The action of the novel occurs in France and in Spain (Asturias), to where a young man and his love flee with a group of monks and novices to found a new, egalitarian, community which soon begins to annoy the authorities, and which the people end up by calling ‘Sin Village.’ As background to this emotional story lies the minutely detailed account of a great swindle. The duke finds a man willing to go through Christ’s calvary in order to serve as a human model. This was a great fraud, perhaps the greatest in history:The Holy Shroud of Turin.
