The first book to help you understand the mysteries and secret histories within the plot of Dan Brown's bestselling ANGELS AND DEMONS.
SECRETS OF ANGELS AND DEMONS provides the curious reader with concise, authoritative explorations of the major themes that help propel the plot of Dan Brown's new bestseller, ANGELS AND DEMONS.
Taking the same detailed approach as SECRETS OF THE CODE, Burstein and de Keijzer examine the provocative issues raised in the novel: the existence and scope of the Illuminati and their relationship to other 'secret societies'; the ongoing, centuries-old debate between science and religion; the history and practices of the Vatican and pagan symbolism and its place within the Church. They also 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; and the real state-of-the-art of anti-matter technology.
This book will delight and engage everyone who finished ANGELS AND DEMONS thinking, 'I need to know more about this book'.
