Films | This is London: "A handful of protesters were making their feelings known about the decision to film scenes from The Da Vinci Code in the historic building.
Led by a Catholic nun, Sister Mary Michael, they claimed the movie, based on the bestselling novel by Dan Brown, should be filmed elsewhere. She led a 12-hour prayer vigil to push the message home.
The controversial thriller is the story of a Vatican conspiracy to suppress the supposed marriage of Jesus and Mary Magdalene.
And despite the dean of Lincoln Cathedral branding the book 'a load of old tosh' he has agreed to let the movie be filmed there. He and the church authorities said yes after the producers donated Â£100,000 to the coffers."
No word on whether the Cathedral received thirty pieces of silver.
