The Da Vinci Code?

There are very few people who have not heard of the last supper that Jesus Christ had – but, has anyone bothered to analyze what he ate? The painting of Leonardo da Vinci dated between 1495 and 1498 depicts the people gathered round the table on which the dishes are laid out – but, what was the menu? Two US scientists have gone deep into the subject and have concluded that over the last 1000 years, the size of the main dish grew by 69.2%, the size of the pates by 65.6% and the size of bread by 23.1%. The researchers have also concluded that the main dish contained fish or eel 18%, lamb 14% and pork 7%. The world is full of people who love to think out of the box and these two US academics, undoubtedly, belong to that special category.
