Nationally recognized researcher Richard Abanes, author of "Harry Potter and the Bible, " looks at three of the most fascinating people in history: Jesus Christ, Mary Magdalene, and Leonardo Da Vinci. Based on his extensive research, Abanes explores the answers to many of the questions that Dan Brown's fictional thriller, "The Da Vinci Code, " raises: Are Da Vinci's paintings really full of clues about an alternative religion? Were Jesus and Mary Magdalene married? Has the church suppressed the truth about the "Lost Gospels"? What is the real nature of the Holy Grail?

Join Richard Abanes as he "de-codes" one of the most controversial novels of our time and goes behind the scenes to separate fact from fiction.
