The name of the rose

Umberto Eco!

Actually the rose is quite emblematic of Christianity as a whole. Dante has God being enclosed in a rose in Paradisio. Of course the connection with the rose and Mary is evident. Christianity really doesn't treat women very well, but, ultimately, all their symbolism is caught up in the feminine.

Something Freudian going on there.
