The Grail is the best known of all Christian iconic objects after the cross itself, and is an even greater symbol in the modern imagination than it was in the medieval one. None the less, it has never been recognised by any actual Church. This lecture is intended to answer the question of why this should be so; where the story of it first originated; whether there is or was any real object behind it; and whether a quest to find it has any remaining meaning
