Twenty years of Arthurian scholarship are distilled in this 1913 study of one of the Western world’s most enduring symbols. Was the Holy Grail the cup Jesus drank from at the Last Supper? The vessel in which Joseph of Arimethea received the blood of Christ? Or was it something else? Weston argues that the Grail legend is actually nature worship passed on

The vessel in which Joseph of Arimethea received the blood of Christ? Or was it something else? Weston argues that the Grail legend is actually nature worship passed on as mystery and tradition.
