This is a great combination of a suspense-filled mystery and an academic work on the esoteria of Christianity. Professor Robert Langdon, expert on symbology, is on a lecture tour of Europe when he gets caught up in a series of murders in Paris. He hooks up with Sophie Neveu, an expert cryptographer, to decipher a fascinating series of puzzles that lead them toward that greatest of all treasures, the Holy Grail. Along the way, you will learn much about the symbolism of art. Dan Brown presents a plethora of information on secret societies, both Christian and otherwise. The Da Vinci Code is a fast and fun read that will pique your curiosity about art, history, and religion. I'd be interested to hear if anyone has comments about the accuracy of the historical information presented.
