Admit the whole of Mahomet's authentic history, so far as it was of a nature capable of being known or witnessed by others, to be true (which is certainly to admit all that the reception of the religion can be brought to prove), and Mahomet might still be an impostor, or enthusiast, or a union of both. Many of these issues can be considered in relation to Carlyle's description of what he sees as prevailing opinions of Mahomet: Our current hypothesis about Mahomet, that he was a scheming Impostor, a Falsehood incarnate, that his religion is a mere mass of quackery and fatuity, begins really to be now untenable to any one.

Aug 31,  · From the outset, Mahomet desires his slave girl Palmira, the only woman in the play. In the last scenes she attacks Mahomet as an impostor, bloody savage, seducer and tyrant." In a letter to Frederick, dated January 20, , Voltaire announced that he was sending him a printed copy of the play Mahomet. Voltaire spoke of the plot of the play:Author: Adrian Morgan. Persecutions from the Early Part of the Eighth, to Near the Conclusion of the Tenth Century Boniface, archbishop of Mentz, and father of the German church, was an Englishman, and is, in ecclasiastical history, looked upon as one of the brightest ornaments of this nation.

But God permitted an enemy to arise, who not only arrested the progress of Romanism on all sides, but more than once made the pontiff himself tremble for his safety even in the chair of St. Peter. This was Mahomet, the impostor of Arabia. While many continued to portray Muhammad as heresiarch, a false prophet, and an impostor, it is often to contrast him with deviant Christians, who are cast as worse. In an almanac published in Paris in , we find an image of “the impostor Mahomet” in hell alongside the “seducer Calvin” (fig. 11).
