Exclusive Holy Grail

Post by SpursKing on Sun Aug 09, 2009 11:42 pm

According to Christian mythology, the Holy Grail was the dish, plate, or cup used by Jesus at the Last Supper, said to possess miraculous powers. The connection of Joseph of Arimathea with the Grail legend dates from Robert de Boron's Joseph d'Arimathie (late 12th century) in which Joseph receives the Grail from an apparition of Jesus and sends it with his followers to Great Britain; building upon this theme, later writers recounted how Joseph used the Grail to catch Christ's blood while interring him and that in Britain he founded a line of guardians to keep it safe. The quest for the Holy Grail makes up an important segment of the Arthurian cycle, appearing first in works by Chrétien de Troyes.The legend may combine Christian lore with a Celtic myth of a cauldron endowed with special powers.

Exclusive Re: Holy Grail

Post by Eadhmonn on Wed Sep 30, 2009 6:06 pm

The story of the "Holy Grail" seems like more of an adaption by Christian monks in applying it to the "Cauldron of Re-Birth" from Celtic Mythology, such as the Gundestrup Cauldron discovered in Denmark. I find amazement that so much of the Arthurian legends, were later additions to the story of a 4th Century Romano-Celtic king who's real claim to fame was in defeating the Germanic i.e. Ango-Saxon invaders into Britain, bereft of all the Middle Ages adaptations, the story takes on a whole different atmosphere.
