Origins of the Holy Grail

(A work in progress!)

This green peak of the Eastern Pyrenees is Mont Verdera in Catalonia (Spain), high above the Mediterranean. Its ancient legends inspired the decades-long study presented on this website, which requires research in Europe and the Middle East. Our latest findings show that the creators of grail romance adapted these legends to question a basic Church doctrine and celebrate the Counts of Barcelona in the 9th century. It seems that the early poets went beyond the modern understanding of the Holy Grail as a vessel for the Eucharist and featured an esoteric Phoenix riddle of Hesiod, the Greek father of didactic poetry. But it takes two other Greeks, Plato and Plutarch, to help us raise the ancient veils...

and understand the numerological and mystical significances written into these poems about a recurring astrophysical force that guides evolution.
