Origins of the Holy Grail

(A work in progress!)

This green peak is "Mont Verdera" in the Eastern Pyrenees of Catalonia (Spain) at the Mediterranean coast. Its legends inspired the decades-long study presented on this website, which required research in many parts of Europe and the Middle East. Our findings show that the creators of grail romance adapted these legends to challende a basic Church doctrine  and celebrate a "grail event" 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 feature a riddle of Hesiod, the Greek father of didactic poetry. But it takes two other Greeks, Plato and Plutarch, to help us raise these ancient veils...

and study the numerological and mystical significances written into these romances about a recurring astrophysical force that guides our evolution.
