"Barber traces the history of the stories surrounding the Holy Grail, beginning with Chretien de Troyes, who in the twelfth century first imagined the famous scene in which a mysterious golden vessel adorned with jewels was paraded before the eyes of an untested youth. The author died before he could complete his tale, and the unsolved mystery of the Grail has haunted us ever since. By a long series of imaginative transformations, the grail has moved from the sphere of romance to religion, and in twentieth-century popular culture has become an emblem of mysticism and man's highest aspirations, intimately linked with the central ritual of the Christian faith."--Jacket
