Summary (From the publisher):

The White Dominican is Meyrink's most esoteric novel, and draws on the wisdom of a number of mystical traditions, the most important of which is Tao. It is set in a mystical version of the Bavarian town of Wasserburg, which sits on a promontory surrounded on three sides by the River Inn.

The novel describes the spiritual journey of the simple hero, who, guided by a number of figures, escapes the "Medusa's head" of the world to a transfiguration, through which he joins the "living chain" that stretches to infinity.
