Description
Charting the emergence of the legend of the Grail, this handsome volume offers insight into the shift from Celtic paganism to Christianity in Western Europe. The influence of Eastern mysticism emerges in the Grail romances as a result of the clash of cultures and the mix of ideas during the medieval crusades, as Giles Morgan describes here; since then the Grail has come to symbolize the ultimate spiritual achievement, and has fascinated such modern minds as Carl Jung, T.S. Eliot, and William Blake. Morgan also considers the presence of the Grail in popular culture, from The Once and Future King to Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
