The Book of the Week
by Neal Stephenson
Fraa Erasmas is a young avout living in a sanctuary for mathematicians, scientists, and philosophers, protected from the corrupting influences of the outside "secular" world. Three times during history's darkest epochs, violence born of superstition and ignorance has invaded and devastated the cloistered mathic community. But Erasmas has no fear of the outside, for the last of the terrible times was long, long ago...
Yet out of the blue, one by one, Erasmas and his colleagues, teachers, and friends are summoned forth in hopes of warding off global disaster. Burdened with a staggering responsibility, Erasmas finds himself a major player in a drama that will determine the future of his world.
