Product description

Review

"This erudite and lucid work is an engaging and fascinating book. [It] provides a healthy dose of academic rigor and clarity to an area of study often expoited by pop-metaphysics authors."--Leni Austine, Pangaia

"There is no better spokesman for the ancient Celts than Jean Markale."--Andre Breton

"This is an important work on the Grail mythology. Emphasizing literary and symbolic studies, the author shows a very strong knowledge of early myth and legend and helps restore the Grail mythos to its original role as an icon of the process of initiation, rather than as a historical anomaly."--Robert Burns, New Dawn, May-June 2005

Synopsis

Showcases the history, legends, and lore of the holy grail in Christian and Celtic myth, popular archetypes surrounding the unattainable quest for a marvelous object, and the adoption of the grail symbol by the Knights Templar.
