The Gaelic Maundeville (Author: John Maundeville)

paragraph 117

And the same book says that she brought forth her Son under a palm-tree, and seeing him she had shame and wept, and said that she would rather have been dead. But the babe spake to her and told her not to be dismayed. And Mahomet often relates in the Koran that the babe, namely Jesus Christ, spake when He was born, and said that He came from mighty God, and that He was that God who should come to judge mankind, to put the sinners into hell and the righteous into the (heavenly) kingdom; and that of all the prophets that ever came, He was the most excellent, and that He gave sight to the blind and brought the dead to life, and made the lame to walk and the deaf to hear, and healed lepers and every other disease, and cast devils out of men and beasts, and Himself went whole to heaven. And they (the Saracens) give great honour to the books which contain the gospels, and especially to the gospel of Gabriel, and those that know not how to read books often recite that gospel as a prayer and with good will.
