In 1517, Martin Luther nails his ninety-five theses to the door of Wittenburg Cathedral, and a dance of death begins between a radical Anabaptist with many names and a loyal papal spy known mysteriously as "Q." In this brilliantly conceived literary thriller set in the chaos of the Reformation-an age devastated by wars of religion-a young theology student adopts the cause of heretics and the disinherited and finds himself pursued by a relentless papal informer and heretic hunter. What begins as a personal struggle to reveal each other's identity becomes a mission that can only end in death.… (més)

Q de Wu Ming (1999)

    Obra negra de Marguerite Yourcenar (bibliopolitan)
  2. 00
    The Relic Master de Christopher Buckley (M_Clark)
    M_Clark: Since there are not that many novels set in the Reformation, I thought readers of "Q" might enjoy The Relic Master which is set at the same time. In contrast to "Q" it is written in a much more straight-forward style and is actually funny in spots.

    Altai de Wu Ming (Panairjdde)
    Panairjdde: Altai is the sequel, sort of, set several years later with another main character.
  5. 01
    Imprimatur de Rita Monaldi (Panairjdde)
    Panairjdde: I enjoyed the same atmosphere, even if the setting and the mechanism of the plot is different
  6. 01
    Narziss i Goldmund de Hermann Hesse (bookmomo)
    bookmomo: Same sense of place, same detailed descriptions of nature and surviving in harsh nature. It takes place in roughly the same area, only earlier in time.
  7. 01
    Memoirs of a Gnostic Dwarf de David Madsen (Panairjdde)
    Panairjdde: The plot is similar (a gnostic dwarf at the service of a Roman Catholic cardinal at the beginning of the XVIth century), but more lighthearthed and less historically researched

This was touted somewhere as a cross between a Le Carré spy novel and The Name of the Rose, I don't think it reaches the heights of either. By the time the central question of the novel heats up, it's practically over, and the main character's travels across the religious wars of Europe just aren't that interesting. ( )

I smile. No plan can take everything into account. Other people will raise their heads, others will desert. Time will go on spreading victory and defeat among those who pursue struggle.


There is a scene in Alan Bennett's History Boys where the instructor tells his students, if you want to know about Stalin you should study Henry VIII. I felt similar illustrations throughout this sprawling epic. Recurring tensions and responses proliferate through history. Well over a month was spent with Q, a month occupied otherwise by the World Cup and numerous intrigues into the depths of Derrida and Foucault. The baggy novel concerns millenarianism but in the befogged era of the religious wars and the Reformation. Street Fighting Men battle princes and papal guards, while revolutions orange and velvet give way to failed Springs and betrayed Thaws. The narrative as such concerns two men, equally unknown with protean noms-de-guerre: they act observe and operate for the opposing forces in this weird rethink of early modernity.

Luther Blissett is the pseudonym for four politically radical Italian novelists who will later in another incarnation be known as Wu Ming. This creative endeavor finds its historical subject in a most messy marriage, one that gleams even as it oozes.

After news articles about people appearing at Trump rallies with T-Shirts for QAnon, I was curious to learn what this "Q" was all about and found a free copy for download on the internet. The book was nothing like I expected.

The main story concerns a German who manages to appear at many of the key bloody events of the Reformation like the Peasants War, Münster, etc. His story interests with that of "Q" who is working for the Inquisition as an agent provocateur stirring up trouble among those in the Reformation. This agent is regularly reporting back to his "master" at the Inquisition with letters signed only "Q". These letters are supposedly what attracted today's right-wing conspiracy theorists to the idea of QAnon although I find their attraction still very puzzling.

The book itself is somewhat difficult to follow and, in order to enjoy it, requires some level of knowledge of the Reformation. It is also difficult to follow the various characters and the storyline. I did not find it particularly well written.

That said, reading a novel about the Reformation brings the time period to life in a way that a normal history book does not. It also leaves you thinking about the events in the book. ( )

il lato avventuroso della Riforma protestante. (Avreste mai detto che ne aveva uno?) ( )

This is a very rich, dense book. I spent so long reading it only because every page, EVERY page, required some looking into Wikipedia for information on a historical even or personage or item. This rather added to my enjoyment instead of detracting. It is a gripping story to follow and I learned much in the process. ( )

Set Les Miserables in Reformation Europe, with Javert reporting to an evil cardinal instead of the prefect of police, and you’ll have something of this book.

Rich religious history is turned into bloated, tedious fiction in this Reformation-age epic produced by four anonymous writers lurking behind a pseudonym.
