<B>Gawain and the Grail Quest </B><I> Healing the Waste Land in Our Time</I>, DIXON, JEFFREY JOHN
1 Gawain and the Grail Quest Healing the Waste Land in Our Time
DIXON, JEFFREY JOHN
0863158749 / 9780863158742 2012 Paperback 
Grail and Arthurian legends continue to fascinate readers today as much as they did when they first appeared in the twelfth century. Why do these medieval stories still resonate so powerfully in our imagination? Could they hold a key to transforming our world, and ourselves? This unique book takes an in-depth look at the themes of the Grail Quest, and at an enduring Grail Hero for our time: Sir Gawain, an all too human and complex figure who bridges earth and heaven and holds opposites in balance: paganism and Christianity, masculine and feminine aspects of the divine, faith and gnosis. Jeffrey Dixon argues powerfully that restoring the healing power that Gawain represents may be essential to our survival in the 21st century, as we face religious fundamentalism and ecological catastrophe. This is a challenging and enlightening book for those interested in the wisdom of the past, and those looking for inspirational ways forward for our world.

<B>Ninth Century and the Holy Grail, The </B><I> </I>, STEIN, W.J.,  WOOD, JOHN M.
2 Ninth Century and the Holy Grail, The
STEIN, W.J., WOOD, JOHN M.
190699904X / 9781906999049 2009 Paperback 
Walter Johannes Stein's The Ninth Century and the Holy Grail is a classic of original scholarly and spiritual research into the Grail legend. In studying the central Grail narrative - Parzival, by Wolfram von Eschenbach - Stein takes a twofold approach. On the one hand he searches historical records in order to identify actual people and events hidden behind the Grail epic's veil of romance. And on the other hand, he deciphers Eschenbach's hidden spiritual messages, revealing Parzival to be an esoteric document containing mighty pictures of the human being's inner path of development.

He reveals the period of the ninth century to be of more than historical and academic interest. It is the karmic ground out of which the destiny of modern times grows - the mighty battle that must take place between the powers of the Grail and the sinister anti-Grail forces at large today.

<B>Parzival </B><I> An Introduction.</I>, HUTCHINS, EILEEN
4 Parzival An Introduction.
HUTCHINS, EILEEN
190699935X / 9781906999353 2012 Paperback 
‘Eschenbach is the first medieval poet to represent a character who has to win his way through trial and error, from ignorance to wisdom, and from fascination with the world of the senses to recognition of higher realms of experience. In this sense he is representative of modern man.’ - from the Introduction

As a naive and innocent young man, Parzival encounters a group of noble knights in the forest. Overcome by the leading knight’s shining armour, he assumes that the man must be a God. This key turning point in Parzival’s life inspires him to seek to become a knight himself, and immediately he embarks upon a quest to find King Arthur’s court and ultimately the Holy Grail. Through his journeys Parzival is to learn many unexpected lessons, discovering qualities of empathy, humility, compassion and ultimately true and selfless love.

Filled with spiritual wisdom and artistic beauty, Parzival is one of the greatest works of world literature. In this concise, accessible introduction to the central Gail story, Eileen Hutchins describes the key characters, including Parzival’s father Gamuret and mother Herzeleide, and relates the tale in outline. Her classic study also features commentary on the book’s historical background, essays on its significance today, and a comparison with other Grail Romances.

EILEEN HUTCHINS studied at Oxford University and began a career in teaching. Quickly disillusioned with contemporary educational thought and practise, she discovered the pedagogical ideas of Rudolf Steiner. Inspired by the Waldorf approach, she helped found Elmfield School in the West Midlands in 1934. She was a popular lecturer and wrote many articles until her death in 1987.

<B>Tree of Life and the Holy Grail, The </B><I> Ancient and Modern Spiritual Paths and the Mystery of Rennes-le-Chateau</I>, FRANCKE, SYLVIA
6 Tree of Life and the Holy Grail, The Ancient and Modern Spiritual Paths and the Mystery of Rennes-le-Chateau
FRANCKE, SYLVIA
1902636872 / 9781902636870 2007 Paperback 
8 pages colour plates + 20 halftones
Recent works of fiction and popular history have promoted the idea that the Holy Grail symbolizes a physical bloodline resulting from the union of Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene. This, supposedly, is the 'secret' that esoteric movements have kept tirelessly for the past 2,000 years. From her groundbreaking research, Sylvia Francke exposes this notion to be a blatant misinterpretation of the mystery traditions that preceded and ran parallel to the birth of Christianity. She traces the ancient spiritual paths of knowledge from the Cathars, the Knights Templar and the enigmatic Rosicrucians, to the work of Rudolf Steiner in the twentieth century. Here, she concludes, is true Grail knowledge: the Tree of Life and the Holy Grail itself explained in their metaphysical context. From her research, she suggests a solution to the riddle of the sudden wealth and strange behaviour of Berenger Sauniere, the mysterious priest of Rennes-le-Chateau in southern France. True Grail knowledge, she concludes, has nothing to do with bloodlines or worldly status, but is an ancient lifeline to the spiritual origins of creation.
Its energetic forces ray up from the earth and down from the constellations and planets while interacting with individual human beings. It holds the key to the fulfilment of mankind's quest, a step to the next phase of human evolution...The recent explosion of interest in an alternative history of Christianity - the shadow Grail - prompted Sylvia Francke to revise "The Tree of Life and the Holy Grail", first published in 1996. The result is a completely reworked and expanded book that constitutes a powerful and convincing refutation of distorted esoteric truths.

Speech of the Grail, SUSSMAN, LINDA
7 Speech of the Grail
SUSSMAN, LINDA
094026269X / 9780940262690 1995 Paperback 
Storyteller and ceremonialist Linda Sussman explores how to speak in a new way that is one that heals and transforms. She takes the epic story of the grail, as told by Wolfram von Eschenbach in "Parzival", as her guide. This tale weaves together Celtic, Oriental, Christian, Arthurian and alchemical sources. Linda Sussman sees "Parzival" as depicting the path of initiation to healing speech, to doing the truth in word and deed. First, she tells the story in a beautiful way, allowing the reader to reproduce within themselves the potent inner pictures of the text. Then she shows that it is not so much a path toward perfection, as the recovery of a right relationship to our imperfections. She shows, too that it is a path in which male and female aspects work together in the overcoming of evil.
