Here is the tale of the search for the Holy Grail, the vessel that received the blood of Christ upon the day of his Crucifixion. This anonymous story is thought to be a continuation of the French trouvère Chrétien de Troyes' unfinished "Perceval, The Story of the Grail." Written sometime in the early 13th century, this Arthurian Romance remains unique for its high amount of allegorical mysticism and use of Celtic lore. Our hero Perceval here goes through various toils and trials in his continued search for the Holy Grail. An important piece of the Arthurian canon, "The Quest for the Holy Grail" adds to the rich world of King Arthur's court. Again we meet Gawain, Lancelot, and Galahad, as their quest for divinity moves forth.

This is not your typical Arthurian legend of the Grail. It took a long time for me to read this novel, but it was worth it :-)
