An ode to tolerance and the liberty of conscience, The Heretic is an unforgettable story of a man and the passions that move him to action. At the very moment Martin Luther nails his ninety-five theses to a church door and launches the movement that will divide the Roman Catholic Church, a child is born, his fate marked by the political and religious upheaval taking root in Europe. He grows up to become a prosperous merchant and joins the Reformation movement, which is secretly advancing on the Iberian Peninsula, the historical bastion of the Catholic church. But before long, the Spanish Inquisition will drive the Reformers to put their lives at stake. This is less a novel of ideas than an extraordinarily imaginative evocation of provincial life in a past age.
