Westminster Abbey slams Brown's 'Da Vinci Code'Breaking News
The abbey barred the filmmakers from its premises in June, saying in a brief statement that the bestselling Dan Brown novel on which the film was based was "theologically unsound." The book's central themes --that Jesus married Mary Magdalene and fathered a child, and that Christianity is a sexist conspiracy to keep women from positions of power -- have been debunked by cardinals and historians.
Nicholas Sagovsky, Westminster Abbey's canon theologian, argues that numerous errors in the book undermine its author's claims to have based it on solid research.
