The Gaelic Maundeville (Author: John Maundeville)

paragraph 253

And when envoys would come to him out of other countries, he would bring them into that Paradise, and display it to them, both melodies and wells, and give them a drink whereof anon they should be drunken, and tell them that, if they should fain endure death for his sake, he would bring their souls into that paradise, and that they should for ever be of the age of those maidens, again listening to that music, and that they should be brought (thither) when they pleased if they would leave their own glory. Those of them that accepted that (offer) he would despatch to such lord or man of the country as he thought fit, (to slay him and) to be slain themselves; and he would tell them to have no fear, for it was certain that their souls would come again with him into that Paradise. And by means of that wile many of the lords of the country were killed.
