Maometh, the so-called "Third Muhammed", was a Prophet. The Zensunni had originally emerged from a schism among his followers that had broken away from his teachings in 1381 BG.

Notes[]

The name seems to be a variant of the Arabic male name Mohammed or Muhammed or maybe a word-play on it and the Chinese surname "Mao" and the figure of "Baphometh", as his teachings incorporated elements from Arabic religion or Islam, Zen Buddhism and possibly Gnosticism. The name could also be derived from the word "Mahoma", which is the Spanish version of prophet Muhammad's name.
