A sophisticated, historical thrillerwith fascinating ingredients: the setting I nGermany during the clashes between the Catholics
and the Lutherans, the fabulous Rosicrucians of Johannes Valentinus
Andreae, the secret plots, the power games and the alchemic utopias recalling Frances Yates’extraordinary studies. Starting with just the fewclues left by Brux, Panza reconstructs the life of a man ahead of his cime. Panza ends up staging a mortai clash between the paladins of mnemotechnics and doctor Brux, master of
forgetfulness which is an erudite reflection of the risks and powers of memory.
