The
Queste
is dated about 1220,a fact which renders its attribution to Gautier Map, who died before 1210,"fantastic." As we shall see, it was plainly conceived by someone writing under the influence of theCistercian Order, and it was intended to be a picture of the victorious Christian life as shown forth tomediaeval humanity by the White Friars.The individual author is unknown.The
Queste
forms part of a long series of French prose compositions collectively known as theLancelot−Graal series, arranged in the following order:
 Estoire du Graal, Merlin,
with its continuation,
 Lancelot, The Queste,
and
 Mort Arthur.
The material contained in this series of romances has been preservedin whole or in part in many manuscripts.The
Queste,

Further, Robert de Boron had alreadyidentified Perceval with the search for the Grail as a holy object of desire. In what, then, consists the apparentoriginality of the author of the
Queste
