This video is outside the remit of The Prehistory Guys Channel. It was commissioned by a publisher in the US and made by Michael Bott in 2005. Michael has owned this channel since that time and ‘Origins of The Da Vinci Code‘ has a ‘legacy‘ presence here as a result. As it continues to be popular, it does earn a revenue for the channel and although we do not, as The Prehistory Guys, engage with this kind of material, it does help support the work we do from a financial point of view – and so it remains.
Michael says: Back in 2005 – at the height of ‘The Da Vinci Code‘ mania – I was commissioned by a publisher in New York to make a film about the background to Dan Brown’s novel. Why me? Well, I had been working with and was friends with the grandaddy of the whole ‘alternative history‘ phenomenon, co author of “Holy Blood, Holy Grail‘, Henry Lincoln. Henry was concerned that there was an awful lot of nonsense being published at the time about him and the whole story behind The Da Vinci Code, so he leapt at the chance to put the record straight – and to add in what he believes is the ‘true‘ mystery behind the hype. ‘Origins of The Da Vinci Code‘ was born.
Dan Brown’s novel The Da Vinci Code sparked a cultural phenomenon which has led millions of people to explore the mysteries of the isolated hilltop village of Rennes le Chateau. Behind the fiction of the novel is a wealth of detail originally uncovered by Henry Lincoln in his book Holy Blood, Holy Grail.
Origins of The Da Vinci Code sets out to explore these mysteries in detail, including: the history of the Rennes le Chateau; the development of the Holy Bloodline hypothesis before the publication of Dan Brown’s novel; how Henry Lincoln discovered the codes, the discovery of the Rennes le Chateau geometry, startling new discoveries of more landscape geometry beyond the original Pentacle of Mountains. the true extent of the ‘Invisible Temple‘ and more!
What do Da Vinci Code fans miss at Rennes le Chateau? Did the Priory of Sion exist? Does it exist today? What are the secrets of the Code that threaten the Church? These questions and more are explored in this all new exclusive film revealing the secrets of The Da Vinci Code. Origins of the Da Vinci Code is the ultimate guide to the truth and hidden history behind Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code.
