“The Da Vinci Code” Response by Profs. Kelley Spoerl and Fr. Benedict Guevin, O.S.B.
May 25, 2006
Profs. Kelley Spoerl and Fr. Benedict Guevin, O.S.B., both spent much time with journalists in May discussing the novel, The Da Vinci Code. It started with a New Hampshire Union Leader article about the Manchester diocese’s response to the novel. The front page story quoted both professors, who also appeared in an Associated Press version that ran in the Concord Monitor, Boston.com and the WMUR Web site.
Spoerl, associate professor and chair of the Theology Department, also discussed the novel on New Hampshire Public Television’s NH Outlook (her interview starts at the 12:34 miute mark) and in the Sunday (Concord) Monitor. Fr. Benedict, theology professor, appeared on the Woody Woodland Show, WSMN-AM in Nashua, and WNTK-AM in New London. Earlier, he appeared on New Hampshire Public Radio’s The Exchange discussing both the newly revealed Gospel of Judas and The Da Vinci Code.
