    The Holy Grail has haunted the human imagination for centuries. It represents the highest Christian ideals, yet it is nowhere mentioned in the Bible. How did it became such a potent image? Is it simply a symbol of a perfection that lies beyond our reach? Ranging across theology, history, literature and art, Richard Barber's book traces the stories surrounding this most elusive of symbols, from Chretien de Troyes' 12th century writings to the Grail's iconic status in new- age mysticism.
