Summa Elvetica

Summa Elvetica by Theodore Beale

Action!  Adventures!  Elves!  A Roman empire look-alike!  Sorcery and arson!  All driven by the burning question:  do elves have souls?

Marcus Valerian is sent as part of a mission to the kingdom of the elves.  Nominally, this is to conclude the peace of a war that has not been fought in decades.  In actuality, it is to determine whether elves have souls.  A judgment of immense political significance as well as theological.  Hence the adventures.
