FROM THE AUTHOR OF BEN-HUR, A TALE OF FAITH AND THE EAST

It was not his first visit to Mecca. But the purpose in mind gave the journey a new zest; and nothing in the least indicative of the prevalent spirit of the Hajj escaped him. Hundreds of years ago he smote Christ on his way to the Cross -- and for that act he was blessed and pained to wait and meet His second coming, wandering through the centuries undying and drawn thin and weary. Fifty years ago, disgusted with the endless strife between Islam and Christianity, he went to Japan to be shut of it. There, in a repentant hour, he had conceived the idea of a Universal Religious Brotherhood, with God for its accordant principle; and he was now returned to present and urge the compromise. . . .

Lewis "Lew" Wallace (1827 - 1905) was an American lawyer, Union general in the American Civil War, governor of the New Mexico Territory, politician, diplomat and author from Indiana. Among his novels and biographies, Wallace is best known for his historical adventure story, Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ (1880), a bestselling novel that has been called "the most influential Christian book of the nineteenth century." Wallace's military career included service in the Mexican-American War and the American Civil War. He was appointed Indiana's adjutant general and commanded the 11th Indiana Infantry Regiment. Wallace, who attained the rank of major general, participated in the Battle of Fort Donelson, the Battle of Shiloh and the Battle of Monocacy. He also served on the military commission for the trials of the Lincoln assassination conspirators and presided over the trial of Henry Wirz, the Confederate commandant of the Andersonville prison camp. Wallace resigned from the U.S. Army in November 1865 and briefly served as a major general in the Mexican army, before returning to the United States. Wallace was appointed governor of the New Mexico Territory (1878-81) and served as U.S. minister to the Ottoman Empire (1881-85). Wallace retired to his home in Crawfordsville, Indiana, where he continued to write until his death in 1905.

No character to relate to: no substance to embrace. Runciman's 153: The Fall of Constantinople was eminently readable. I had hoped this would be an equally engaging account of the demise of a major civilization. Alas, I archived it after 20 pages.
