The Da Vinci Code - Quest Solution (21 of 24)

This was by far the easiest challenge to date. I will be making three posts over the next three days.

The first post will give you the statistics of this blog over the 24 days of the Da Vinci Code Quest. So if you are wondering how many people are in pursuit of one of those treasured prize items, you'll be interested in this post.

The next post will be about the last day of the puzzle. If your wondering if we will give or not give out the solution to the last puzzle, you'll want to read this one.

And finally, what are we to do after the quest is over. I will blog about any topic of your choosing. If it is related to Google that would be even better, but I won't put any restrictions on it. If there is something you have always been wondering about related to Google, you will want to read and comment on this post.




My question was about the Bishop of Cavaillon. What was the reason for the second present? dog See this link. Congratulations to David who solved this challenge in the quickest time.

Post your solution to the 21st challenge in the comments below this post.

My question was a Google Book Search, "it was not less strange that Petrarch never showed this to Boccaccio" - the answer is Scipiade

Also a book search from petrach - what was the second present 'flat drake' is the answer
 
Same as Eric - I had to look in The Eclectic Review for something 'justly considered' 'a product of poetic lah de dah etc' and it was indeed chivalry. I guess this gets me out of holding open doors for ladies :-)
 
My question was what little village did Petratch go to see in passing from Parma to Verona - Pietola
 
Google Book Search here too, for the author said in Vol. IV of The Eclectic Review to possess a "fervid imagination and wonderful power."

The answer is Ruskin.
 
The third present is an epistle.
 
My question was: According to Vol. XXIII of The Eclectic Review, ecclesiastical power of all kinds is an engine of what?

my question is "according to vol. XXII of the Eclectic Review, we must confine ourselves to the explication of what?"

i can't seem to find the answer
 
Mine's " According to Vol. XXIII of The Eclectic Review, the number of christians in cochin china is how many?" ans so far i can't find an answer :-((
 
Hey Gilbo, I believe the answer is 70,000.

page 92 of the book.

Question for Day 21
According to Vol. XXIII of The Eclectic Review, the only way to win the mind over to religion is by shewing it to be what?

Answer: The Greater Good
 
It appears there are many different picture arrangements and many different questions hwen you solve it.

My guess it is an effort to thwart people helping each other.

If the first puzzle you get is particulary hard, try getting a new one. This is aprticularly good in the sudoku style, eventually one pops tha gives you better clues.
 
Tim (and others), just post the quote into google book search and it will solve the mystery.
 
My question was: "In the letters to Bishop of Cavalion, Petrarch says truth begets what?"

According to Vol. IV of The Eclectic Review, whose art was distinguished by the fiery ardour and enthusiastic vivacity of youth?
 
search books.google.com for the answer.
