Holy Grail

(derivation of “grail” uncertain). Term applied to a dish, possibly the chalice, used at the institution of the Lord's Supper. Origins of legends about it are lost in the midst of the mists of mystery. Many romances have been woven about the quest of the grail and about the hist. of the vessel.
