Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The noted author of From Ritual to Romance describes and analyzes the literature of the Grail cycle and surveys the leading theories about the origins and meaning of the legend. Her conclusion is that the Grail story is a confused and fragmentary record of a special form of nature worship, which, elevated to the dignity of a mystery, survived as a tradition. Appendix. Bibliography. Index.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 155-157) and index.
