Transcript of Angels & Demons

Title Dan Brown Pocket Books 2000 Synopsis Angels & Demons brings an ancient secret organisation, The Illuminati and the Vatican, together in a present-day battle over a long forgotten punishment on scientists by the Catholic church in 1668 called La Purga.

Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon must join forces with scientist Vittoria Vetra, in a frantic race to save the Vatican from a modern discovery called Antimatter which becomes as volatile as a nuclear bomb if it comes in contact with matter.

It was stolen from CERN in Switzerland and is stored in a canister which is powered by an ever depleting battery. The Illuminati have placed it somewhere within the walls of Vatican city being monitored by a wireless security camera.

This threatens to destroy the Vatican and the cardinals who have gathered within the Sistine Chapel for conclave. Their journey takes them across Rome and into cathedrals, secret vatican archives and the Illuminati lair following ancient illuminati clues called ‘The Path of Enlightenment’.

Along the way, they uncover many secrets, including who is responsible for the threat to the Vatican, the Camerlengo and the former Pope's closest aide, exposing his fraudulent use of Illuminati legend and murder of the four Preferiti in his hopes that by threatening to destroy the Catholic church, he would become it's saviour Devotion Opposites Location Time Robert Langdon : Symbologist at Harvard and the main protagonist in the novel, using his knowledge of illuminati legend to solve clues in a race to save Vatican city.
