Marcellus IX was Pope of the Catholic Church in the late 1430s AH, or late 2010s AD. He was a progressive, modern man, at least as much so as one could be when at the head of an ancient organization with a long history of backward thinking. The Muslim world therefore saw him as an important hope for progress and reason in Europe's future.
