Was it not natural that Christian Europe should con- ceive the idea of doing for their religion what the Mos- lems did for Islam"? and that, following the example of Moslems in their " holy war," Christians should emulate them in the Crusades?
It must not be forgotten also that the Arabs, almost from the first appearance of Muhammedanism, were under the refining and elevat- ing influences of art and sci- ence. While the rest of Eiu-ope was in the midnight of the Dark Ages, the Moorish imi- versities of Spain were the beacon of the revival of learn- ing. The Christian teacher was still manipulating the bones of the saints when the Arab physician was practising surgery.
