La storia vera più sensazionale del '900Dopo secoli e secoli di censura, finalmente la verità sul segreto più scottante della storiaCosa faresti se scoprissi che un quadro di famiglia che hai in casa da diversi anni è opera del genio Leonardo da Vinci? E che contiene alcuni misteriosi simboli? E che è l’ultima opera che il maestro dipinse prima di morire? Forse cominceresti a indagare per saperne qualcosa di più... È ciò che fa Fiona McLaren, quando scopre che una Madonna con Bambino appesa alla parete della casa di famiglia in Scozia è probabilmente opera di Leonardo da Vinci e riporta sul retro un’antica bolla papale. Da quel momento la donna prende in considerazione alcuni misteriosi elementi presenti nel dipinto e inizia una lunga, coraggiosa ricerca consultando i più grandi esperti mondiali di storia dell’arte. Il Femminino Sacro, il simbolo della rosa e del giglio, il Santo Graal e la Rosslyn Chapel, la misteriosa storia dei Catari, dei Caldei, dei Cavalieri Templari, la Massoneria: Fiona McLaren ripercorre duemila anni di storia – quella ufficiale e quella che molti vorrebbero cancellare – fino ad arrivare a dissipare il mistero che avvolge come una coltre di nebbia la figura di Maria Maddalena. E scopre una verità messa a tacere per secoli e di cui ora il dipinto di Leonardo fornisce prove schiaccianti.Simboli occulti, pericolosi misteri e una bolla papale.

Sixteenth century Europe is teeming with change and controversy: wars are being waged by princes and bishops and the repercussions of Luther are being felt through a convulsing Germany. In a remote corner of Poland a modest canon is practicing medicine and studying the heavens, preparing a theory that will shatter the medieval view of the universe. In this astonishing work of historical imagination, John Banville offers a vivid portrait of a man of painful reticence, haunted by a malevolent brother and baffled by the conspiracies that rage around him and his ideas. For in a world that is equal parts splendor and barbarism, an obscure cleric who seeks "the secret music of the universe" poses a most devastating threat.

Philippa is indeed hiding something and she’s not the only one. Guest soon learns that Walcote is rumored to be in possession of a mystical holy relic so powerful that some would even kill for it. Guest must contend with his nemesis, Sheriff Simon Wynchcombe in the search for answers to the questions surrounding the mysterious Walcotes. With each new day comes another layer of intrigue and Guest quickly becomes entangled in a strange world of superstition, seduction, and murder.

Bestseller in Spagna Un grande thriller Il libro proibito di Lorenzo il Magnifico La Firenze di Lorenzo de’ Medici, Pico della Mirandola, Marsilio Ficino e Leonardo da Vinci. Qui Mauricio Coloma dovrà fronteggiare pericolosi cospiratori e rischiare la vita, prima di scoprire quale grande potere si nasconda dietro l’anello che la sua famiglia si tramanda da generazioni. In punto di morte il padre glielo ha donato rivelandogli un segreto: non è cristiano di nascita, ma ebreo convertito. I Coloma discendono dal rabbino Abraham Abulafia e da tempo custodiscono quell’anello di smeraldo su cui sono incise le parole Luz, luz, más luz. Sconvolto, Mauricio lascia la natia Spagna alla volta dell’Italia, nella speranza di vendere il gioiello e rifarsi una vita a Firenze. Appena giunto in città, non solo riesce ad arrivare al cospetto del Magnifico e a offrirgli la pietra preziosa, ma lo salva addirittura dalla congiura de’ Pazzi. Il ragazzo si guadagna così un posto alla corte fiorentina, e riceve da Lorenzo un incarico di prestigio nella banca di famiglia. Sembra un nuovo inizio: per Mauricio si spalancano le porte del palazzo dei Medici, dove entra in contatto con i più grandi artisti e uomini di scienza dell’epoca. Eppure inquietanti pericoli incombono su di lui e sul Magnifico: l’ascesa del terribile Savonarola, le invidie di tanti nobili fiorentini... Ma chi sono i congiurati che vogliono la rovina di Lorenzo e di Mauricio? Quali poteri possiede lo smeraldo di cui tutti vogliono a ogni costo impossessarsi? Quali misteri cela la sua criptica iscrizione? Una feroce cospirazione nella Firenze del Rinascimento.

Unbeknownst to Karen, while Mark’s marriage has deteriorated his obsession with her has grown. And as Mark’s rich fantasy life takes on a more sinister edge, rumors begin to spread about Karen and a bigger secret is uncovered. And soon Karen finds that Mark is not the only one who has taken an undesired interest in her… Jason Starr is one of our most accomplished writers of the darkness that lies within the human heart, and Savage Lane is his most riveting and intimate novel yet—a dark, domestic thriller and an honest, searing satire of a declining marriage, suburban life, and obsessive love.

Charles Lamb (1775-1834) was an English essayist with Welsh heritage, best known for his The Last Essays of Elia and for the children's book Tales from Shakespeare (1807), which he produced along with his sister, Mary Lamb (1764-1847). Charles and Mary both suffered periods of mental illness, and Charles spent six weeks in a psychiatric hospital during 1795. He was, however, already making his name as a poet. Despite Lamb's bouts of melancholia, both he and his sister enjoyed an active and rich social life. Their London quarters became a kind of weekly salon for many of the most outstanding theatrical and literary figures of the day. Amongst his famous works are Rosamund Gray (1798), John Woodvil (1802), Poetry for Children (1808), Mr. H-: A Farce in Two Acts (1806), A Masque of Days, Mrs. Leicester's School (1809), Essays, The Witch, Album Verses, With a Few Others, Poems, Sonnets and Blank Verses and The Wife's Trial; or, The Intruding Widow.

In 97 CE Julius Frontinus was appointed by the Emperor Nerva to the post of water commissioner for the city of Rome. In the De Aquaductu Urbis Romae he sets forth his duties, responsibilities and accomplishments during his first year in office. He sketches the history of the aqueducts, furnishes a wealth of technical data and quotes verbatim from legal documents. This edition is the first since 1922 to be based on the single authoritative witness discovered at Monte Cassino in 1429 and is also the first to take into account the idiosyncrasies of its twelfth-century scribe, Peter the Deacon, a man notorious for literary affectations of his own. R. H. Rodgers provides the first full commentary since the early eighteenth century, dividing his attention between text and language on the one hand and content and interpretation on the other.
