I have been reading with interest the most recent controversy between the Pope and the Muslim world. I’m sure you’ve heard it already. In his speech, the pope quoted 14th-century Byzantine emperor Manuel II Paleologus who said: “Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.”
