Da Vinci Code Deception
Confronts Novelists Disturbing Claims About Jesus Christ, Dan Brown is not an archeologist, historian, or theologian, so his bestselling fiction thriller, The Da Vinci Code, should have been nothing more than an entertaining product of his fanciful imagination. What ignited worldwide controversy, though, was the book‘s enigmatic opening statement—―FACT: All descriptions of artwork, architecture, documents, and secret rituals in the novel are accurate.
Although fiction authors have frequently referenced actual events, places, and people, There has always been an understanding with the reading public that although certain aspects of the work are indeed factual, not everything is true. Brown‘s claim is confusing. He is a man with limited academic credentials—a BA from Amherst College—yet in one sentence he claims to know more about what happened over the past 2000 years than every recognized scholar in history.
This documentary answers all the lingering questions and exposes all of the inaccuracies and deceptions of Brown‘s novel—through interviews with many of the world‘s leading experts in theology, archeology, art history, philosophy, and science.
