Grail, Galahad and Parcival

Grail, Galahad and Parcival

People have tried to find the Holy Grail for centuries. But before you can find something, you have to know what you are looking for! In this lecture we will examine the different forms of the grail as cup, stone and blood, but also as the quintessence; the spiritual grail of mystical oneness. We will follow the most brave grailknights on their adventures. Why does Galahad pull a sword from a stone? And why can stupid Parcival fulfill his quest?
