The Grail, from Celtic myth to Christian symbol by Roger Sherman Loomis( Book )
42 editions published between 1963 and 1993 in 3 languages and held by 1,650 libraries worldwide
"The medieval legend of the Grail, a tale about the search for supreme mystical experience, has never ceased to intrigue writers and scholars by its wildly variegated forms: the settings have ranged from Britain to the Punjab to the Temple of Zeus at Dodona; the Grail itself has been described as the chalice used by Christ at the Last Supper, a stone with miraculous youth-preserving virtues, or a vessel containing a man's head swimming in blood. In his classic exploration of the major versions, Roger Sherman Loomis shows how the Grail, once a Celtic vessel of plenty, evolved into the Christian Grail with miraculous powers. Loomis bases his argument on historical examples involving the major motifs and characters in the legends, beginning with the Arthurian legend recounted in the 1180 French poem by Chrétien de Troyes. Loomis's book builds suspense as he proceeds from one puzzle to the next in revealing the meaning behind the legends"--

Celtic myth and Arthurian romance by Roger Sherman Loomis( Book )
49 editions published between 1926 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,086 libraries worldwide
King Arthur was not an Englishman, but a Celtic warrior, according to Loomis, whose research into the background of the Arthurian legend reveals findings which are both illuminating and highly controversial. The author sees the vegetarian goddess as the prototype of many damsels in Arthurian romance, and Arthur's knights as the gods of sun and storm. If Loomis's arguments are accepted, where does this leave the historic Arthur?

Lanzelet; a romance of Lancelot by Ulrich( Book )
13 editions published between 1951 and 2005 in English and held by 20 libraries worldwide
"Lanzelet is an enigmatic piece of Arthurian literature. Composed soon after 1194, it is the second German Arthurian romance. It was based on a French model, now lost, which could have been part of an "old" hardly accessible Arthurian tradition, so that Lanzelet is a key text in the early history of Arthurian romance. In addition, however, its fascinating literary facture means that a text which was long undervalued is now a central element in Arthurian research. The student edition provides the text and a translation, together with the abridged critical apparatus of the "large" new edition."--Publisher's website
