    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... more...

  • Ironie, Polemik und Provokationby Cora Dietl; Christoph Schanze; Friedrich Wolfzettel

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 126.00

The volume thus casts new light on medieval narrative as well as on the... more...
