The Words of Fire

"When men have to die for their ideas, something new is about to begin." With a combination of intrigue and historical rigor, The Words of Fire takes readers back to an historical moment when the printed word could be the most transformative weapon.

The year 1557. Fray Daniel de Ecija is a novice of the Hieronymite Monastery of San Isidoro del Campo, who is fascinated by the new ideas being introduced by his friend Casiodoro de Reina. Seville seems to be revolutionized by the riches coming from America and the ideas from Germany. The printing press has managed to spread the teachings of Luther and Erasmus throughout Europe, but the Inquisition is lurking. The monks are warned of an imminent raid and escape to Cadiz to find a ship to take them to Italy.

The Inquisition sends two monks after the "heretical" monks who will try to bring them back to Spain to be judged and burned at the stake. While Daniel of Ecija and his companions flee through Europe, Casiodoro de Reina starts to develop the idea of translating the Bible into Spanish, but Philip II's spies are everywhere and are very interested in the book not being published.

"There was a time when books could change the world, shake up the strongest powers, and change history forever."
