Shame on Rough Guide for publishing such trash!
Just one example to show what I mean:-
"'The Last Supper' is based on the Gospel of John where the supper is over, the table has been cleared, and Jesus dramatically announces that one among them will betray him. There is no reason why there should be a cup or chalice evident in this scene." (from the Glossary at the back)

Words of sheer lying desperation!

Just look at the actual picture and you see -
1 - Quite a few untouched small bread rolls.
2 - 1 La

This is OK for something very, very basic.

But after numerous visits to Rennes le Chateau over 20 years, the best key I ever found to the mystery of Rennes was the anonymous French masterpiece Meditations on the Tarot.

Link to my review of the English edition of that here:
This is a great follow-up to reading the novel or watching the movie in order to sweep out some residual cobwebish confusion.
I especially appreciate these authors' pointing out Dan Brown's flights of literary license or nonsense. I wish that I had not read Da Vinci Code so long ago.
I even read the Glossary for greater gnosis.
Amazingly analysed, a thorough research that has to be read after watching the famous movie not before,
