Orders of the Quest of The Holy Grail by MP Hall
The legends of chivalry are veiled accounts of man’s eternal search for truth. These beautiful stories are part of an orderly tradition, unfolding through the centuries and bearing witness to a well-organized program. Like the myths of classical antiquity, the hero tales are sacred rituals belonging to secret Fraternities perpetuating the esoteric doctrines of antiquity. The origin of the “Grail Legend” begins with Manes, whose philosophy has survived as the driving force behind Christian Mysticism. This tradition was perpetuated through the Troubadours, Knights Templar, Taliesin the Bard, secret Druid assemblies of Wales, King Arthur and the Round Table, Parsifal and Lohengrin. There are also parallels in the search for mysterious Shamballah, said to stand on the Imperishable Island in the midst of the Mongolia’s Gobi Desert.
