Holy Grail is placed in Northern Spain, according to Leon University historians

The treasured goblet from which Jesus Christ sipped from at the last supper is allegedly placed at Leon, Northern Spain. The goblet at the Basilica of San Isidoro was claimed by historians as being the actual Holy Grail. Consequent to this declaration, crowds rushed towards the Spanish Church where it was at display. Due to the overwhelming response of the people to this evaluation, the curators were left with no choice but to conceal it. Two historians published a work claiming that the antique goblet was actually the legendary chalice which Christ resorted to quench his thirst, at the last supper.

It has been confirmed by Raquel Jaen, the basilica’s museum’s director that on Friday it was decided that the cup would be taken off display and meanwhile curators are trying to find a large space where the alleged ‘Holy Grail’ may be showcased for larger crowds.

The chalice is made of a variety of elements, including agate, onyx and gold. It is studded with precious stones making it seem even more exquisite and is an amalgamation of two goblets, one turned down, while the other facing up. The Holy Grail, as the two historians claim it, was in the possession of the daughter of Fernando I, Ruler of Leon from 1037 to 1065. These two historians who have made such a significant claim are Margarita Torres, Medieval History lecturer and José Manuel Ortega del Rio, Art historian; both stationed at the Leon University. Their book which identifies the chalice as the Holy Grail is known as “King of the Grails” and was published last week.

The two historians said that they had got hold of two Egyptian parchments at Cairo University in 2011 which caused them to speculate and make this claim regarding the Holy Grail’s existence. They admitted that approximately 200 Holy Grails are claimed to be present all over Europe and through their work they wish to establish the credibility and authenticity of the Basilica Museum one as the genuine Holy Grail.
