Read in January, 2009

A fascinating read. Medieval philosophy made, dare I say it, sexy. Esoteric ideas made concrete through character's actions, philosophic and religious history put into the context of the power struggles that shaped which ideas survived and which were burned at the stake, and a pretty decent mystery to boot.
