Here are some one liners...
Italian Slave Girls For Sale -- The Italian city of Capua falls and the women are rounded up and sold in Rome. I talk about slavery, indentured servitude and what Europeans thought of the moral problem of selling white slave girls in the heart of their religious city.
The Secret Treaty of Granada -- The Kingdom of Naples is split up between France and Spain in a secret deal. It reminds me of when France and England made a secret pact to split up the Ottoman Empire after World War One.
Why Sharia Law Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time -- The new Mamluk Sultan attempts to impose reform on the corrupt and brutal justice system by centralizing the courts and imposing Sharia Law. It doesn't work, but the point is that at the time Sharia law was the better option than what they were doing. I also talk about the brutal laws on the books of Christian law and Jewish law.
