Sacred art and secret societies are among the numerous controversial topics exposed in the best-selling book and popular movie. The questions raised in this novel still stimulate debate and disagreement among readers and experts. Art critics and historians dismiss the author’s claims of heretical clues concealed in the art of Leonardo da Vinci, but religious scholars present evidence, discovered in the Nag Hammadi scriptures, that those problematic theories could perhaps be verified. Form your own opinion. Might a few of the long-held tenets of the Christian Church be wrong?
