20 Years of the Da Vinci Code: The Inside Story From the People Who Inspired It with Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince, hosted by Atlantis Bookshop, September 7, 2023, London, UK.
“A TALK by LYNN PICKNETT and CLIVE PRINCE,
authors of The Templar Revelation
The Gardner Room at The Atlantis Bookshop
Thursday 7th September, 2.15-5.00pm
Dan Brown said of his phenomenal bestseller, The Da Vinci Code: ‘I got everything I needed from The Templar Revelation.’
Now, 20 years since the publication of The Da Vinci Code and 25 years since The Templar Revelation was published (with its first chapter entitled ‘The Secret Code of Leonardo da Vinci’!), Lynn and Clive will speak about the secrets of their immensely influential book – plus what Brown got right, what he got wrong and what he thought just too controversial in their book to use… Not to mention the inside story of what he nearly wrote, which would have been based on yet another of their books!
As the people who first discovered the secrets in Leonardo’s artwork, they will also reveal their new findings – some shocking and some plain hilarious. You will never look at his so-called pious paintings the same way again, especially with one particularly jaw-dropping revelation!
So while da Vinci was not the Messiah, he was certainly a very naughty boy….”
About The Templar Revelation: Secret Guardians of the True Identity of Christ [Amazon, Bookshop, Publisher, Local Library] by Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince.
“The most closely guarded secret of the western world is about to be revealed—and you will never see Christianity in the same light again.
In a remarkable achievement of historical detective work that is destined to become a classic, authors Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince delve into the mysterious world of the Freemasons, the Cathars, the Knights Templar, and the occult to discover the truth behind an underground religion with roots in the first century that survives even today.
Chronicling their fascinating quest for truth through time and space, the authors reveal an astonishing new view of the real motives and character of the founder of Christianity, as well as the actual historical—and revelatory—roles of John the Baptist and Mary Magdalene.
Painstakingly researched and thoroughly documented, The Templar Revelation presents a secret history, preserved through the centuries but encoded in works of art and even in the great Gothic cathedrals of Europe, whose final chapter could shatter the foundation of the Christian Church.”
