The Da Vinci Hoax, a Catholic documentary produced in response to Dan Brown's best-selling phenomenon, springs from the conviction that Brown's novel is a menace to contemporary theological thought. The program denotes the fact that many readers continue to buy the novel's central premise, no-holds-barred, as historical fact -- the notion that Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene were married, and the church spent centuries systematically murdering discoverers of this "secret." Brown, in fact, has never made any claims to reality with the work, and acknowledges it as fiction -- an opus of unadulterated historical fantasy. But the beliefs persist in spite of Brown's protests. The Da Vinci Hoax travels inside of the historical background behind the book to debunk these myths. Journalist/historian Sandra Miesel, author Carl E. Olson, and Friar Mitch Pacwa, S.J. team up to host this probe into the real Biblical identities of Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene, as an anecdote to the perceived anti-Catholicism in the book and big-screen adaptation of The Da Vinci Code.
