The Company of AdventurersBook - 1997
The son of a heinous sinner, Medardus is brought up in a monastery to atone for his father's wicked ways. After succumbing to temptation, however, Medardus himself is lured into a life of sin, and he embarks upon a fantastical journey in which he meets his doppelganger, involves himself in a game of double impersonation, and becomes embroiled in murderous intrigues at the Vatican. First published in 1815, this is a macabre masterpiece of German literature.
