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 were the starting point of a decades-long study presented on this website, which required research in Europe and the Middle East. Our findings reveal that the creators of grail romance adapted these legends to question the basic Church doctrines and celebrate a Count of Barcelona in the ninth century. We also learn that these authors went beyond the modern understanding of the Holy Grail as vessel for the Eucharist and featured instead the Phoenix Myth according to Hesiod, the Greek father of didactic poetry. But it takes two other Greeks, Plato and Plutarch, to help us raise the ancient veils...

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