Fig 4.10 – Holy Grail

Text: Page 137

During medieval times, the Holy Grail symbolized the cup used by Jesus at the Last Supper. It was the cup with the blood of Christ from his crucifixion that was received by Joseph of Arimathea. It was believed that anyone finding the cup would acquire miraculous powers, happiness, eternal youth, and infinite abundance. Finding the Holy Grail symbolized the power of the brotherhood of knights. Their swords were not only symbols of violence and protection, but symbols of an enlightened vision of knightly equality and justice. Arthur wanted this most important search to be led by his most trusted friend and confidant, Lancelot, considered the greatest swordsman, and jouster of his age.
