Robert Langdon was an Australian scholar known for his work as the executive officer of the Pacific Manuscripts Bureau, a part of the Australian National University.
Langdon was born in Adelaide, served in the Royal Australian Navy during the Second World War, skipped university in favor of a writing career, and spent six years exploring South America. He undertook many different jobs prior to making his way to Tahiti to escape a cold Canadian winter. This journey changed his life. Because he couldn't find a single book that told the story of Tahiti, he returned home to Adelaide and wrote his own: Tahiti, Island of Love. After some time reporting for The Adv
Langdon's research on the history of Amanu island and the possible origin of antique Spanish ship cannons discovered on the atoll in 1929 resulted in his book The Lost Caravel. In this book Langdon presented evidence for his theory that the cannons were from the San Lesmes, a ship of the Spanish Loaisa Expedition. Langdon proposed that the San Lesmes had foundered on the atoll, thrown off the cannons to refloat, sailed to Tahiti where some members of the crew remained, then sailed onward to disc

At the age of seven, Langdon fell into a well and was trapped there at night. This led to him developing claustrophobia, which is continually believed to succeed in the following years. His father died when he was 12 years. At preparatory school, he played water polo and a diver was requested.
Langdon became a professor at Harvard, teaching religious Symbology and Art History. Even as he got older, he would retain his “morning ritual” of swimming laps in the college's pool; his campus nickname “The Dolphin” was both because of his affable personality and his diving skills. By 2003, he had published numerous texts on symbols and was working on the manuscript of his next book, Symbols of the Lost Sacred Feminine, which won him recognition by Jacques Saunière and involved him in the e...
By his female colleagues, Langdon was called an erudite, not much handsome in the classical sense. He was described as having probing blue eyes, fairly pale complexion, thick black hair with wisps of gray, dimpled chin, and a strong, carefree smile. His voice was arrestingly deep, low, and baritone which had been described by his female students as “chocolate for the ears.”He was six foot tall and his body was the one of a swimmer, lean and toned thanks to his morning ritual in Harvard's pool.
The character was created by Dan Brown as a fictional alter ego of himself or “the man he wishes he could be.” Brown himself was born on June 22, 1964 in Exeter, New Hampshire, and the fictional Langdon is described as having been born on the same date, also in Exeter, and attending the same school as Brown did, Phillips Exeter Academy.
Langdon is said to be a tough teacher and strict disciplinarian, but he was also a lover of fun. Throughout the books and the lessons he recalls, it is clear that he is not the ordinary professor, he knows how to entertain the crowd and keep the attention on him, even if sometimes the students have a different opinion. Robert is rather open-minded, he can be seen at the campus discussing themes that go from informatics to ancient religion, but he is also known to believe that old myths are no more than just that.
Robert Langdon (born June 22, 1964 in Exeter, New Hampshire, United States) is described as looking like “Harrison Ford in Harris tweed,” with his standard attire being a turtleneck, Harris Tweed jacket, khakis, and collegiate cordovan loafers, which he wears to all events, from lectures to social events. A frequently referred to accessory is his Walt Disney Mickey Mouse watch, a gift from his parents on his ninth birthday.He drives an automatic Saab 900S. Langdon was a diver at Phillips Exeter Academy in prep school and played water polo at Princeton University where he went for college. He suffers from claustrophobia, the fear of enclosed spaces, as he fell into a well when he was 7 years old. His father died when he was 12, and his new mentor father-figure became Peter Solomon,Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution. Known for a brilliant problem-solving mind and his genius, Langdon has an eidetic memoryand an understanding of semiotics. As a professor at Harvard University, he...Robert has German origins and comes from the name Hrodebert, meaning of the name is “bright fame” (hrod being “fame” and beraht, “bright”).Langdon is a place name meaning “long hill.”

The Lost Language of Ideograms 4. Religious Iconology 5. Symbols of the Lost Sacred Feminine 6. Christian Symbols in the Muslim World

He spent a great deal of time in Spain. Brown wrote and researched the book for four years. It is dedicated to his mother, who died in 2017. It had an initial printing of 2 million copies, with printing set for 42 languages.
The New York Times complimented the book for focusing on "serious ideas" relating to religion and atheism, and whether religion and science can co-exist. It also said the book had a "geeky" humor. The Guardian found the apocalyptic "witches brew" of themes to be relevant to modern times, but it also noted the characters' dialogue made them sound like "cybernauts". Another Guardian review said the book was fun "in its own galumphing way." The Washington Post panned the book, calling the themes an

El personaje fue creado como un alter ego de Dan Brown, quién nació el 22 de junio de 1963 en Exeter, Nuevo Hampshire, Estados Unidos, al igual que el profesor Langdon según menciona en uno de sus libros. El nombre de Langdon es un homenaje a John Langdon, diseñador gráfico, pintor, escritor y profesor de tipografía en la Universidad Drexel, quien además ha trabajado conjuntamente con Dan Brown en la creación de ambigramas para los libros El código Da Vinci y Ángeles y demonios.
Pequeños detalles físicos han sido dados por Brown sobre Robert Langdon. En El código Da Vinci se describe como un Harrison Ford con chaqueta de Tweed y además se dice que su voz, según sus compañeras femeninas de la Universidad, es como terciopelo en los oídos. En El símbolo perdido, Robert Langdon es descrito con un excelente estado físico (gracias a los largos en la piscina de la universidad que realiza cada mañana). En Inferno se aclara que es apuesto, alto y con abundante cabello castaño, además de ser una persona muy educada y de buen corazón. En Ángeles y demonios, Langdon es descrito como un hombre de unos cuarenta y cinco años, con un físico envidiable (debido a que, gracias sus cincuenta largos al día en la piscina de Harvard, aún conserva el cuerpo de nadador de su juventud), y con lo que sus compañeras llaman "un atractivo erudito": espeso cabello castaño con toques de gris, voz profunda y cautivadora, sonrisa alegre y espontánea de un estudiante, ojos azules penetrantes...

O próprio Brown nasceu a 22 de junho de 1964 em Exeter, New Hampshire, e a personagem fictícia de Langdon, é descrito como ter nascido em 22 de junho, também em Exeter, e frequentando a mesma escola que Brown fez, Universidade de Phillips Exeter.

Na página de agradecimentos, Brown chama Langdon de "um dos artistas mais engenhoso e talentosos vivos..." que do qual se levantou...
