Il Nome della Rosa

Umberto Eco [1980]

O Nome da Rosa


O Nome da Rosa é o primeiro romance do autor italiano Umberto Eco e foi publicado em 1980. A história envolve mistério e intriga num convento italiano do Séc. XIV combinando elementos de semiótica, análise da Bíblia, estudos medievais e teoria literária num mistério intelectual sem paralelo.

A história começa com a chegada do frade franciscano Frei William de Baskerville e o seu noviço Adso de Melk a um convento beneditino para participar num debate teológico. À sua chegada ocorre um suicídio e depois mais outras mortes em circunstâncias misteriosas. Frei William é encarregado pelo abade do mosteiro de investigar estas mortes, o que leva os protagonistas a explorar uma labiríntica biblioteca medieval, discutir o poder subversivo do riso e a enfrentar a Inquisição. A curiosidade de Frei William e os seus elevados poderes dedutivos fornecem todas as chaves para desvendar o mistério da Abadia.

Il Nome della Rosa

Umberto Eco [1980]

The Name of the Rose


The Name of the Rose is the debut novel by Italian author Umberto Eco. It is an historical murder mystery set in an Italian monastery, in the year 1327, 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.

In the story, Franciscan friar William of Baskerville and his novice Adso of Melk travel to a Benedictine monastery in Northern Italy to attend a theological disputation. As they arrive, the monastery is disturbed by a suicide. As the story unfolds, several other monks die under mysterious circumstances. William is tasked by the monastery's abbot to investigate the deaths, and fresh clues with each murder victim lead William to dead ends and new clues. The protagonists explore a labyrinthine medieval library, discuss the subversive power of laughter, and come face to face with the Inquisition, a reaction to the Waldensians, a heresy which started in the 12th century and claimed to advocate an adherence to the Gospel as taught by Jesus and his disciples. William's innate curiosity and highly developed powers of logic and deduction provide the keys to unraveling the abbey's mysteries.
