"The Name of the Rose" is a murder mystery set in an Italian monastery in the year 1327, combining semiotics in fiction, biblical analysis, medieval studies, and literary theory. Seven mysterious deaths lead a monk-turned-detective to follow symbolic clues that become increasingly sinister the more he learns. Part historical fiction, part delicious mystery -- and one of the best-selling books ever published.
