Dan Brown

Dan Brown is the author of numerous #1 bestselling novels, including The Da Vinci Code, which has become one of the best selling novels of all time as well as the subject of intellectual debate among readers and scholars. Brown’s novels are published in 54 languages around the world with 200 million copies in print.

In 2005, Brown was named one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World by TIME Magazine, whose editors credited him with “keeping the publishing industry afloat; renewed interest in Leonardo da Vinci and early Christian history; spiking tourism to Paris and Rome; a growing membership in secret societies; the ire of Cardinals in Rome; eight books denying the claims of the novel and seven guides to read along with it; a flood of historical thrillers; and a major motion picture franchise.”

The son of a mathematics teacher and a church organist, Brown was raised on a prep school campus where he developed a fascination with the paradoxical interplay between science and religion. These themes eventually formed the backdrop for his books. He is a graduate of Amherst College and Phillips Exeter Academy, where he later returned to teach English before focusing his attention full time to writing.

Brown is currently at work on a new book as well as the Columbia Pictures film version of his most recent novel.

Dan Brown donates 300,000 Euros to Ritman Library

“I consider it a great honor to play a role in this important preservation initiative that will make these texts available to the public." - Dan Brown

RitmanThumb3Dan Brown has donated € 300,000 to the Bibliotheca Philosophica Hermetica to digitize and preserve part of its ancient collection. The library includes Hermetica, alchemy, mysticism, Rosicrucians and Kabbalah - and has been a resource for researching two of his novels, "The Lost Symbol" and "Inferno."

The donation will be dedicated to providing the public with online access to the core collection of 4,600 ancient books in the near future.

“I consider it a great honor to play a role in this important preservation initiative that will make these texts available to the public," said Brown.

Picturae, a company that specializes in making Dutch cultural heritage digitally accessible, will oversee the process, which is expected to be available by the spring of 2017.

Shannon Cullen, publishing director of Penguin Random House Children’s UK, added “The Da Vinci Code is a thrilling, page-turning adventure that we know older teenagers are already reading. We're pleased that our abridged edition is going to enable more young adults to enjoy Dan Brown's international bestseller, which is packed with fascinating historical content and a clever code-breaking mystery.”
