Overview

Da Vinci Code is a modern-day publishing phenomenon. With millions of copies in print, it is the most popular adult novel of the 21st Century. In an introductory note, author Dan Brown tells us that “all descriptions of documents and secret rituals . . . are accurate.” But are they? Many scholars and theologians have attacked the book and the “facts” on which it is based. Some claim that Brown is anti-Catholic. Book clubs, reading groups, dedicated web-sites and countless reviews and articles in magazines and newspapers worldwide have fueled the fire, making Da Vinci Code not only the most successful book of its kind ever, but also the most controversial.

Now Martin Lunn, an expert historian, reveals the truth behind Dan Brown’s research. The reality of Catholic offshoot Opus Dei . . . the hard facts about the bloodline of Christ and King David . . . the origins of the Knights Templar and the infamous Priory of Sion . . . the secrets of Temple Church and Rosslyn Cathedral . . . the real Saunière . . . the mysteries of Rennes-le-Château and much more.

Da Vinci Code Decoded also provides an exhaustive tour of the locations visited by the novel’s characters: The Louvre Museum, l’Eglise de Saint-Sulpice and Rue Haxo in Paris; Château Villette; Temple Church; Westminster Abbey; Newton’s tomb; Chapter House; St. Faith’s Chapel; Rosslyn Chapel and many others.

Martin Lunn is a recognized expert in the Davidic bloodline and other issues presented in Da Vinci Code. He has a masters degree in history and an extensive background in journalism. He has lived throughout the Far and Middle East, the US and several countries in Europe, currently residing in Barcelona. He is also Grand Master of the Dragon Society, founded originally in 1408 by King Sigismund of Hungary.

I knew a lot of the statements about Christainity in The Da Vinci Code were false, and I was interested in learning how many of the statements about symbolism and the Priory of Sion were based on truth. Unfortunately, this was not the book. It struck me as a quickly written book, even before I read a scholarly book about Christainity. The fact that it took all of five pages to state that of course Jesus was married was a big clue. The evidence boiled down to Jesus was married because otherwise the Bible would have stated he was not married. That is a clue as to the lack of scholarly research behind this book. A religious textbook written by a scholar at Notre Dame University spent approximately 30 pages examining this question and concluded that the great weight of the evidence is that Jesus was not married. Likewise, this book treated the Priory of Sion as a real organization without question. A Dateline NBC report in 2005 exposed that fallacy.

I'm a Da Vinci Code book reader looking for as much information as possible to find my opinion on the matter. I was raised a Christian, know the bible fairly well and found myself intrigued and wanting after reading the Da Vinci Code. This book had been a great beginning for me on my journey to some kind of truth. The ideas presented in Dan Brown's books have impacted me and this book answers alot of the detail oriented questions.
