  • "Book Description: A spectacular best seller and now a classic, The Name of the Rose catapulted Umberto Eco, an Italian professor of semiotics turned novelist, to international prominence. An erudite murder mystery set in a fourteenth-century monastery, it is not only a gripping story but also a brilliant exploration of medieval philosophy, history, theology, and logic. 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. The Name of the Rose offers the reader not only an ingeniously constructed mystery-complete with secret symbols and coded manuscripts-but also an unparalleled portrait of the medieval world on the brink of profound transformation."

  • "Novel."
  • "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
