This book offers the first comprehensive and analytical account of the development of Arthurian scholarship from the eighteenth century, or earlier, to the present day. The chapters, each written by an expert in the area under discussion, present scholarly trends and evaluate major contributions to the study of the numerous different strands which make up the Arthurian material: origins, Grail studies, editing and translation of Arthurian texts, medieval and modern literatures (in English and European languages), art and film. The result is an indispensable resource for students and a valuable guide for anyone with a serious interest in the Arthurian legend.

pour le deuxième chapitre retraçant les différentes hypothèses sur les origines du Graal.
Assez fin dans l'analyse. la conclusion finale est que le Graal est une invention de CHrétien qui a écrit une pure fiction ( un roman quoi...)
