In Harry Turtledove's story "Islands in the Stream", Constantinople
falls way early (some decades before the story opens) and the story is about
the khan of the Bulgars deciding whether to become Orthodox or Islamic
(we don't hear from any Jews). A lot of the debate is in this style:
Muslims can't drink, or eat pork, but multiple wives are OK; in
Christianity, the reverse.
