Plot Synopsis

Based on Umberto Eco's novel of the same name, THE NAME OF THE ROSE is a one-hour series set in 1327 Italy that follows the Franciscan monk William of Baskerville and his novice Adso von Melk as they arrive at a secluded monastery in the Alps. There they become witnesses to a series of mysterious murders. While Baskerville and Melk investigate and search for the killer, they are hunted themselves by the merciless inquisitor Bernard Gui, who prosecutes those who criticize the pope.
