Overview

Aventura en estado puro en una novela cuyo tema es de candente actualidad: los fanatismos religiosos.

Soy espía y tengo miedo... Así empieza la crónica que escribe en el siglo XIII fray Julián sobre el cruel asedio a Montségur y la lucha entre cátaros y católicos. Siglos después, en 1939, un medievalista agnóstico emprende un peligroso viaje por el Berlín nazi en busca de su esposa de origen judío. En la actualidad, un grupo de musulmanes radicales se inmola en Frankfurt dejando tras de sí un mensaje críptico que pone en estado de alerta al Centro Antiterrorista de la Unión Europea, cuyos agentes, con la ayuda de los servicios secretos del Vaticano, intentarán desvelar un enigma que une la intolerancia de la Inquisición, la sinrazón fascista y el integrismo islámico en una frase: «Algún día alguien vengará la sangre de los inocentes». Un musulmán captado por una célula terrorista, un jesuita experto en herejías, un conde francés obsesionado por una dramática herencia familiar, un hombre misterioso -El Facilitador- que desde la sombra maneja los hilos del poder junto a una intrépida joven de los servicios antiterroristas protagonizan este apasionante libro sobre la venganza y la traición, con el violento conflicto entre Oriente y Occidente como telón de fondo. En su novela más madura y ambiciosa, Julia Navarro sorprende con una vertiginosa aventura que nos transporta a lugares como Jerusalén, Granada, Roma o Estambul, y que indaga en las causas del fanatismo religioso y la intolerancia a lo largo de los siglos.

    more from this reviewer

    Julia Navarro has written an epic novel that should be read by everyone, not only because it is magnificent, but also because it is a lesson about religious fanaticism in its worst form.

    La sangre de los Inocentes in Three Parts

    The first part: starts in the XIIIth century, when the inquisition has surrounded a group of "Cátaros" (agnostic christian that did not recognize the Pope as any building to pray) at the Montségur fortress/mountain. The story is told by Fray Julián, a Dominican who was a scribe for the inquisition. His mother was inside the heretic castle and he had to watch for nine months the siege, then the actual burning of all those heretics, including his mother, under the orders of a very cruel head inquisitor, Fray Ferrer.

    Julian's mother requests that his son writes the accounts of the siege so that there will be a record of the Catholic Church's cruelty, which he does.

    Arrangements are made to save the tale at the count Bertran D'Amis' castle (a sympathizer) where, Fray Julián and his half brother have sheltered their half sister, Teresa. They also were able to save their treasures and hide them somewhere away from the Church

    The Chronic of Fray Julián reflected the story of a very sick man, who had to live the contradiction of being loyal to his family and his Church. He was a man of good, who hated violence, and who had to confront the fanaticism of the thirteenth century Catholic Church

    The second part: 1938, a respectable professor at The University of Paris, Ferdinand Arnaud, specialized in Medieval history is summoned by Étienne Marie de la Parisiere, XXII count d'Amis to authenticate the chronicles of Fray Julián.

    The count thinks that the chronicle can lead him to find the treasure of the "cátaros" which the count thinks may contain the Holy Grail. The count has allied himself with Nazi's because he wants desperately to liberate the region where they live by allying himself with Hitler when he invades France

    Arnaud translates and documents the chronicle but thinks the count is crazy to think that the Holy Grail exists. The count relies on studies done by a German, Otto Rahn who published "Crusades against the Holy Grail, The tragedy of Catars"

    Arnaud was help by a priest, Ignacio Aguirre. Aguirre meets the count and infiltrates in his castle, as part of his duties of Vatican espionage

    Arnaud's wife and son are Jewish. As things get nasty, he succeeds in sending his son David to Palestine, but tragedy strikes in Berlin. His wife, Miriam's relatives disappear after their store is bombed. Arnaud can't prevent Miriam from going to Berlin to search for her disappeared relatives. Miriam disappears also, and the poor professor spends most of WWII searching for her in Germany, to no avail. He is helped by Inge, a communist, who is untouchable because her parents are high ranking Nazis.

    At the end of WWII, we find out what has happened to all of the professors relatives. Along with the other six million innocent lives, they were gassed, tortured, and killed.

    Meanwhile David, the professors son befriends a young Palestinian, Hamza. They become friends and are excited because there are talks that the British may give both Jewish and Palestinian two states to share in Palestine.

    Unfortunately, religious fervor gets the best of the situation and both David and Hamza are recruited by their respective clans to fight to the death for Palestine. At one point they are in front of each other and even though Hamza can't kill his old friend, Davis d

    I have read this book in detail, not once, but several times. It is phenomenal. Each of the three parts is essential to the whole, and anyone who believes that the first part is merely background misses the point. I have also read her novel, La hermandad de la sábana santa, which was also exceptional! I highly recommend it to anyone. It deals with the complexities and intricacies of religious intolerance traced from the Middle Ages to the present day! It paints competing groups equally, there are good and bad individuals among the Cathars, the Catholics, the Germans, the Jews, the Palestinians, etc.

    I would give this 2 1/2 stars, because I did finish it, but it was a silly book. The first nearly 400 pages are background, that could have been covered as the actual action went along. They are nearly irrelevant to what is the real story. Then the real story was so incredibly ridiculous. The idea that some fanatics who blow up 3 holy places would start a war that all Muslims would fight, taking over the world. The premise is nonsense. It supposes that all Muslims are fanatics. It supposes that we are not essentially a civilized, modern world, and we will drop everything to fight in the streets. It was just too preposterous.
