it was amazing
Read from March 30 to April 08, 2010

Story of two men, simply monk and noble (charismatic) arcibishop, later pope, from future middle-age-like (plus in some aspects renaissance-like and 19. century-like)world about finding way to God, love and hapiness.
I thought for first time about dogmatica and spiritual confussion in middle age. It must be terrible! I feel so sorry for the poor people...
But, all this is so interesting! Very good book.
And there are some gay stories, too :o), some nice, some cruel ones: poor sweet (gay young unhappy monk, later succesful gay priest) Torrildo (I love him and wish him happiness!), other (bad) arcibishop (uncle of ruler of Texark), who likes young boys (as Torrildo - he rape him and want to kill him), the terrible rape of poor first main hero (monk) as boy by soldiers (he fears soldiers his all life because it), terrible rape of mother of second main hero (arcibishop), which led her in lesbian relationships only (she was probably bisexual, also she can love women, when men hurt her so much) and to hate her child (arcibishop) born from this rape, "manly" behaviour of brave barbarian nomads who wiill always rape all women (from little girls to old women) and all boys, and so on... Surprisingly a lot of it.
