* BlindWithoutEm: Downplayed: While William can see perfectly well without his spectacles, he is unable to read small text without them. This costs him precious time that results in ever more murders.

* DeliberateValuesDissonance: Religious wars declared over whether or not the clergy should be poor, homosexuality being a crime punishable by death, treating other religions (and diferent subsets of the same religion) with unmasked contempt... Welcome to medieval Europe.



* EekAMouse: The monks laugh when Berenger does the 'jump on on the chair' version.

* InMyLanguageThatSoundsLike: Adso recounts explaining to a German noble that Italians go through the forest with pigs looking for "tartufo" (truffles), which they dig up and eat. The German heard the keyword as "der Teufel" (the Devil) and gave Adso a very strange look after crossing himself. They both had a good laugh about it afterwards.

* NotMyProblem: Another monk is murdered ''after'' Bernard Gui tortures a false confession out of Remigio. He declares that it's not his job to keep order in the monastery and he already did what he came here to do.


Added DiffLines:

* SexyPriest: The girl throws herself at Adso muttering a language he only partly understands, but the gist is "You are young, and handsome" (given that she had to sleep with two remarkably old and/or ugly monks for sustenance). Adso also mentions receiving love letters from an older monk.

* BlackAndWhiteInsanity: A caliph is mentioned as having ordered a library burned because either they said what was in the Quran and therefore redundant, or did ''not'' say what was in the Quran and thus heretical.

* MedievalMorons: William [[MarySue himself]] and the sensible [[TheWatson Adso]] make everyone else look fanatical or dumb, at least in the movie. In the novel, many people show a great deal of scholarly knowledge and expertise, but William is about the only one who can escape beyond the stagnated and fundamentalist nature of medieval learning.

* 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?''
