'The Nanteos Grail: The Evolution of a Holy Relic' by John Matthews, Ian Pegler & Fred Stedman-Jones
The Nanteos Cup is a medieval wood 'Mazer bowl' which is on display to the public at the National Library of Wales. The vessel is a shallow, hardwood bowl without handles, with a broad flat foot. Originally, it is thought to have been about 10cm in height, with a diameter of 12cm, it has been extensively damaged over the years and slightly less than half of the bowl remains.
This book will appeal to those who are interested in historical mysteries, recording the history of the Cup from its first appearance in the Middle Ages, its theft and remarkable recovery which made the headlines and was featured on BBC Crimewatch, to stories of the cup’s powers and of the miraculous cures experienced by those who drank from it. At some point it became associated with one of the most enduring stories of all time – the Holy Grail.
