About This Item

Warner, New York, 11th paperback printing. Condition: Good, edge and corner wear, creasing along spine, slight bowing, well read book.

The year is 1327. Benedictines in a wealthy Italian abbey are suspected of heresy, and Brother William of Baskerville arrives to investigate. When his delicate mission is suddenly overshadowed by seven bizarre deaths, Brother William turns detective. His tools are the logic of Aristotle, the theology of Aquinas, the empirical insights of Roger Bacon—all sharpened to a glistening edge by wry humor and a ferocious curiosity. He collects evidence, deciphers secret symbols and coded manuscripts, and digs into the eerie labyrinth of the abbey, where "the most interesting things happen at night."


The Name of the Rose, a novel by Umberto Eco, is a historical whodunnit — a murder mystery set in an Italian monastery in the year 1327. It is an intellectual mystery combining semiotics in fiction, biblical analysis, medieval studies and literary theory. First published in Italian in 1980 under the title Il nome della rosa, it appeared in 1983 in an English translation by William Weaver.

One of the best mystery novels of all time! It is set in the middle ages and as well as being a mystery it also dives into a lot of political, religious, and philosophical issues of the time. It offers amazing insights into everything that is happening there and a thrilling chase for a serial killer on who's killing anyone who gets their hands on one book, in a secluded benedictine abbey
