Synopsis: Excerpt: ... To gain instruction quite on other points. Since you are a man so wise, tell me which law, Which faith appears to you the better? NATHAN.       Sultan, I am a Jew. SALADIN.    And I a Mussulman: The Christian stands between us. Of these three Religions only one came be the true. A man, like you, remains not just where birth Has chanced to cast him, or, if he remains there, Does it from insight, choice, from grounds of preference.
