Glastonbury, a small town in Somerset, England, stands at the epicenter of a longstanding tradition placing the Holy Grail in Britain. Legend holds that Joseph of Arimathea traveled to Britain, bringing with him both a gathering of followers and the cup that Jesus used at the last supper. He is said to have buried the Grail at Glastonbury, where some claim he founded the first church in England. This volume chronicles one man's personal quest to find historical evidence supporting the traditional beliefs surrounding Joseph of Arimathea and the Holy Grail in southern England.

By the 12th century, European literature was rich with tales of a procession carrying a group of objects closely tied to the Passion of Christ—the Holy Grail, the lance that pierced Christ’s side, the sword used to behead John the Baptist, and a dish from the Last Supper. While legends of the quest for the Holy Grail continue to grip the popular imagination, the other relics, once closely associated with the Grail legends, receive little mention. Still, the overlooked Grail Hallows, as they are called, have a rich symbolic history, winding through the ages—and leading in some surprising directions. This exploration of the forgotten relics of the Grail Procession examines the body of evidence hinting at their authenticity, and traces their history as symbols, from the early days of Christianity, to Celtic mythology, to “the foggy wastelands inhabited by history’s outcasts,” to the suits of the modern tarot. The oral histories and a possible sourcebook that informed the earliest known stories are discussed. Illustrations and photographs of relevant locations and objects, including the cards of the tarot, further illuminate the story. An appendix gives a timeline of the Hallows’ history, and there is a bibliography and an index.

What would happen if someone were charged with a modern-day quest to find the Holy Grail?What mysteries would they uncover?Where might their journey lead them and would they find the true Grail?The Holy Grail - the cup of the Last Supper used to collect the Holy blood of Jesus - has a darker side than the one we know from medievil romance. Andrew Collins, one of the foremost alternative history writers in Britain today, discovers extaordinary new evidence about the true origins of this sacred vessel, unveiling a 2000-year-old secret teaching passed down from the time of Christ concerning the dual role played in the foundation of the Christian Church by Mary Magdalene and John the Evangelist. These forbidden teachings were suppressed by the Church of Rome, yet they managed to survive as part of an underground stream of knowledge kept alive by the Cathar heretics of the French Languedoc, the Knights Templar, Renaissance painters and modern occultists such as Aleister Crowley.This gripping personal quest into the cryptic and shadowy world of arcane societies and esotoric knowledge takes the reader on a journey of visions and mystery before culminating in a dramatic conclusion. Herein lies the colourful and passionate story of strange Gnostic sects and the dark side of Catholic history. Twenty-First Century Grail kicks the Grail legend into modern era and redefines it's boundaries for a new generation.

Holy Grail and Holy Thorn: Glastonbury in the English Imagination explores the legends of King Arthur and Joseph of Arimathea at Glastonbury and how their influence has been felt from medieval to modern times. Joseph was said to have built at Glastonbury the first church in Christendom, which made it a centre of medieval pilgrimage, and gave Glastonbury an international profile in the fifteenth century. Through the winter-flowering holy thorn, said to have grown from Joseph’s staff, and later the Chalice Well, Glastonbury remained a focus of superstition in the Protestant centuries. In medieval romance Joseph of Arimathea had been the first keeper of the Holy Grail, a mystical past that was revived by Romantic writers and artists and ensured that Glastonbury retained a place in our national culture. In the twentieth century Glastonbury’s reputation was further elaborated by the belief that Joseph was the great-uncle of Jesus Christ, and that when he first came to Britain he brought the young Jesus with him, an idea suggested by William Blake’s Jerusalem. In the same mystical tradition, in the 1960s John Michell saw in Glastonbury the dimensions of New Jerusalem, which proved crucial in making Glastonbury the capital of New Age culture.

The essays in this volume, some reprinted in their original form and some extensively revised, are concerned with the Arthurian traditions associated with Glastonbury Abbey. Certain of the essays are analytic and others provide editions of hitherto unknown texts.

Professor JAMES CARLEY is the author of Glastonbury Abbey: The Holy House at the Head of the Moors Adventurous and a past editor of Arthurian Literature.

This book doesn’t so much want to add itself to the long bibliography which already exists on the subject as to examine one particular element, already present in the literary tradition of the Grail: the arrival of the Saint Marys in the south of France and the subsequent journey of Joseph of Arimathea to Glastonbury, in Wales, Great Britain. My intention is to focus, from among the many thematics of the Grail, mainly on the “path of the Holy Grail”, that is to say on the journey of the St. Marys from Palestine to their arrival in Provence, in the south of France, as recounted by Jacopo da Varazze, or by Varagine, (1228-1298) and earlier still by Rabano Mauro (776-856). Joseph of Arimathea is also mentioned as being part of the group who, departing from the south of France, establishes the first church in Great Britain, on Glastonbury Plain, another extraordinary place with very strong ties to the Grail and the Arthurian cycle. But who is really Joseph of Arimathea, or rather Joseph the Just or Joseph Ha-Rama-Theo?! what was the role of Joseph of Arimathea? What was the relationship between Lazarus, Mary Magdalene and Joseph of Arimathea? And the role of Martha? Where did the “Legend” of this journey from Palestine to the South of France originate and how was it elaborated? Why did Joseph of Arimathea take the Grail to Glastonbury, in Great Britain? Of course, we haven’t all the answers, but starting from the questions is also important to try to understand something. Some of the main characters, like Mary Magdalene and Joseph of Arimathea, have been represented in a comparative way that involve the canonic and apocryphal gospels and some codes and documents found in Qumran.
