Thirteenth-century Europe and young monk, Michael Scot, has been asked by the Holy Roman Emperor to translate the works of Aristotle and recover his lost knowledge.
Scot sets to his task, travelling from the Emperors Italian court to the translation schools of Toledo and from there to the Moorish library of Córdoba. But when the Pope deems the translations heretical Scot refuses to desist. Thus begins a battle for power between Church and State – one that shaped how we view the world today.
