The Name of the Rose

The Name of the Rose, which sold 50 million copies worldwide, is an experimental medieval whodunit set in a monastic library.

In 1327, Brother William of Baskerville arrives to investigate heresy among the monks in an Italian abbey; a series of bizarre murders overshadows the mission. Within the mystery is a tale of books, librarians, patrons, censorship, and the search for truth in a period of tension between the Papacy and the Holy Roman Empire.
