English Summary/英文概要：A magnificent novel, full of passion and intrigue, a fast-paced thriller revolving around a conspiracy at that point in history when the Church on one side and Martin Luther on the other must choose between power and people. They will both choose power.
Worms, 1521. Martin Luther is forced by the Emperor to forswear his heretical theses, but he refuses and stands up for his radical ideas. Under severe threats, he manages to escape: someone is plotting ingenious subterfuges behind his back. It’s Jacob Fugger, “the Rich”, major merchant and banker, possibly the most powerful man in the entire Western world; he helps Luther and receives him in his house. Fugger has his reasons to keep Luther alive and, most of all, to keep him under his power…
Then another man shows up at Fugger’s house: he has a troubled past and a secret mission, his name is Paolo de Mola and his plans, as well as those of his evil master, will not be ruined, not by Thomas Müntzer nor by power intrigues. Only love can make him stumble: his forbidden and undercover love for young and beautiful Sybille, Jacob Fugger’s wife. At that point in history, the Church on one side and Luther on the other must choose between power and people. They will both choose power. And power takes the shape that it still has today. Not weapons, not religion: money.
Martigli’s ability to intertwine history and fiction is captivating, giving life to a great novel, full of passions and plot twists: the story of the birth of economic power, a power that is still running our lives. Awards/获奖情况： “Like Ken Follett and Ildefonso Falcones, Martigli builds up real, historical events in masterfully wrought adventure stories where the reader is invariably hooked from the first page to the last. A sure bestseller hit.”–laRepubblica
