In this week’s reading, Hasan was exiled from his community for supporting the pardon of his brother-in-law who was the suspected murderer of Zarwali. After that, Hasan describes his arrival in Cairo and the onset of the plague, children being affected first. Hasan says that everyday there will hundreds of deaths. He finally traveled to Rome, where the Pope X baptized him under his new Christian name, “Leo Africanus.” I thought the most interesting part of this week’s reading was learning about the religion.
