Dan Brown's novel The Da Vinci Code

* It has been condemned as "shameful and unfounded", writes Graeme Paton.

The Catholic Church even appointed one of its top cardinals to expose Dan Brown's novel The Da Vinci Code as a tissue of lies. But now the church is exploiting the bestselling thriller's popularity to boost understanding of Catholicism, with the launch today of a website containing articles, images, prayers, Bible references and recipes designed to accompany the text. It is hoped teachers will use the online guide for English, RE and history lessons. See www.life4seekers.co.ukthedavincicode-resources.htm
