The Da Vinci Code
(Dan Brown)

The Da Vinci Code

Robert Langdon, an Indiana-Jones type character, is woken up in the night repetitively and sent on an adventure in search of a murderer, and eventually the real chalice of the Last Supper. When the curator of Paris' Louvre museum is murdered in a strange way, the solution to the case and the analysis of the mysterious circumstances and implications of the death rest in the hands of Robert, who is helped by cryptologist Sophie Neveu, the curator?s granddaughter. Together they go about deciphering the extraordinary clues that her grandfather left behind, discovering that he was the leader of an ancient secret society, whose significant members included Boticelli, Gallileo, Newton and Leonardo Da Vinci. It is using these works and the work of Da Vinci that the duo discover the ?code? that will reveal the secret that the mysterious society kept hidden for centuries.
The clues take them through England, France and beyond. Together they learn about Templars, the symbolic clues found in many of the most valuable works of art in the world, including the Mona Lisa and The Last Supper; the secret codes in architectural works such as the Santa Suplice church in Paris, the Temple church in London and the Rosslyn belfry in Scotland; and the reason the Catholic Church is so afraid of these secrets being revealed. Eventually, Robert and Sophie find out who committed the murder(s) and why, and the reason explains the religious fervour and public acclamation for the novel.

The big revelation in the story is how the church has suppressed the ?truth? that Jesus was married the Mary Magdalene, (who is the real ?chalice? in the Last Supper given that she carried the blood of Jesus in her womb) and that she gave birth to a line of blood that still exists today. The novel also mentions, very subtley, that the real Messiah was actually John the Baptist, not Jesus, and that Jesus didn't die but survived the cruxifiction and ordeals to appear miraculously to his wife Mary Magdalene, three days later, before the disciples saw him. The Templars kept all of this a secret until their collapse on Friday 13th October 1307, when the information was passed on to the Priory of Zion , and finally to Da Vinci who incorporated the clues in his art.
The aim of the author is not to undermine the Church's or Jesus' message, but to offer a different perspective of Jesus as a real human being living during a time when the idea of a single Jewish man was inconceivable. These theories are not new. At the beginning of the 80s, the book Holy Grail, Holy Blood generated the same fervour, however it did not reach worldwide scale, probably because it was a tedious read. In reality, the historian of the book, Teabing, is an anagram of one of the authors of Holy Grail, Holy Blood - Baigent. Most of Dan Brown's ideas come from this book, and also from The Woman with the Alabaster Jar (the story of Mary Magdalene) written by Margaret Starbird. Brown also mentions the Martin Scorsese film The Last Temp.
