Reading - The Name of the Rose

I'd forgotten how much of this book makes utterly no sense to me. I'm mired in the part where all the political shinnanigans are going on . You know. Where one order of monks is trying to curtail the power and influence of another, where blood is actually shed and the inquisition is used to aggregate and/or limit power of one faction against another.

Not sure how much longer I'll read this book if this keeps up.

Yes, I know it is necessary for the plot, but honestly, since i have no clue regarding the different monastic traditions it all sounds just like politics as usual, and about as meaningful.
