For some months I’ve been translating the work that got Pope Benedict into so much trouble a year or two back; Dialogue 7 of the Dialogues with a Learned Moslem by Manuel II Paleologus. It’s been hard going, because I have found the arguments really tedious. I’ve now accepted that I will never manage to do all 37 chapters of this, and have decided to stop, and upload what I have managed to do.
Chapters 1-18 are now online here. The remark quoted by the pope comes early on, and the rest gives quite enough to see the context of the discussion.
