The Mystery of the Grail: Initiation and Magic in the Quest for the Spirit

This book originally formed an appendix to the author's Revolt Against the Modern World, which he later expanded into a book in its own right. Evola's thesis is that the Grail Cycle forms a Pagan “northern” mystery distinct from the “southern” Christian religion, and that this represented an Imperial “resistance” to the Church in the Middle Ages. I am not entirely convinced of this, but there is much interesting analysis of the Grail legends in here.
