How did the Holy Grail come to form the centerpiece of a story about a knight in King Arthur’s court? In this fascinating book Joseph Goering explores the possible sources of this influential tale that originated with Chrétien de Troyes, and ultimately links the legend to medieval paintings in the Spanish Pyrenees which depict the Virgin Mary with a radiant bowl.
