Summary

The legend of the Holy Grail is known throughout the world. Most people however, believe that it is no more than a story that has been greatly exaggerated over time. Servants of the Grail is a groundbreaking book that will change even the most skeptical of minds. Based on years of detailed and painstaking academic research, author Philip Coppens has uncovered evidence proving that that Grail story is based on real-life events and people in a specific timeframe, 1104 to 1137, and in a specific location the royal court of Aragon in northern Spain, as well as identifying the Grail as a foundation stone rather than a cup or chalice as is commonly believed. The result is a unique and revelatory book that will change our understanding of one of the most widely known myths in human history.
