    "Moses, in a pink tunic at left, commands his valiant army against the forces of the Moors, who are directed by the princess in the tower. Although the World Chronicle contains stories drawn from the Bible and ancient history, it also incorporates purposefully fabricated historical tales such as this one...The story of Moses fighting the Moors was invented in the Middle Ages, no doubt a revision of Biblical history intended to provide a sacred precedent for the attempts of medieval Christians to expel the Moors from Spain."
