A New Holy Grail

A

Always, these claims that this medieval cup or that is the real Holy Grail. It’s been years since I did my survey of the claims, but here’s one I don’t think I’ve seen before.

“New book claims precious goblet in León’s San Isidro basilica is mythical chalice from which Christ sipped at last supper.

“Curators were forced to remove a precious cup from display in a Spanish church when crowds swarmed there after historians claimed it was the holy grail, staff said. . . .”

“The two historians – León University medieval history lecturer Margarita Torres and art historian José Manuel Ortega del Rio – identified it as the grail in their book, Kings of the Grail, published last week. . . .”

“In Europe alone there are 200 supposed holy grails, the Spanish researchers admitted. They attempted to debunk the authenticity of some of the better known candidates in their book.”
