Polelle offers a fast-paced, sometimes dizzying novel full of intrigue and action. A little too much, especially in the first half, where the number of characters and situations can leave more than one out of the game and make them give up before the end. However, it is worth carrying on. There is no shortage of clichés about Rome, Italy, Fascism, Nazism, the Church, the Vatican, la mamma... The characters are a little flat, as Polelle puts all his heart into a plot that he twists to fit a classical structure that is at times too predictable. Nevertheless, The Mithras Conspiracy is a good action book. Polelle's effort to do his homework and talk about Mithras properly is appreciated. The excesses of the genre can be forgiven, not least because Polelle is one of the few authors who have dared to tackle the subject with a good and sometimes remarkable result.
Followers of a revived version of Mithraism in contemporary Italy threaten to overthrow the government and destroy the Vatican. Rome is in chaos.

The video and the description are about the Symphorus mithraeum (IV).
