Paul Mulla (1882-1959) or Monseigneur Paul (name prior to conversion; Mollazade Mehmed Ali) was a Turkish Cretan who, after having been a fervent Muslim in his youth, had converted to the Roman Catholic Church and baptised in 1905, to the great sorrow of his father İbrahim Pertev, and was ordained priest in 1913. He was a disciple, and then the godson, of Maurice Blondel. He was the priest entrusted by the Pope Pius XI with the undertaking of Islamic Studies at the Pontifical Oriental Institute.[1] He wrote a book on his spiritual journey. He died in 1959.
