the undoing of Islam; Bartholomaeus Georgievicz & the “Red Apple”; & Translations of the Koran & Increasing Tolerance of Islam. Illus.
