La papessa( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in Multiple languages and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nata nell'inverno dell'814 d.c., Johanna è la figlia indesiderata del prete del villaggio, che investe il suo tempo a istruire i figli maschi e a battere la consorte. Ostinata e decisamente illuminata, Johanna viene notata dal maestro greco Esculapio che, vincendo la ritrosia paterna, asseconda ed educa la sua sensibilità. Ma la partenza dell'anziano saggio, rigetterà la fanciulla al suo destino di donna, almeno fino a quando Johanna non si darà alla fuga, scegliendo per sé un diverso avvenire nella scuola della cattedrale di Dorstadt. Protetta dalla nobiltà del Conte Gerold, avvierà, tra gelosia e dileggio, i suoi studi. Invaghitasi di Gerold, proverà a resistere a quel sentimento votandosi ai libri e alla cultura ma la guerra e la crudeltà delle irruzioni sassoni li separeranno. Johanna, costretta a risolvere la propria sorte e indossati abito e identità maschili, troverà riparo nel monastero benedettino di Fulda, dove verrà edotta nell'arte medica e nella teologia col nome di Johannes Anglicus. La paura di essere scoperta e punita come impostore la porterà infine a Roma, dove la sua dedizione ai malati e gli incredibili successi professionali non passeranno inosservati. Condotta al talamo di Papa Sergio, afflitto dalla malattia, ne diventerà presto medico e consigliere. Scampato alla morte il Santo Padre, poi avvelenato da vescovi invisi, il monaco guaritore è destinato ad occupare il seggio di Pietro. L'incontro inaspettato con Gerold e la congiura di chi brama a deporla, lambiranno e minacceranno l'autorità spirituale del ̜Papa Populi. (Mymovies)
