A well written and engaging history of the grail legend, from its first appearance in Chretien de Troyes to modern depictions such as Terry Gilliam's Fisher King and inevitably, Dan Brown. Juliette Wood surveys the various possible origins of the legend, how the grail came to be associated with the eucharist, and how it maintained its appeal as the premier romantic theme throughout the Middle Ages. She looks at sites particularly associated with the legend such as Glastonbury and Wales, as well as delving into the more esoteric grail connections - Templars, Cathars, tarot, Jungian archetypes et al. Recommended.
