Cabiz, Also Called Aimé
Cabiz, Also Called Aimé, a learned Mohammedan who became noted for maintaining the superiority of Jesus Christ to Mohammed. Being summoned before the Divan, he silenced the two "cadilaskers" of Roumelia and Anatolia. He was then set at liberty, but the sultan, having listened to the discussion, referred the matter to the mufti and cadi of Constantinople. This time Cabiz was found guilty, and sentenced to death. He was executed on September 19,1527. An edict published on occasion of his execution forbade all Mohammedans, under penalty of death, to prefer thenceforth the doctrine of Jesus Christ to that of Mohammed. — Hoefer, Biographie Generale, 8:27.
