Questions Concerning "The Da Vinci Code"

Editor's Note:

Dr. Scott Hahn and The St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology have received numerous requests for comment on the best-selling novel, The Da Vinci Code.

The short answer is this: The novel - which claims that Jesus was secretly married to Mary Magdalene and that basic Christian beliefs were "made up" by the ancient Church -advances a series of fraudulent claims and accusations about the Catholic Church.

We recommend the following resources for Catholics interested in learning the truth about The Da Vinci Code:

- "Cracking the Anti-Catholic Code"
An excellent response by Carl Olson, published in Envoy magazine.
Part 2.

- Prelature of Opus Dei 
Includes a fine collection of reviews and articles detailing the many inaccuracies and distortions of the book.
