Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the Christian Platonism of the Vulgate Queste del Saint Graal. It begins with the Christian and ends with the Platonic. Albert Pauphilet and others have extensively researched the Christian background to the romance, and this part of the discussion will of necessity take up the greater portion of the chapter. Few, if any, have looked at the Platonic side of this Grail story, unfortunately, which concerns not so much a set of specifics as a mode of thought. That part of the chapter will then have to be more tentative and suggestive. The chapter then looks at both sides of the romance through the marvelous, in particular the Grail itself.

Keywords: Albert Pauphilet; Christian Platonism; Vulgate Grail
