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 ;
