From Bondage to Freedom: A Tale of the Rise of Mohammedanism - Emma Leslie

The Religious Tract Society, 0, Hardback ..
Condition: Good. A pleasant enough reading copy. Gently bruised at the head, tail and corners of the binding. Shaken, with the hinges exposed at the first blank, again at page 145, and slightly fragile now. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.

From the cover: “THE close of the sixth century A.D., and the beginning of the seventh, marked one of the most momentous epochs in the history of the Christian Church. Rome had fallen beneath the power of barbarian invaders; and the loss of its political greatness was followed by the growing power of its bishops. Pope Gregory I. became the greatest man in the shattered Western empire, although even he refused the title of “Universal Bishop”. This was claimed by John, the Bishop of Constantinople, Patriarch of the East; and the “impious assumption”, as it was then termed, was one ground of controversy between the East and West.
