The story of a lonely prophet of experimental science and a suspected sorcerer, Roger Bacon, who lived in the dark days of thirteenth century England, Paris and Rome. This historical novel is a powerful, thoughtful and entirely enthralling reconstruction of Bacon's long life and intellectual struggle to free his time from sterile scholasticism.
