Phillips, Graham, The Search for the Grail, London: Century, 1995, pp182 (text), pp8 (b/w photos). Dust-jacket. Nice used.

The caption at the lower end of the front of the dustjacket says about the "Astonishing new proof of the existence of the Grail in Britain." This is a modern-day quest based on new evidence for the existence of the sacred cup that initiated a twentieth-century search for the Holy Grail.

The Shroud and The Grail

Currer-Briggs, Noel, The Shroud and The Grail: A Modern Quest for the True Grail, New York: St. Martin's Press, 1987, pp241. Duskjacket. Nice Used.

"The mystery surrounding both the Shroud of Turin and the Holy Grail has never failed to excite the imagination and arouse speculation worldwide." So said the first paragraph written on the inside of the dustjacket.

The author "shows how the Grail has been confused with the Chalice of the Last Supper,...." So what precisely is the Holy Grail?

Even though I have a two-hour DVD about the Knights Templar, but I think it's even better to recline on an armchair and read a book about the Templars.
