This site deals with the historicity of Dan Brown’s Da Vinci Code, due to hit the cinema in May. Sony is apparently sponsoring the site as they prepare to release Ron Howard’s movie adaptation – and want to mitigate the Catholic and Evangelical backlash from this anti-Catholic, anti-Christian book and movie.
The book has sold 36 million copies and though it may be a good yarn, it is historical (and somewhat hysterical) nonsense. [HT: Hugh Hewitt]
Poor Rich Dan Brown has some people who’d like a piece of the action – people who claim he "stole" some of the material from their book, The Holy Blood, the Holy Grail.
