The myths and history of the Holy Grail revealed.

A Brief History of the Holy Grail charts the origins of the quest early from Christian gospels through to the eastern mysticism and the rise of medieval romances and Arthurian legends. The grail reappears once more in the story of the crusades and in particular, the rise and dramatic fall of the Knights Templar, who it is said were the guardians of the cup, newly discovered in Jerusalem.

The myths have been even more compelling than the facts and allure of the grail has attracted the attention of modern writers and artists in search of an ancient symbol of purity. Psychologist Carl Jung, composer Richard Wagner, and poets William Blake and T.S Eliot have all been seduced by the legend. Even today the grail quest has been depicted in films such as Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and Excalibur, as well as Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code, which has revived a radical reinterpretation of the myth.

Giles Morgan's fascinating exploration of the myth and history of the grail is an essential read.
