NEW YORK (AP) - A new Dan Brown novel is coming in May, and the subject is Dante.

Doubleday announced Tuesday that Brown's book is called "Inferno," named for Dante's epic journey in verse. Brown again will feature Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon, the protagonist for his blockbuster "The Da Vinci Code" and for the million-selling follow-up "The Lost Symbol." The book might seem familiar in other ways, as Brown again takes on a masterpiece of Western civilization: "The Da Vinci Code" centered on an iconic painting, the Mona Lisa.

Brown may also be returning to the religious controversies of "The Da Vinci Code," when he infuriated some Catholics by suggesting that Jesus and Mary Magdalene had children. Dante himself was a Catholic who was critical of church leaders.

"Inferno" comes out May 14.
