Example text

That [the author] cannot quite control,” Mark D. Jordan comments in a tour de force reading of the documents surrounding the legend. Pelagius’s refusal to exchange his heavenly destiny for the earthly rewards that would ensue if he became the caliph’s minion leads to his dismemberment.

But I suspect the immediate template for A Wonderful Accident lies in the medieval legend of St. Pelagius, a martyrdom narrative that pits Muslim sodomy against Christian faith as embodied in the figure of a beautiful youth.
