Templar Lore

Cracking The Da Vinci Code – Simon Cox

The huge success of Dan Brown’s “The Da Vinci Code” will come as no surprise to anyone whose quest has taken them to study the events surrounding the enigma of Berenger Sauniere and Rennes-le-Chateau. Although a work of fiction, the book has served to bring to the public arena the issue of the Magdalene Deception perpetrated by the Catholic Church. Many other themes are woven into the fabric of the story that will be familiar to any visitor to this website genuinely interested in its content.

Simon Cox, the editor-in-chief of Phenomena a magazine dedicated to challenging accepted dogma, has produced one of the many books spawned from the Da Vinci Code’s success, attempting to enlighten any interested party as to the facts behind the fiction.

Cox’s book is laid out alphabetically (it starts with “Adoration of the Magi” and ends with “Vitruvian Man” with roughly a page or two on each subject in between) and although a little short on really meaty detail it does serve as a good reference source and contains an extensive bibliography for further reading.

We’d probably recommend reading the Da Vinci Code first though.
