Does Da Vinci's Last Supper really show Mary Magdalene on Jesus' right hand? Did Mary and Jesus really have a child who was the ancestor of the Merovingians? Was there an ancient religion of the Goddess? A Priory of Sion? Does the Louvre pyramid really have 666 panes of glass? Is anything true in The Da Vinci Code, or Holy Blood, Holy Grail, The Chalice and the Blade? Does it matter? Should we care?

Notes: 

This course satisfies the Premodern requirement for the history major.
