Simon Darcourt, a goodhearted priest and scholar...Clement Hollier, a professor with a passion for the darker side of medieval psychology...the defrocked monk John Parlabane...Arthur Cornish, a rich young businessman who inherits some troublesome paintings and manuscripts...and Maria Theotoky, the beguiling graduate student who exerts a strange power over all these men. Robertson Davies uses his magical touch to weave together the destinies of this remarkable cast of characters, creating a wise and witty portrait of love, murder, and scholarship at a modern university.

This is one in a trilogy, but it could be read on its own. Enjoy!

First book in his Cornish Trilogy. Davies is arguably the best Canadian writer, and this trilogy is no exception.
