The legend of the Holy Grail rose to prominence at the very end of the 12th century but the origins of the story are far older than when Wolfram von Eschenbach was first inspired by the Arabic story. The author traces this mystical story through many countries, the Middle East, Germany, Wales, Ireland, Spain, France, England, Egypt and Greece, to name a few! Was it a cup, as the Vatican suggests, or was it a stone, a person, a code, an initiation, a secret knowledge, a cult, a doctrine or a Brotherhood. Original texts are examined and many aspects are researched, the Kabbalah, Cathars, astrology, Hermetic doctrine, numerology, the bardic tradition, spiritual quest, paganism, the Madonna and cathedral building.
