Aftrer reading_King Arthur & the Knights of the Round Table





The Grail

Many stories have been told about the Grail. What do you think it is?



I think the Grail has ever been told in a lot of story. However, the stories I know except “King Arthur & the Knights of the Round Table” are the movie, “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade” and “The Da Vinci code”.


In “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade”, the Grail was described as what makes perpetual youth and longevity possible. The purpose of the story is to find the Grail. In the climax scene, the hero of the story, Indiana received from the knight of the Grail and saved his father in the cave. He was able to escape from the cave which is collapsing by forsaking taking the Grail in the end.

In “The Da Vinci code”, the Grail was described as the symbol of the lady. The ground father of Sophy who is the heroin of the story was killed anyone. She and cryptologist who is a friend of her ground father try to find who killed him. On the way, they find the Grail is related with his death. In the end of the story, it turns out that the heroin of the story, Sophy is the person who is descended from Jesus Christ and she is exactly the Grail. The Grail is not even material in this story.

The Grail was described as various thing as per the above two stories. However, I’m sure that the two stories are very interesting. I think the Grail is like spice which makes the story very interesting.
