  • Da Vinci code

    Dan Brown

    De passage à Paris, Robert Langdon, professeur à Havard et spécialiste de symbologie, est appelé d'urgence au Louvre, en pleine nuit. Jacques Saunière, le conservateur en chef a été retrouvé assassiné au milieu de la Grande Galerie. Au côté du cadavre, la police a trouvé un message codé. Langdon et Sophie Neveu, une brillante cryptographe membre de la police, tentent de le résoudre. Ils sont stupéfaits lorsque les premiers indices le conduisent à l'oeuvre de Léonard de Vinci. Ils découvrent également que Saunière était membre du Prieuré de Sion, une société secrète dont avaient fait partie Nexton, Boticelli, Léonardo da Vinci, Victor Hugo, et qu'il protégeait un secret millénaire. L'enquête de nos deux héros les entraînera à travers la France et le Royaume-Uni, non seulement pour chercher une vérité longtemps cachée concernant la Chrétienté, mais également pour échapper à ceux qui voudraient s'emparer du secret. Pour réussir, il leur faut résoudre de nombreuses énigmes, et vite, sinon le secret risque d'être perdu à tout jamais. Traduit de l'anglais par Daniel Roche

    D'OÙ VENONS-NOUS  ?  OÙ ALLONS-NOUS  ?Bilbao, Espagne.  Robert Langdon, le célèbre professeur en symbologie et iconographie religieuse, arrive au musée Guggenheim pour assister à une cérémonie historique avec l'annonce d'une découverte scientifique révolutionnaire.  L'organisateur de cette soirée n'est autre que le grand futurologue Edmond Kirsch, un milliardaire de quarante ans dont les inventions et les prédictions audacieuses ont fait de lui une célébrité mondiale. Kirsch, qui a été dans sa jeunesse l'étudiant de Langdon à Harvard, est sur le point d'annoncer le résultat de ses recherches... et d'apporter enfin une réponse aux deux questions fondamentales de l'humanité.
    Dès le debut de  la soirée, Langdon, comme les centaines d'autres invités, est fasciné par l'originalité de la cérémonie. Une évidence s'impose  : la découverte de Kirsch va susciter une controverse bien plus profonde qu'il ne l'avait imaginé. Mais la soirée parfaitement orchestrée  jusqu'alors va soudain virer au chaos. La découverte de Kirsch risque d'être perdue à jamais. Sous le choc, et en grand danger, Langdon est contraint de quitter précipitamment Bilbao. Dans sa fuite, il est accompagné de Ambra Vidal, la directrice du musée qui a préparé avec Kirsch cette soirée explosive. Tous deux s'envolent pour Barcelone, et se lancent dans une quête périlleuse pour retrouver un étrange mot de passe qui permettra de révéler au monde la découverte de Kirsch.
    Plongeant dans les dédales  sombres de l'Histoire et des religions, Robert Langdon et Ambra Vidal doivent échapper à un ennemi puissant qui semble envoyé par le Palais royal et prêt à tout pour réduire au silence Edmond Kirsch. Sur une piste jalonnée d'oeuvres modernes et de symboles énigmatiques, Langdon et Ambra Vidal vont finir par découvrir les clés menant au secret de Kirsch... et à cette grande révélation qui, depuis des millénaires,  échappe  à la compréhension de l'homme.
