>>>> Randolph was raised and remained within the Episcopalian Church. Historians reject assertions that Randolph at any time was a Muslim; the only evidence is one letter in 1818 in which he said that as a youth he rooted for the Muslim side when reading about the Crusades. <<<<<
Which “historians” per wiki?
I just read Randolph’s letter to Key (online) telling about his conversion,so that tells me that he was converted from something other than a “Christian” denomination, since he spoke of being reconciled to God through Christ. I think he became a REAL Christian.
I don’t have time to look for the Muslim reference, but it is cited as: Hugh A. Garland, “The life of John Randolph of Roanoke” (New York: D. Appleton & Co., 1853) Vol. II, p. 102, to Dr. Brockenbrough, Sept. 25, 1818.
