Since Dan Brown's best seller "The DaVinci Code," there has been a real spate in novels with various mythic retellings of the stories of the approved and unapproved sacred literature that arose late in the First Century of the Common Era, continuing to at least the Third. There are as well attempts to join a Gnostic-type of Christianity, which is also connected with Magdalene, with the Albigensians/Waldensians (Cathars). {SIDE NOTE: I am not Christian; however, I believe that the various faith groups underneath that banner have a right to define what they call Christianity for themselves. However, I can also point out that various attempts at filling in the "mythic story" also have a long and respected tradition as well. In addition, some are better and some are worse than others.} [I will finish this review later.]
