In the fortresses of the Assassins were kept alight the lamps of learning, culture and intellectual freedom which elsewhere were dimmed by the forces of barbarism. The Assassins present us with the intriguing spectacle of mutually supporting opposites, of wisdom safeguarded by ignorance, of free thought by fanaticism, of the utmost daring in speculation by an utter submission of intellect and will.
Frank Ridley, The Assassins
