Salvatore, the "Babel Man"

Picture: From the movie "The Name of the Rose"

"Watch out for the dracul who cometh in futurum to gnaw on your anima!" 
---Salvatore, in the 1980 movie "The Name of the Rose"

When asked by Adso about what language Salvatore was speaking, William of Baskerville, the prudent master and admirer of Aristotle, answered that he was speaking all languages, and none. Indeed, Salvatore is a "Babel man".
