EUROPEAN FICTION BROTHER JACOB By Henrik Stangerup. The final novel in the Danish writer Henrik Stangerup's trilogy of European historical fiction, "Brother Jacob" may be his best and most profound. Though studded with bloody episodes of the primitive, as befits its 16th-century setting, the drama, as energetically translated by Anne Born, turns on the commitments and renunciations of men and women for whom philosophy equals destiny. The title character, a member of the Danish royal family, joins the Franciscans just as Renaissance turns to Reformation.

A Denmark best-seller features a real-life human experience of God in history as Brother Jacob flees to Mexico in search of his own Utopia, establishes hospitals, and champions the rights of the Amerindians before his faith is put to a final test.
