A historical novel set in first century Corinth that imagines the transformation from the Greek to the Christian. Los milagros del vino recreates a fascinating world at a time when the single most important shift in Western thought was about to take place. In a decadent Greece under the rule of the Roman Empire, the priest Podalirio, who has dedicated his whole life to the cult of the god Asclepius, finds himself growing more and more disenchanted with the gods. Confronted with suffering, sickness and death, he is unable to fill his emptiness until one day he hears a story that will change his life forever, a message of trust in the future.
Sánchez Adalid, a hugely bestselling author, this time turns his attention to an exciting period of our culture, including touches of humour and historical curiosities.
Through a journey in time, he imagines an almost unexplored period in fi ction: the years after Christ’s death.
