Book Review

The Name of the Rose is a story of murder, politics and ideas. Late in 1327 a Franciscan friar, William of Baskerville, assisted by Adso of Melk, arrived at a Benedictine monastery in Northern Italy to lay the groundwork for a peace conference between the papal delegation of Pope John and Emperor Louis of France. Their arrival at the abbey is welcomed by the mysterious death (suicide) of a young monk.
