Item description for On the Trail of the Holy Grail (On the Trail of) by Stuart McHardy...
You won't find the Holy Grail under the Louvre... Scholars have long known that the Grail is essentially legendary ? a mystic key forever sought by those seeking Enlightenment, a quest in which the search is as important as the result. Theories abound as to its true origins and meaning, most of them un-provable. But now, in a revolutionary new quest for a deeper understanding of Grail lore, folklorist and historian Stuart McHardy draws on decades of research in his native Scotland to expose a phenomenally powerful force of nature that could be the genesis of the Grail. How does the crucial idea of the 'sacred feminine' or goddess link to Scotland's past ? and present? In Arthurian legend, was the historic 'king' really Welsh? How can we break the coded history of the Grail embedded throughout the Scottish landscape? Only On the Trail of the Holy Grail can give you the definitive answers.
