* SeriousBusiness: The abbey is hosting a council made up of various factions of the Dominican and Franciscan Orders to debate the burning issue: ''Did {{Jesus}} own his own clothes?'' In the film, this is used for comedy; in the book it is always clear that they are really discussing the church's approach to poverty and wealth, and that the debate is therefore highly political and momentous. Other monks spend a great deal of time arguing over the question of ''Did {{Jesus}} ever laugh?''

* BigBadEnsemble: The SerialKiller[[spoiler: Jorges]] who causes the whole book's manhunt and the sinister Inquisitor Bernando Gui who doesn't really contribute anything to the manhunt other than providing scapegoats and unlike the killer he murders in official and socially acceptable ways, so he doesn't need to hide both in-universe and as far as spoilers are concerned.

* RansackedRoom: The herbalist discovers the book and goes to tell William of Baskerville, who tells him to lock himself in his room and let no-one in until he arrives (Baskerville is held up by the theological debate). On returning to his apothecary, he shocked to find the place ransacked. He bolts the door and quickly goes to check the book is still there. It is -- lying on the floor under a table. The herbalist is revealed...until he sees a hooded figure step out from behind a curtain and walk toward him...
