Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the team that brought you the New York Times bestselling Secrets Of The Code: The Unauthorized Guide to the Mysteries Behind The Da Vinci Code, comes the first literary companion to Dan Brown's bestselling novel, Angels & Demons.

Secrets Of Angels & Demons provides the curious reader with concise, authoritative explorations of the major themes that help propel the plot of Angels & Demons. Featuring extracts, interviews, and specially commissioned commentary by world-renowned scholars, Secrets Of Angels & Demons presents a wealth of information on the vast range of subjects covered in the novel.

Taking the same comprehensive, detailed approach as Secrets Of The Code, Secrets Of Angels & Demons delves into and deconstructs the provocative issues raised in the novel — the existence and scope of the Illuminati and their relationship to other 'Secret Societies' (the Priory of Sion, the Freemasons, Opus Dei, etc.), the ongoing debate between Science and Religion, the history and practices of the Vatican, pagan symbolism and its place within the Church.

Synopsis:

Set against the backdrop of beautiful Baroque Rome, Secrets of Angels & Demons takes you inside the Vatican to see how the process of conclave and papal selection really works — and who may be elected the next time white smoke is seen at the Vatican.

Readers will explore the world of Bernini, master artist of the Baroque era, and the secret meanings behind his symbolism....What really happened in the trial of Galileo....The impact of the Illuminati, the Freemasons, and other secret societies on European and American history....The real state if the art antimatter technology....The centuries-old debate between science and religion.

Building on the model they created for Secrets of the Code: The Unauthorized Guide to the Mysteries Behind The Da Vinci Code, editors Dan Burstein and Arne de Keijzer now take readers on an extended tour of the thought-provoking ideas infusing Dab Brown's thriller, Angels and Demons.

Millions of readers want to separate fact from fiction in these books. The "Secrets" series teases apart the real and the imagined within the historical labyrinth of conspiracies, cover-ups, messages encoded in famous artworks, secrets societies, and mystical knowledge.

Secrets of Angels & Demons: The Unauthorized Guide to the Bestselling Novel is must reading for anyone fascinated with Dan Brown's historical mysteries — Angels & Demons and The Da Vinci Code.

Here are world-class historians, theologians, philosophers, scientists, art historians, technologists, symbologists, occultists, linguists, and writers and thinkers of all types discussing and debating the issues triggered by Dan Brown's murder mystery. Burstein and de Keijzer have drawn together this authoritative group of experts to penetrate and explore Angels & Demons, and to begin an exciting, engaging conversation for and with the millions who have read this book.
