After Adso confesses having had wood sex again, hence returns late, William generously gives the absolution for a one-off to become an understanding confessional father himself. Although the abbot treats the finally complete international delegations to a lavish welcome dinner, Franciscans nor Dominicans are in the mood to spare each-other Biblical claims that either evangelical poverty or a rich, powerful church is the only right way. Salvatore catches the peasant girl who nursed Anna's wounds before Adso's arrival, and warns his master against recognition by Bernardo Gui, who already remembers his face, not his past, and asks around.

In many senses, it is the episode of Rupert Everett. His Bernardo Gui works . As a large embroidery of nuances and desires, expectations and vulnerabilities. In same measure, Adso becomes little credible . And the confrontation between Pope men and Franciscans is well crafted. An episode - the middle of serie - proposing a coherent lecture of the vision of director, looking more for a large fresco of period than a faithfull adaptation. The result seems not so awfull .
