The Grail legend is one of the most famous mysteries the world has ever known. This 78-card Tarot deck with spectacular Renaissance-style art relates to the quest for this sacred Christian relic and connects it to our desire to understand the puzzles within our own lives. Characters drawn from over 2,000 years of fascinating Grail history—including the enigmatic Knights Templar, one of the most influential groups of the Middle Ages—take their place in the Major Arcana. The suits are represented by the four Grail Hallows: Stone, Sword, Lance, and Vessel. Discover the symbolism and stories of the Grail as a universal and potent representation of the search for truth, and find how to connect them with your own spiritual quest.
