"We will destroy your four pillars,
We will brand your preferiti and sacrifice them on the altars of science,
Then bring the church down upon you,
Vatican City will be consumed by light,
A shining star at the end of the Path of Illumination. "
- Angels & Demons is setup as a sequel to Da Vinci Code whereas in the book, Angels & Demons is actually the prequel;
- The last brand in the novel is the Illuminati Diamond, a combination of the 4 elements. In the film, the last brand is just 2 keys crossed with each other. It's not even an ambigram!
