Set against the backdrop of beautiful Baroque Rome, you are taken inside the Vatican to see how the process of conclave and papal selection really works. Readers will explore the world of Bernini, master artist of the Baroque era, and the secret meaning behind his symbolism.
From the team that brought you the bestselling SECRETS OF THE CODE: The Unauthorized Guide to the Mysteries Behind the Da Vinci Code, comes the first literary companion to Dan Brown's bestselling novel ANGELS AND DEMONS, from the origins of Christianity to the provocative themes of conspiracy and cover-up. SECRETS OF ANGELS AND DEMONS provides the curious reader with concise, authoritative explorations of the major themes that help propel the plot of ANGELS AND DEMONS. Featuring extracts, interviews and specially commissioned commentary by world-renowned scholars, SECRETS OF ANGELS AND DEMONS presents a wealth of information on the vast range of subjects covered in the novel. Taking some of the comprehesive, detailed approach as SECRETS OF THE CODE, SECRETS OF ANGELS AND DEMONS delves into and deconstructs the provocative issues raised in the novel -- the existence and scope of the Illuminati and their relationship to other 'secret societies' (the Priory of Sion, the Freemasons, Opus Dei, etc.), 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. Readers will 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'.
