Description The paper focuses on the question of attitudes of Franciscan friars, who travelled to the Mongols in the 13th century, towards the consumation of qumis by local Christians and potential convertites. For its central role in local religious ritual, qumis was considered by some Christians as a food unacceptable for Christians. The paper analyses the attitudes of Franciscan friars towards the tabuization of qumis and its potential impact on the sucess of their missions.
