He smiled, affectionately, but sadly, I thought. ” “Yes, Dracula. ” “That’s the one—or one of them. They were an ancient family before their most unpleasant member came to power. Did you look him up on your way out of the library? Yes? A bad sign. When my book appeared so oddly, I looked up the word itself, that afternoon—the name, as well as Transylvania, Wallachia, and the Carpathians. ” I wondered if this might be a veiled compliment—Rossi liked his students working at a high pitch—but I let it pass, afraid to interrupt his story with extraneous comment.
So, the Carpathians. That’s always been a mystical spot for historians. One of Occam’s students traveled there—by donkey, I suppose—and produced out of his experiences a funny little thing called Philosophie of the Aweful. Of course, the basic story of Dracula has been hashed over many times and doesn’t yield much to exploration. There’s the Wallachian prince, a fifteenth-century ruler, hated by the Ottoman Empire and his own people—both. Really among the nastiest of all medieval European tyrants.
The name actually came from the Latin root for dragon or devil, the honorary title of Vlad Tepes—the “Impaler”—of Wallachia, a feudal lord in the Carpathians who tormented his subjects and prisoners of war in unbelievably cruel ways. I was studying trade in seventeenth-century Amsterdam, so I didn’t see any reason for a book on this subject to be tucked in among mine, and I decided it must have been left there accidentally, perhaps by someone who was working on the history of Central Europe, or on feudal symbols.
