It all began with an apple. But are we really sure the forbidden fruit was actually an apple? Translation mistakes can prove very costly; maybe even change the course of history. It is best to turn to a professional!

The fruit in the Bible is often depicted as an apple. The text of Genesis mentions a "fruit", without saying which. The Latin word for apple is malum, which has the same sound as the word for evil. That is why, in the Middle Ages, they began to depict it as an apple. In short, it all stemmed from a translation mistake.
