Ireland and the Grail is a fascinating new book by John Carey in the Celtic Studies series that takes a detailed look at the origins of the myth of the Holy Grail and traces occurrences of themes that extend through Irish, Welsh, English and French literature.

This. Ireland and the Grail not only demands to be read, it deserves a thorough response and follow-up from both converts and critics. In fact, Careys book is only one of several recent studies that focus on the Irish contribution to medieval Francophone literature '--Matthieu Boyd, Harvard University "ArthurianaSpring "Pages:   Ireland and the Grail by John Carey,available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide/5(6).

He succeeds, but only by invoking the magic power of the Holy Grail. In this historical novel the scene of the action is both Ireland and Britain (Hibernia and Britannia). The Roman Legions are gone from Britannia which is fast becoming a wasteland. Only a young warlord called Arthur offers hope.

Loomis argues that the Grail legend owes its origin to the Irish echtrai, and he traces similar narrative elements and patterns from Ireland, to Wales, then to Brittany, and finally to French monks and drawing from the cult of relic collection in Cornwall/5.

The author goes on to show how the holy cup was passed for safekeeping to the monks of Lindisfarne, who copied the secrets of the Grail into the Lindisfarne Gospels and the Book of Kells.

Fleeing from Viking raids, the monks carried their treasures to Ireland, explaining how the cup found its way to the Dublin Museum--where it rests today. Among specialists of medieval Celtic literature, John Carey has earned a reputation as an unusually meticulous and productive scholar.

De Troye’s book is the first time the Holy Grail appears in literature, but he never describes the exact nature of the Grail.

Legends of the Grail: Stories of Celtic Goddesses is a beautifully written book bringing to life a vast collection of Irish myths and legends presented in a fresh, positive, and delightful way.

This is a great contribution on the author's part to keep these ancient myths and legends alive so they may live again and again in the heart, mind, and soul of the (new) generations for eons to come/5(37). Arthurian scholar R.S. Loomis cites the first known written version of a 'grail story' as The Prophetic Ecstasy of the Phantom, written in Ireland sometime before CE, possibly c.

The word "Grail" derives from the Latin "gradalis" that means "cup" or "chalice." The earliest reference to The Holy Grail is found in a book [now lost] called "The Holy Grail," which is mentioned in later writings, whose author probably wrote the book from materials found in about apocryphal gospels written in the second-century.
