Secret of the Code by Dan Burnstein (Vanguard Press)

Secrets of the Code is a sweeping tour, guided by world-renowned experts, through the provocative ideas raised in the bestselling novel and block buster film. This new and updated paperback edition features exciting new material, including a mini-biography of novelist Dan Brown, commentaries on modern-day Holy Grail hunters, The Da Vinci Code and Jewish culture, lost Leonardo paintings, predictions about Dan Brown’s next novel, and much, much more. And the best of the earlier edition remains: the thorough exploration of the religious, historic, artistic, and scientific questions that emerge in the novel. It features interviews and commentary by renowned scholars, theologians, scientists and historians on such topics as the true identity of Mary Magdalene and feminine influences in the early days of Christianity, the Gnostic Gospels and other alternative scriptures, the meaning of the search for the Holy Grail in history, the facts concerning the secret societies discussed in The Da Vinci Code from the Priory of Sion to Opus Dei, and much more.
