The Rough Guide To The Da Vinci Code

Authors: Michael Haag, Veronica Haag, James McConnachie

Publisher: Penguin Books (2004)

Everyone loves a conspiracy' THE DA VINCI CODE Dan Browns novel The Da Vinci Code is a modern quest for the Holy Grail that in medieval legend was the chalice from which Jesus drank at the Last Supper. But in The Da Vinci Code the Holy Grail is not a physical object, rather it is a two-thousand-year-old secret that goes to the very heart of Christian belief. The novel argues that our modern understanding of history is based upon the deliberate suppression of an ancient truth, and it challenges the assumptions underlying Western civilisation. The Da Vinci Code is a thriller - and a phenomenon with more than 10 million copies in print and is written as a fictional entertainment. But Dan Brown asserts that it has a basis in fact, and the backdrop to his novel touches upon matters of serious debate among scholars at leading universities and in books issuing from the presses of Cambridge, Oxford, Yale, Harvard, Princeton and others. Indeed, his book returns us to matters that were the subject of impassioned controversy in early Christian times. Readers want to know how much of what Dan Brown writes is fiction and how much is really true. The Rough Guide to The Da Vinci Code examines his arguments and his sources, and provides the historical, cultural and religious background material to enable you to make up your own mind, or take your own research further.

Author: Carlos Castaneda

This is his story, a hauntingly beautiful and deeply inspiring journey of awakening within Chakpori Lamasery, the temple of Tibetan medicine. It is a moving tale of passage through the mystic arts of astral projection, crystal gazing, aura deciphering, meditation, and more, a spiritual guide of enlightenment and discovery through the opening of the all-powerful, the all-knowing . . .
