The Holy Grail is the most precious and sacred object in Britain.
BackstoryThe Grail played a central role in the most important events of the death of Jesus Christ. Shortly before His death, Jesus taught his disciples the ritual of Holy Communion, a rite wherein the worshipers participate in the Last Supper of Jesus. In that rite, He used a vessel to hold the wine of the ceremony. That vessel was the Grail. Shortly afterward, He was crucified and died, and shed his blood for the redemption of humanity. Joseph of Arimathea used the vessel to catch the dripping blood of Jesus as He died upon the cross. Thus it became the vessel wherein the grace and power of Christ’s sacrifice was first held, and through which salvation was materialized. As such, the Grail has many miraculous powers, first manifested when its keeper, Joseph of Arimathea, was imprisoned. Though kept entirely without food, the Grail fed and sustained him for years.
The Holy Grail is noted for four particular powers: healing, providing sustenance, moving about at need, and changing its external form. Sometimes it looks like a goblet, at other times a plate, and yet others as a gleaming jewel. All these things are reflections of its inner majesty and mystery. The Holy Grail is kept at Castle Carbonek by the Grail Kings (currently the Fisher King) and their pious court. From there they teach the secrets of Grail Christianity, which seeks the mystical understanding found in the balance of masculine power of the transcendent God and his Son and the immanent Goddess and her Daughter.
