Jesus Decoded

Jesus Decoded is a new web site created by the Catholic Communication Campaign, an activity of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. Its subtitle indicates clearly what the intent of the site is: Catholic Beliefs Versus Modern Fiction and the introduction, after pointing out some of the mistakes in the novel The Da Vinci Code concludes: this web site was developed "due to the concern about many current media portrayals of Jesus Christ and the origins of Christianity...".

A number of articles on the site concisely and clearly address questions and issues raised by The Da Vinci Code. The tone is sober with none of the histeria that have caracterised some reactions to claims made in the novel.
