An Odor of Sanctity 1965
Muslim Spain is under attack by a new messiah and ninth
century Spain becomes the tumultuous battleground between Islam and
Christianity. An Odor of Sanctity is the story of Alaric, a Christian Goth, who wades through
this raging sea of religious passion and hate. Admired by the Moors and
employed by the Jews, Alaric is a swordsman as well as a scholar and prophet.
Some claim that he is a saint ____ others believe he is the devil. It might
have been better had Emir al-Rahman II followed the advice of his counselors
and put Alaric to death. But the emir, himself, falls under Alaric’s spell and
becomes an unwitting pawn in Arian Christianity’s scheme for the ultimate
defeat of Islam.
