POD: The story of Lilith degrades slightly before the First Council of Nicea in 325 AD leading to a theological debate over the "First Mother." A number of Female Bishops at the council, and many men, argue that Lilith who was far more assertive and wanted to be treated as Adam's equal was the first Mother of mankind, not Eve who was far more submissive. These bishops were eventually removed, but went on to found Lilithian Christianity, separate from Roman Catholicism and exiled to Ethiopia.
In 615 when a number of Muslim Converts flee Mecca for Ethiopia they are amazed to see the society founded under Lilithian Christianity; it is one where women are treated equal to men in every way: They can own property, participate in government, and can even petition for divorce. The society is also much more productive than a similarly sized patriarchy as a result of having the whole population instead of just half being allowed to study and work.
The Prophet is eventually contacted by these converts and amends the Quran with many of the texts of Lilithian Christianity, changing Genesis, adding the Gospel of Eve along side the Gospel of Mary.
By 1300 AD the Islamic Caliphate has receded, but their conquered territory of Granada, now independent, has become a troublesome thron in the side of the Roman Catholic Church. Having become a modern nation state, Granada trades openly with the rest of Europe, and Muslim philosophy has driven many Catholic women to either convert or demand equality in the Church. The Pope orders that the Inquisition be broadened to include "Unfaithful," women.
