Amazon.com description: Product Description:
Felipe II, el “Defensor de la Fe”, es el soberano más poderoso del orbe. Largos años ha luchado contra judíos, musulmanes y protestantes, y sus súbditos han sufrido excesivos impuestos, pestes, intolerancia… Su reinado agoniza en tanto nace un mundo diferente: los castillos son sustituidos por las ciudades, los campesinos por los villanos, los príncipes y reyes por los burgueses; falsos profetas dominan los caminos y hablan de un renacimiento. Felipe está cansado y enfermo; el arrepentimiento de sus excesos lo lleva a recluirse al lugar que ha mandado construir para ser su última morada: el Escorial. Entonces aparecen tres jóvenes misteriosos con una cruz encarnada en sus espaldas; uno de ellos habla de un mundo nuevo, un Edén con bellas ciudades, volcanes y pirámides, donde presiden la crueldad, el dolor y la muerte junto a fantásticos seres sobrenaturales como la señora de las mariposas. El Defensor de la Fe no puede descansar aún: está obligado a llevar la cruz a esos infieles… ¿podrá gobernar, al fin, un mundo justo y libre? ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Phillip II of Spain, the “Defender of the Faith,” is tired and ill. Years of fighting the infidel, excessive takes and the plague have taken a toll on his subjects. At a time where castles are giving way to cities, Phillip seeks refuge in the place he had built to become his final dwelling: the Escorial. Suddenly three mysterious men bearing a cross come to him; one talks about a new world, a paradise of cities, volcanoes and pyramids, where cruelty, pain, and death rule—and the Defender of Faith discovers the time to rest has not come yet…
