William discretely overlooks Adso's time spent with the peasant lay slut and works on a code to read the Apocalyptic verses on the library frescoes, which he interprets as indications they stem from Dolcino's heresy, which Florence eradicated by sword and pyre. Adso's interest in Dolcino's writings alerts dogmatic monks Benno and Malachia. While the papal troops continue their unrelenting advance, a papal message clears the cardinal and inquisitor Bernardo Gui of sins in advance. Huntress Anna seizes the passage to exact bloody long-overdue revenge for her family's death on Bernardo Gui. (Al)chemical knowledge proves valuable in the bathtub drowning case after inspecting what's missing from the abbey's apothecary stock. Written by KGF Vissers

for two gifts, see it !
22 June 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

Fausto Maria Sciarappa gives a good Nicola. Rupert Everett propose a more profound Bernardo Gui and, not surprising, John Turturro sustain, in beatiful manner, entire episode. Sure, you expect the novel and the vision of director deserves be respected , but the feel to see a sort of puzzle in which the pieces are used for new drawings, simmilar to original but not the same, with high good intentions, off course, is, for me, a little serious problem. But, the opening of each episode and the hard - subtle work of John Turturro are precious gifts.
