This week we look at the so-called Holy Grail.
What is this thing that people are so enamored of? Did it even exist? People have been searching for it for hundreds of years, and it seems whenever they decide they can't find it, they create stories about it.
So, let's travel back to the 12th century, where the myth of the Holy Grail seems to have it's beginnings. And we'll take a look at some of the embellishments that have been attached to it over time.
There does seem to be a link between the Holy Grail of Christian myth and the Celtic tradition of the Cauldron. We'll get into that.
And finally, we'll listen to a story, "The Black Cauldron"
Be well. Do good. Enjoy the show!
