Apparently, even the Jesus Seminar is trashing the claims of The Da Vinci Code. The article discusses how the "scholars" of the JS, as well as other liberal Christian academics, are joining with conservatives to debunk the book.
From the article:
"Author [and Jesus Seminar Fellow] Robert M. Price, a favorite author in secular humanist circles, said Brown's claim of factual basis 'is part of the fiction.'"
