Marcellus, a young Roman Tribune, reluctantly plays the part of executioner, and the deed leaves its mark on him. The instrument which changes his life is the robe of the dead Jesus, which is gambled for by the soldiers at the foot of the cross. He then sets forth on a quest to find the truth about the Nazarene's robe, a quest that reaches to the very roots and heart of Christianity. "; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" Tall; 472 pages
