"Todo comienza una hermosa mañana de finales de noviembre del año 1327 cuando Fray Guillermo de Baskerville (Sean Connery), un monje franciscano y antiguo inquisidor, y su inseparable discípulo el novicio Adso de Melk (Christian Slater), que es quien relata la historia, acuden a una abadía benedictina situada en el norte de la península italiana para intentar esclarecer la muerte del joven miniaturista Adelmo da Otranto. Durante su estancia en la abadía van desapareciendo misteriosamente más monjes, a quienes encuentran muertos al poco tiempo. Lentamente, y gracias a la información aportada por algunos monjes, Guillermo va esclareciendo los hechos. El móvil de los crímenes parecen ser unos antiguos tratados sobre la licitud de la risa que se encuentran en la biblioteca del complejo, de la cual se dice que es la mayor del mundo cristiano. ¿Quién es el asesino? ¿Qué hicieron sus víctimas para morir asesinadas? Nadie lo sabe." --AVH web site
