The Gaelic Maundeville (Author: John Maundeville)

paragraph 125

Be it known unto you that Mahomet was born in


Arabia, and that he was a horse-boy therein with merchants, travelling from land to land until he came to Egypt, which was at that time a Christian country. While he was travelling he happened to meet a hermit in his chapel in the desert of Arabia, and having entered the chapel the (little) door was enlarged for him, so that its size became wondrous. And that (the Saracens say) is Mahomet's first miracle.
