Ireland and the Grail- “The Grail has become one of the most potent images in the imaginative treasury of humanity“ –How did stories, written in Ireland more than a thousand years ago, travel to France to become a foundation of the Grail narratives? ( ref. John Carey, Professor of Early & Medieval Irish, author of ‘Ireland and the Grail’-2007 )
Stories of the Grail inspired Joseph Campbell to leave New York as a young man in 1927, to study in Europe. He regarded the Arthurian romances as the world’s first “secular mythology”, to be interpreted as metaphors of the natural stages of the human life journey. ( ref. ‘Romance of the Grail’– JCF 2015-Ed. Dr. Evans Lansing Smith )
Where is the Grail today? From ‘The Mists of Avalon’ to beyond ‘The Da Vinci Code’…From royal Tara to modern gangland: Old stories of love and betrayal retold. What can new archaeology tell us about ancient goddesses?
