Testament by Nino Ricci ( Book )
20 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 877 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Grounded in extensive research, making use of a Rashomon-like narrative strategy, and written with the elegant poetic eye that has earned Nino Ricci an international reputation, Testament is a bold work of historical fiction. It vividly recreates the world of first-century Palestine to explore the very beginnings of the myth surrounding the man we know as Jesus. Testament approaches Jesus through the refracting prism of four characters. We hear, in turn, from Judas, Mary Magdalen, Jesus' mother, Mary, and Simon, a young Syrian shepherd who is not in the Bible but who may remind readers of Huckleberry Finn. Distinct in concern, event, and style, each deeply human and beautifully rendered, these overlapping narratives together tell the recognizable story of the four gospels. But in Testament there is no recourse to miracle. Rather, Ricci has found plausible, naturalistic explanations for a good many of the Bible's miraculous events. And yet, as readers, we already begin to see how the story of this passionate, charismatic man, subject to different eyes and desires and to countless retellings, will be transformed into myth -- indeed, is already being transformed. Ricci is not the first novelist to approach this central figure of Western civilization, but here he accomplishes something of an entirely different order: a portrait that is historically grounded, philosophically rich, emotionally moving, and speaks eloquently to the place and power of stories in our lives"--Publisher's description

"Young Vittorio Innocente is the papmered son of Cristina, a woman whose husband has left Italy for work in North America. Beneath her placid surface, Cristina yearns to escape the restrictive village; and, one day, Vittorio is startled to find her in the family's stable, her ankle swelling from a snakebite. But what really happened to Cristina that day becomes the center of this tale - a story of passion and superstitution beneath pastoral calm, a mother's secret life witnessed by a child."
