Example text

Emmaupaxda having accepted this condition, the Persian king sent him many thousands of soldiers, with whose aid he recaptured all his father’s possessions, driving the Parthes from every part of the Mogor kingdom. He was succeeded by him who is the subject of our present inquiry. The name of this king was Echebar, or, as some call it, Achebar, but, as we shall see, he styled himself in his royal letters, Mahumet Zelabdin Echebar [Muhammad Jalalu-d din Akbar], Echebar continued the war which his predecessor had waged against the Parthes (or Patanes, as they are now called in India).

Besides these, there are many others who stay in their kingdoms, and who, in order that they may be exempt from personal service, pay a larger tribute than those who attend at court. Some of these kings are Pagans, and others Mahometans; but Echebar, although he professed, at least outwardly the Mahometan faith, placed more trust in the former than the latter. As to the limits of his empire, these cannot yet be stated with accuracy; for until the time of his death, which took place on the 27th of October, 1605, he was constantly making new conquests.

They admit, and accept as inspired scriptures, the Books of Moses, the Psalms of David, and the Evangels. But these they are expressly forbidden by Mahomet either to possess, or to read. 6 The Fathers were, therefore, able to convict them out of their own mouths. For if, said they, your Koran is an inspired book, there ought to be no antagonism between it and the Books of Moses, the Psalms of David, and the Evangels, which you admit to be inspired; for if there is antagonism, it is certain that one or the other must be false.
