Most widely held works by James Miller
Mahomet the prophet or, fanaticism : a tragedy in five acts by James Miller( Book )

112 editions published between 1744 and 2011 in English and held by 644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This powerful work was read by Voltaire to Frederick of Prussia in 1740, to the king's great delight. The play was withdrawn after the fourth representation, under pressure of Church authorities who professed to see in it a bloody satire against the Christian religion. Almost three hundred years later critics are still unclear if this play is a rebuke of Islam or of Christianity or, perhaps, both. Wilder Publications is a green publisher.
