The Holy Grail by Giles Morgan

This is a high-level guide to The Holy Grail charting the origins of the quest from the early Christian gospels through to modern day stories and films.

The book introduces all the characters you would expect: King Arthur, Galahad, Percival, Wolfram von Eschenbach, Malory, TS Eliot, Dan Brown, and Indiana Jones.

It’s an interesting read and includes many interpretations about the Grail legends from authors who might not get a mention in more academic books on the subject.

The book was written before the latest ‘research’ on the Holy Grail, research indicating the grail is in Leon, Spain. There’s also no mention of the grail in Valencia cathedral.
