This research focuses on Fictional Representation of Facts about the Roles of Constantine in Dan Brown's Novel, The Da Vinci Code. In order to achieve the aim of the research, I employ sociological approach. Sociological approach is appropriate to be used since the novel is the representation of the society. The novel has the concept of mimetic that it imitates the social environment of the writer. The primary source of data in this research is Dan Brown's novel The Da Vinci Code, produced by Doubleday Fiction in 2003. The primary data of the research are in the form of words, dialogues, phrases and sentences which are important and related to the research topic. The secondary data are taken from articles, books, e-books, online media and other relevant sources of data that support the primary data. They may be words, phrases and sentences of information that deal with the research problem.
Based on the data analysis, I draw conclusion as follows: the statements mentioning Constantine's roles in the development of the church in 4th century is a controversial issue. The issue contradicts historical fact and ruins common people's understanding about the role of Constantine in Christianity history especially for Christians who understand the important role of Constantine in the history of Christianity. Through the character of Teabing, Dan Brown convinces the readers about the role of Constantine in the development of church in the 4th century.
The significance of the fictional representation of religious history focusing on the role of Constantine in the development of church in 4th century is that it is against the historical fact of Christianity. The conception is also against the traditional belief of Christians. Constantine, as one of important figure in Christianity history, is taking a big role in the development of the church, especially in the 4th century. Through the character of Teabing, Dan Brown has different view about Constantine which is against the historical facts and Christian's traditional belief.
