Reviews

"This splendid book will lead you on an exhilarating quest to discover the roots of the Holy Grail in the realm of Faery. Written with scholarly rigor and imaginative depth, it is a triumph of the mythic potency of the Grail and the profound sustenance it offers the soul." * Mara Freeman, author of Grail Alchemy and Kindling the Celtic Spirit *
"Any book written by these authors is worth noting, but this is a real tour de force. The Lost Book of the Grail takes us right into the heart of the Grail tradition. It addresses a key, very cryptic text ironically called The Elucidation, and step-by-step we are invited into its secret heart. We are shown the central act of wounding, which devastates the union between human beings, the sacred land, and the Sidhe, who are guardians of the secret life of the land. We are shown the branches of story that lead us into the restoration of the flowing life and love that are the hallmarks of the presence of the Grail. There is so much in this book; it's sure to become a classic work for all who seek to heal the wasteland and seek the Grail. Thoroughly recommended." * Ian Rees, psychotherapist and program director of the Annwn Foundation *
"This book is a wonderful new exploration of a little-known work in the rich cycle of Grail legends that elucidates with a new translation and commentary. A product of scholarly work that shows great erudition, it is also a pleasure to read and easily accessible to the general public. Caitlin and John Matthews are unparalleled experts on the Grail and Arthurian legend. Their work shows a whole range of insight that comes from a lifetime of study." * Kresimir Vukovic, Ph.D., postdoctoral fellow at the Catholic University of Croatia *
"I share the Matthews' view that The Elucidation draws in large part on authentic Celtic lore, as does the Grail legend. As Welsh scholar Sir John Rees suggested well over a century ago, the poem 'has a very ancient ring.' The Lost Book of the Grail not only illuminates but, I believe, rightly emphasizes the contemporary witness of the countryside being tragically subjected to relentless, irreparable destruction." * Nikolai Tolstoy, author of The Quest for Merlin and The Mysteries of Stonehenge *
"You do not just read this book, you experience it as a seeker. Read it slowly and savor each page as it is amap into the mystery of mysteries. A literary tour de force by the authors." * Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki, author of The Shining Paths *
"In The Lost Book of the Grail, Caitlin and John Matthews combine scholarship and spirituality brilliantly to reveal a long-forgotten prequel to the grail quest stories. Based on a new translation of The Elucidation by foremost esotericist Gareth Knight and Caitlin Matthews, the authors place this prequel in its proper place within the per-Christian world. An excellent addition to the Grail lore." * Lisa Mc Sherry, FacingNorth.net *
