The rule of four by Ian Caldwell( Book )

92 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 4,053 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An ivy league murder, a mysterious coded manuscript, and the secrets of a Renaissance prince collide memorably in THE RULE OF FOUR -- a brilliant work of fiction that weaves together suspense and scholarship, high art and unimaginable treachery. It's Easter at Princeton. Seniors are scrambling to finish their theses. And two students, Tom Sullivan and Paul Harris, are a hair's breadth from solving the mysteries of the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili--a renowned text attributed to an Italian nobleman, a work that has baffled scholars since its publication in 1499. For Tom, their research has been a link to his family's past -- and an obstacle to the woman he loves. For Paul, it has become an obsession, the very reason for living. But as their deadline looms, research has stalled -- until a long-lost diary surfaces with a vital clue. And when a fellow researcher is murdered just hours later, Tom and Paul realize that they are not the first to glimpse the Hypnerotomachia 's secrets. Suddenly the stakes are raised, and as the two friends sift through the codes and riddles at the heart of the text, they are beginning to see the manuscript in a new light--not simply as a story of faith, eroticism and pedantry, but as a bizarre, coded mathematical maze. And as they come closer and closer to deciphering the final puzzle of a book that has shattered careers, friendships and families, they know that their own lives are in mortal danger. Because at least one person has been killed for knowing too much. And they know even more. From the streets of fifteenth-century Rome to the rarified realm of the Ivy League, from a shocking 500 year-old murder scene to the drama of a young man's coming of age, THE RULE OF FOUR takes us on an entertaining, illuminating tour of history--as it builds to a pinnacle of nearly unbearable suspense

"Depuis 1499, des savants tentent de décoder un chef-d'oeuvre de la Renaissance, Le Songe de Poliphile. Ecrit en cinq langues, orné de gravures érotiques et violentes, ce texte a résisté à tous les assauts, brisé des destins, des amitiés et des vies. Pourtant, deux étudiants de Princeton osent s'y mesurer et, au fil de messages cachés, découvrent l'histoire d'un prince du Quattrocento et l'existence d'une crypte secrète qui recèle des trésors inouïs.

2004, le pontificat de Jean-Paul II touche à sa fin. A quelques jours de l'ouverture d'une importante exposition, dans les musées du Vatican, consacrée au saint suaire et au Diatessaron, le premier écrit réunissant les quatre Evangiles, son conservateur, Ugo Nogara, est abattu. Le même soir, l'appartement d'Alex Andreou, un jeune prêtre de l'Eglise d'Orient qui a aidé Ugo à interpréter les textes sacrés, est mis à sac. Son frère aîné, Simon, prêtre catholique romain et membre de la secrétairerie d'Etat du Saint-Siège, présent sur les lieux au moment du crime, se mure dans un silence incompréhensible avant d'être inculpé du meurtre par un tribunal ecclésiastique. Tandis qu'il cherche à savoir qui se cache derrière ce procès, qui a tué le conservateur et pourquoi son frère a choisi de ne pas se défendre, Alex se retrouve propulsé dans une sombre machination en plein coeur du Vatican. Il découvre alors qu'Ugo s'apprêtait à faire une révélation retentissante sur la relique la plus fascinante et la plus contestée de la chrétienté : le suaire de Turin. (www.payot.ch)

Piąta ewangelia by Ian Caldwell( )

1 edition published in 2017 in Polish and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wielce kontrowersyjna relikwia oraz wola umierającego papieża sprawiają, że dwaj bracia--księża pracujący w Watykanie--wyruszają w intelektualną podróż, by rozwikłać największą tajemnicę w historii Chrześcijaństwa.Dziesięć lat temu napisana przez Iana Caldwella i Dustina Thomasona Reguła czterech została okrzyknięta przez krytyków powieścią "genialną...i nadzwyczaj erudycyjną" (The New York Times), "fascynującą" (People) oraz "manifestacją olbrzymiej wiedzy autorów" (San Francisco Chronicle). Dzisiaj, po latach żmudnych przygotowań i szeroko zakrojonych historycznych poszukiwań, Ian Caldwell wraca z mistrzowską powieścią, która ugruntowuje jego pozycję wśród najambitniejszych współczesnych pisarzy.W 2004 roku, u schyłku pontyfikatu Jana Pawła II, w Muzeach Watykańskich organizowana jest tajemnicza ekspozycja. Tydzień przed jej planowanym otwarciem kurator wystawy zostaje zamordowany podczas poufnego spotkania w Castel Gandolfo. Tego samego wieczoru ma miejsce włamanie do mieszkania współpracującego z kuratorem Alexa Andreou, duchownego greckokatolickiego, który z pięcioletnim synem mieszka za murami Watykanu. Kiedy Żandarmerii Watykańskiej nie udaje się wskazać sprawcy żadnego z tych przestępstw, ksiądz Andreou, powodowany troską o bezpieczeństwo własnej rodziny, podejmuje prywatne śledztwo. Aby odnaleźć mordercę, musi odkryć tajemnicę, którą jego ofiara zabrała ze sobą do grobu. Duchowny wie tylko, że w oparciu o cztery kanoniczne Ewangelie oraz tak zwaną harmonię ewangelijną, czyli stworzone ponad sto pięćdziesiąt lat po Chrystusie zestawienie czterech Ewangelii znane jako Diatessaron, kurator dokonał sensacyjnego odkrycia na temat najświętszej relikwii Kościoła katolickiego. Kiedy ksiądz Andreou zaczyna poznawać prawdę o śmierci swojego przyjaciela oraz jej konsekwencjach dla relacji między dwoma największymi Kościołami chrześcijańskimi, pada ofiarą prześladowań człowieka, który jest osobiście zainteresowany tym, żeby rewelacja zamordowanego kuratora nie ujrzała światła dziennego. Aby przetrwać, ksiądz Andreou musi się okazać sprytniejszy niż jego prześladowca
