The Hidden Church of the Holy Graal

Vel sanctum invenit, vel sanctum facit

In the 13th century, over a few decades, a huge literature emerged around an unlikelytale. Survivors of the core of early Christianity make a perilous journey to WesternEurope. They begin a hidden bloodline, preserve immensely powerful relics of thecrucifixion, and carry a secret which, if revealed, would turn the established church on itshead. If this seems like
déjà vu
, it is.A.E. Waite gets to the core of the Grail legend, an interwoven mass of narratives whichstarted with seeds of pagan folklore and grew into a massive allegorical Christian epic.This 700 page book will satisfy both the academic reader who wants a survey of the Grailliterature, and the more mystically inclined who seek the Grail itself. Waite examines ingreat detail every known source text for the Grail legend. His literate style makes
 
interesting reading for well-educated readers, despite the repeating themes and storylines. Unlike some of the other writers on this topic, Waite is organized, focused, and nothesitant to turn a critical eye on half-baked theories.In the last two hundred pages, he attempts to make some sense of it all. He examines anddismisses 19th century theories which linked the Grail to the Templars, or Masons, aswell as the unorthodox Cathars, Albigensians and Waldensians of Southern France. Hisconclusion is that there is an 'inner church' in Christianity: not a conspiracy or asubterranean sect, but a mystical core. Instead, Waite's concept of the hidden church isbased on a deep comprehension of the sacrament of communion, and the Holy Grail issymbolic of this.Waite published this
