From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Da Vinci Code comes the explosive thriller that started it all.

An ancient secret brotherhood. A devastating new weapon of destruction. An unthinkable target.

The Illuminati has now surfaced to carry out the final phase of its legendary vendetta against its most hated enemy -- the Catholic Church.

Langdon's worst fears are confirmed on the eve of the Vatican's holy conclave, when a messenger of the Illuminati announces they have hidden an unstoppable time bomb at the very heart of Vatican City. With the countdown under way, Langdon jets to Rome to join forces with Vittoria Vetra, a beautiful and mysterious Italian scientist, to assist the Vatican in a desperate bid for survival.

Il Miglior Dan
Dopo aver letto il Codice da Vinci e tutti i libri di Dan Brown posso tranquillamente ammettere che 'Angeli e Demoni' è il migliore. Guardare Roma con occhi diversi regala un fascino inarrivabile.

Un libro bellissimo. Appassionante, avvincente, fluido. Non ho mai verificato se le informazioni contenute all'interno corrispondessero a verità. Essendo un romanzo un opera di fantasia le ho interpretate come facenti parte della storia, senza scende ...Continua

“Um . . . hold on,” Hitzrot ventured, sounding awake now. “I know something Christian that’s original. How about our image of God? Christian art never portrays God as the hawk sun god, or as an Aztec, or as anything weird. It always shows God as an o
