Kings of the Grail
Bisher € 16,49
BeschreibungRecently discovered parchments in the Egyptian University of Al-Azhar have finally made it possible to identify the current location of the Holy Grail. This extraordinary discovery led Margarita Torres Sevilla and Jose Miguel Ortega del Rio on a three-year investigation as they traced the Grail's journey across the globe to its final resting place in the Basilica of San Isidoro in Leon, Spain. Having been kept in Jerusalem until the eleventh century, the chalice was given to the Muslim prince of DÃ©nia (in Spain) by the caliph of the Fatimid dynasty (rulers of an empire that spanned the Middle East and North Africa). In turn, he presented it to Ferdinand I of Leon and Castile, as a gesture of respect and appeasement. It is still there today, in Leon's Basilica of San Isidoro. Newly translated by Rosie Marteau, and including a 16-page full-colour plate section, this is the definitive book on one of history's most sought-after treasures, the object of both Arthurian myth and Christian legend, and has made headlines worldwide. Kings of the Grail presents the new historical and scientific facts that have come to light, supported by meticulously researched information on the history of Judaism and early Christianity, the significance of the Last Supper, and the other cups that have previously been identified as the Holy Grail.
