I've not read The Da Vinci Code, but Sandra Miesel has, and she pretty much takes it to pieces. Given the book's popularity, its revisionist view of history raises it to the stature of a Big Lie--and Sandra has the goods. I'm not an expert in the area, but I am a bit of a history buff, and so far as I can tell she's dead on in her criticisms.

Sandra Miesel's still around? Cool!
Now, can we get her to post some of her essays on Poul Anderson on the web?
