The Holy Grail?

"Mary Magdalene became secretly known by many pseudonyms - the Chalice, the Holy Grail..."
Sir Leigh Teabing, The Da Vinci Code p.254

The Holy Grail?

Consider This: Before the twelfth century, there were no legends about the grail; by the thirteenth century the tale had become intertwined with Arthurian legends. The characters from Chretien's story developed into supposed historical figures from the Gospels, and the grail had become the Holy Grail.

"The word Sangreal derives from San Greal - or Holy Grail. But in the most ancient form, the word Sangreal was divided in a different spot.. Sang Real .. literally mean[ing] Royal Blood."
Sir Leigh Teabing, The Da Vinci Code p.250

The Holy Grail?

Consider This: There is no historical evidence to connect the ancient female symbol of the chalice to the Holy Grail, since the grail's concept can only be traced back as far as the twelfth century. The re-division of the word Sangreal into Sang Real or Royal Blood appears to be completely manufactured.

"The Last Supper practically shouts at the viewer that Jesus and Magdalene were a pair."
Sir Leigh Teabing, The Da Vinci Code p.244

The Holy Grail?

Consider This: The concept that the Last Supper shows Mary Magdalene is rejected by art historians. Leonardo's portrayal of men in a soft, almost effeminate way is well known and is considered a typical representation of young men for that time period.

"All descriptions of artwork, architecture, documents, and secret rituals in the novel are accurate"
Dan Brown, The Da Vinci Code

The Holy Grail?

Consider This: Author Dan Brown's research into the various historical references are deeply flawed - to the extent that all major points made in the book must be viewed with suspicion.
