Overview

The truth behind a work of fiction that incited a movement to disprove it.

As controversial as it was popular, The Da Vinci Code sparked an intrigue that spanned religious, cultural, mathematical and literary domains.

Was Jesus married? Did Leonardo da Vinci bury “clues” to the truth of the bloodline in his art? Is there a secret organization that protects the whereabouts of the Holy Grail?

Proving that a number of the novel’s most radical claims are historically sound, and exposing the spurious nature of others, Sangeet Duchane compares the early and modern Church, analyzes Dan Brown’s use of symbols, explores origins of the Grail myth, and ends with a tour through the significant locales of the novel as well as a reflection on the reasons it has touched so many and the meaning of modern myth.

    Great detail

    This book goes into great detail about the movie and about the history and different perspectives of Christ and the origin or Christianity. It is unbiased and only offers facts.

    Best of the DaVinci Code books

    I've read three of the many books out there looking at the religious arguments in the Davinci Code, and this one is by far the best, presenting the evidence on both sides of each issue, and concluding only what can be concluded. The production of the book is also by far the most beuatiful , with its great illustrations

    Finally some factual information

    This book was extremely well written. The documentation was first class, and the plates of the various paintings, etc. were superb. I am impressed with your research and your interpretation. It was organized well, and the information was laid out in such a way as to lead the reader into each topic. Given all the books on the topic, I was elated to find this one that was not hype, but based in fact. Thank you and congradulations!

    The Inside Scoop

    Myth abounds in the sacrosanct world of Christianity. This is the work of a scholar who brings critical impartial examination to the work of Dan Brown's best seller. Much of what his book presents as factual and documented is carefully researched and laid bare to the truth of historical records. Very readable with little opiniation. Great gift idea.

    The Code Unvailed

    Nobody can read the DaVinci Code by Dan Brown without questioning the authority and infallibility of the white male domination of the Catholic Church. Sangeet Duchane has indeed gone'Beyond The DaVinci Code' with her 'Unauthorized Guide'. This is not only a beautiful art book with exquisite color illustrations on every page but also an in depth analysis of The Magdalana Mythologies evolving over the last 2000 years. She writes with enjoyeable clarity about complex ideas and significant historical events with unusual style and scholastic dexterity. She presents reviews from other scholars about the lives written about Jesus, Mary and his disciples without dogma or sensational conclusions. She provides a fantastic bibliography and endnotes worthy of any Theologist without being condescending to the common reader of non-fiction. I like the way the author highlights female Saints and gives women proper respect for their contributions through centuries of domination and subserviance in the traditional church. Also, she gives the reader many facts about Leonardo's life and questions the very foundation of Browns mystery. The Book is organized with an effective outline in brief Chapters moving from The of Jesus to the developmen of The Holy Grail movements to the modern era. I enjoyed how the legends mixed with facts in the history Western Civilization. Lastly,I believe the popularity of code books are enjoyed by many as metaphore to be used further study and spiritual meaning in modern times. I plan to give this book to all female friends and family at Christmas. Michael E. Cull, MS Adjunct Instructor Sociology UAA Matsu College Palmer Alaska
