The Last Supper – Battlestar Galactica

By The Culture Mind, March 24, 2009

Recently the season & series finale of Battlestar Galactica aired globally. As part of the massive push to promote this much anticipated event by Sci-Fi.com geekdom and represent the interests of the general mainstream public, the series producers commisioned a photo shoot that portray’s the characters in the seminal “Last Supper” painting, as immortalised by Leonardo da Vinci. This reminded me of a number of other well known screen folk lore variants that I have seen over the years. Each brings a smile to my face for the endless religious connotations they imply.

  1. Reminds me of the “Da Vinci Code” http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0382625/ (or was it the other Dan Brown book “Illuminatus”?)
    So are there 12 or 13 persons participating the Last Supper?
    Or doesn’t R2D2 count?

    Markus, I have no idea, I’m not a terribly religious type, so I’m not the best person to ask – however I highly recommend on learning about the bible here: http://www.thebricktestament.com/. Made me laugh anyway.

  3. That would have been helpful to lift up marks back in school.. Keep that in mind for Noah ;)

  4. Great!
    And another link to Leonardo:
