An inspired twisting of history and fiction by the critically celebrated, best-selling author of The Name of the Rose and Foucault�s Pendulum.

Nineteenth-century Europe from Turin to Prague to Paris abounds with the ghastly and the mysterious. Conspiracies rule history. Jesuits plot against Freemasons. Italian republicans strangle priests with their own intestines. French criminals plan bombings by day and celebrate black masses at night. Every nation has its own secret service, perpetrating forgeries, plots, and massacres. From the unification of Italy to the Paris Commune to the Dreyfus Affair to notorious forgery The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, Europe is in tumult and everyone needs a scapegoat. 

But what if, behind all of these conspiracies both real and imagined, lay one lone man? What if that evil genius created the most infamous document of all? 

Eco takes his readers on an unforgettable journey through the underbelly of world-shattering events. The Prague Cemeteryis Umberto Eco at his most exciting, a novel immediately hailed as his masterpiece.
