A pair of historians recently claimed that a chalice in a Spanish church is really the Holy Grail. Here’s The Guardian:
The two historians – León University medieval history lecturer Margarita Torres and art historian José Manuel Ortega del Rio – identified it as the grail in their book, Kings of the Grail, published last week.
They said two Egyptian parchments they found in 2011 at Cairo’s University of al-Azhar set them on a three-year investigation.
Their studies led them to identify the upper part of the princess’s goblet, made of agate and missing a fragment as described in the parchments, as the grail – one of the most prized relics in Christianity.
Good Morning America and Inside Edition got archaeologist and blogger Robert Cargill to comment. Inside Edition put up this really excellent extended clip of his comments:
