Description

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.
