The Da Vinci Code
by Forrest Carter

An exciting mystery story of competing searchers for the Holy Grail in modern-day Europe. A page-turner. Anti-Roman Catholic. Pro-female worship and pagan. Full of alleged facts showing that throughout European history the myth has been kept alive by secret societies who worshipped Mary Magdeline as the wife of Jesus. An organization called Opus Dei with headquarters at 243 Lexington Avenue in NYC is portrayed as a Vatican prelature whose top Bishop is seeking the Holy Grail to protect the Church from its secrets and to give himself more power within the organization. The Priory of Sion (a secret society founded in 1099) is depicted as possessors of the Holy Grail who will reveal its contents when the time is right.
