When a murder occurs at a secluded Benedictine Abbey, William is called in to investigate. As he and his apprentice, Adson von Melk (Christian Slater), delve deeper and deeper into the case, more dead bodies begin to turn up. Eventually, Bernardo Gui, an inquisitor played by F.

Sean Connery's performance earned him the award for Best Actor at the 1988 British Academy Awards.~ Matthew Tobey, All Movie Guide
