Nov. 9, 2007 -- A real da Vinci code is indeed hidden within Leonardo's "The Last Supper," according to a book to be published in Italy next week.

Construction of the chapel began on 20th September 1456, although it is often been recorded as 1446. The confusion over the building date comes from the chapel's receiving its founding charter to build a collegiate chapel in 1446 from Rome. William did not start to build the chapel till he had built houses for his craftsmen. Although the original building was to be a cruciform cathedral, it was never completed; the foundations of the original layout were discovered in a 1990 survey. The carving and decoration work was carried on over a forty-year period. The roof was said to have been completed by William St Clair's son after his father's death circa 1491.(In the Middle Ages
