The Holy Grail is the centerpiece of Arthurian literature, and this classic work by the renowned scholar Arthur Edward Waite is one of the most informative and profound books ever written on the subject. Waite reveals that beneath their pious surface, the quest for the Holy Grain is as subversive as any other form of mysticism — illustrating the symbolic nature of doctrinal teachings which were never intended to be literally interpreted. Waite restores the full and true meaning of the Grail quest as a journey of the soul.
