"The explosive new book that reveals the true location of the Holy Grail--hidden in plain sight for centuries Recently discovered parchments in the Egyptian University of Al-Azhar have finally made it possible to identify the location where the Holy Grail has been kept for the last 1,000 years. This groundbreaking find led Margarita Torres Sevilla and Jose Miguel Ortega del Río on a three-year investigation as they traced the Grail's journey across the globe, with detective-like skill, and discovered its final resting place in the Basilica of San Isidoro in Leon, Spain. Finally, the dramatic story of the search for and discovery of the Holy Grail is told. Employing meticulous new historical and scientific research, the authors present the definitive history of the cup of Christ, cracking the mystery about one of the world's most sought-after treasures, the Holy Grail--the origin and object of both Arthurian myth and Christian legend and one of the most enduring stories of Christian literature and art. Compelling and thought-provoking, Kings of the Grail is a journey back through time that follows this ancient symbol back to its origins and forward to its place in our modern world"-- Provided by publisher.

Specious reasoning, misleading research, contrary to history, ignorant of the latest biblical archeology.
This book belongs in the mythology/fantasy section not the non-fiction and to me was offensive- the opinions and the writing.
