Looking For: Books on Religion/Art/Culture/Philosophy

Yes, very broad but... you're recommendations.

Non-fiction, or fiction as long as it includes a lot of factual information. Something like The DaVinci Code, but factual.

If you've read Da Vinci's code I'll assume you've read angels and deamons too. But in case you haven't you might want to check it out. More interesting imo.
