The Holy Grail
May 30, 2009 § Leave a comment
The Holy Grail is one of the most widespread legends of the Middle Ages. It was said to be the vessel of the Last Supper and, at the Crucifixion, the one that received the blood which flowed from the spear thrust in Christ’s side. In the background we find the Cauldron, used by Ceridwen to prepare the three drops of inspiration in, and the Cauldron capable of restoring the dead to life. Whatever, the Holy Grail is very desired object or outcome that borders on a sacred quest.
Hence people quest for it, and some claim to find it too!
- Found in a lonely British Mansion? ~ To set out in the quest of the true and mysterious Holy Grail — and dare to hope to find it —has been a fanciful aspiration of thousands who have been stirred by the mystical romances of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. In the summer of 1959 two English Martinists set out to track down and behold a vessel which is believed to be the actual Chalice of the Last Supper, brought to Britain by Joseph of Arimethea and treasured by the monks of Glastonbury until the sacking of the monasteries 500 years ago. The search of this brother and sister led them to a remote mansion in central Wales. Bro William and Sis Marjorie set out how they found it and what lay at the end of their search in the following record.

I received an email from someone called Prastil who wrote, “Check this hoax out: DaVinciGrail.com.” The site he directed me to claims that the holy grail has finally been discovered in Da Vinci’s painting of the Last Supper. For centuries people have wondered why Da Vinci omitted the grail from his painting, given that the grail is one of the central elements of the Last Supper story. Its absence has spawned a variety of theories, such as the one elaborated in Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code, that the holy grail was Mary Magdalene’s uterus (and that the figure to the left of Jesus in the painting is Mary Magdalene). But DaVinciGrail.com claims that Da Vinci actually did include the grail in his painting, if you look hard enough. He concealed it as a symbol on the wall above the head of St. Bartholomew, the disciple at the extreme left.
