The Da Vinci Code and the Secrets of the Temple : The Master of TheTemple Paperback
The Temple Church in London, the historic spiritual home of the Knights Templar, and the final resting place of crusading knights, features large in Dan Brown's 'Da Vinci Code'.
Every Friday, the Master of the Temple Church, Robin Griffith Jones gives a talk to up to 200 tourists on the Da Vinci trail.
This popular and accessible book is based on this weekly talk.
It begins by setting out Dan Brown's understanding of Christianity and the role of the Church, which are vastly different from the Church's understanding of these things, and then explores how much of Dan Brown's version is true, how much is plausible and how much is fanciful.
Covering all the main elements of the book - the Priory of Sion, Opus Dei, the Knight Templar, Leonardo's 'Last Supper', Jesus, Mary Magdalene and more, this is an illuminating companion that sets the record straight.
