schema:description"A mystery story set in a Benedictine monastery in Northern Italy at the beginning of the 14th century which takes place in seven days. The characters are almost all monks and other churchmen who become involved in a series of bizarre deaths at the monastery. The form of the novel is a detective story; the principal sleuth, Brother William of Baskerville, a Franciscan, solves the mystery of the classification of the great library in the monastery. The story is told many years after it takes place by Adso of Melk, a Benedictine and Brother William's "assistant" at the time. A "semiotic" murder mystery, it is a wonderful and entertaining novel."@en
