I'm on Day 2 now. I think I may have read this book before, or maybe I saw the movie. I love the intricacies of the material...I think everyone should be aware of how we have gotten to where we are today as a society and in our religious/spiritual practices. In some ways I think we may have gone backwards. I especially enjoy the discussion of whether Jesus laughed (that might be in Day 2).

Yes, Farmgirl, I've now read the book, and have tried to look into background. I was unaware what a tragic time the 1300's were, with famine, violence, and the failure of institutions as exemplified by the burning of the Abbey.
