Temple of the Grail: The Search for the World's Greatest RelicDe (autor) John Matthews, Gareth Knight
en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – 08 Jun 2019
Two of the foremost Grail scholars of our time offer a new translation (the first into English) of two forgotten Grail texts: the 13th-century Sone de Nansay and The Later Titurel of Scharfenburg. These texts offer tantalizing clues into the modern understanding of the Grail quest, as they shed important new light on the mysteries of the Grail temple itself, its relationship to the sacred understanding of architecture and symbol in the middle ages, and its re-discovery in the heart of the Middle East. In addition, Temples of the Grail explores the lineage of the mystical Swan Knights, said to be descended from Sone himself. This book is a must-have for Grail aficionados.
"Matthews, a historian of Arthurian legends, and Knight, a researcher of Western magical traditions, team up again (after Arthurian Magic) in this piquant exploration of the Holy Grail and what has happened to those who tried to find it. ... Any reader intrigued by the Holy Grail's historical trail will love this."--Publishers Weekly
