This is for Prince

Although I haven't heard Prince rail on the Da Vinci code (maybe he doesn't take it seriously enough to waste his time on it), I think he would be pleased with the concise post at Slate that shows where the characters in Dan Brown's book, and now the movie, got history wrong. Although I love watching ultra-religious people squirm whenever their beliefs are challenged, I do think it is important to know that there are historical criticisms of Dan Brown's book.
