Abstract:

In 1327, Brother William of Baskerville is sent to investigate a wealthy Italian abbey whose monks are suspected of heresy. When his mission is overshadowed by seven bizarre deaths patterned on the book of Revelation, Brother William turns detective, following the trail of a conspiracy that brings him face-to-face with the abbey's labyrinthine secrets, the subversive effects of laughter, and the medieval Inquisition. Caught in a power struggle between the emperor he serves and the Pope who rules the Church, Brother William comes to see that what is at stake is larger than any mere political dispute - that his investigation is being blocked by those who fear imagination, curiosity, and the power of ideas.
