    The legend of the Grail possibly was inspired by Greek, Roman, and Celtic mythologies, which abound in horns of plenty, magic life-restoring caldrons, and the first extant text to give such a vessel Christian significance as a mysterious holy object was Chrétien de Troyes’s late 12th-century unfinished romance Perceval; ou, le conte du Graal, which introduces the guileless rustic.   The grail theme in this romance is set within the wider Arthurian saga, and after Perceval becomes grail king, the tale continues with Arthur's further adventures. Perlesvaus or The High Book of the Grail is a French prose romance written at the beginning of the thirteenth century. The author's patron was the crusader lord, Jean de Nesle, and Book Edition: 1st.

    “This is an important work on the Grail mythology. Emphasizing literary and symbolic studies, the author shows a very strong knowledge of early myth and legend and helps restore the Grail mythos to its original role as an icon of the process of initiation, rather than as a historical anomaly.” Robert Burns, New Dawn, May-June   Great read!

This book inspired me to go to England (which I haven't done yet.: () just to see the foundation of what was once, "Camelot" in a place called Glastonbury/5.
