Korte samenvatting
Dan Brown says that the historical information in his book is all actually accurate. But is this really true? Bart D. Ehrman thinks not, he wants to show that Brown is wrong.

Bart D. Ehrman shows in his informative book, that The Da Vinci Code is filled with numerous historical mistakes. Was Jesus Christ married to Mary Magdalene? Did the church suppress Gospels that told the secret of their marriage? And many more questions like these. Bart Ehrman debunks all of these questions. But the book is not only a long list of Brown’s mistakes. Throughout Ehrman offers a wealth of fascinating background information, which is all historically accurate on early Christianity. He describes the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls (not Christian in content, contrary to The Da Vinci Code), outlines in simple term how scholars of early Christianity determine which sources are most reliable. He also explores the many other Gospels that have been found in the last half century.
