Inside the box, however, is the ‘book of the holy vessel’ lying on a sacred platter, which Perceval cannot bear to look at because it ‘shone with so great a light’. Here then, uniquely, the Grail is synonymous with a holy ‘book’ of wisdom, and Perceval is the fool who has yet to uncover the meaning of his own destiny. Perceval, the Story of the Grail, by Chrétien de Troyes, is a work which had a great influence on the modern imagination and has grown into one of the world's most cherished symbols of idealism.. With Perceval, Chrétien de Troyes took some earlier legend as starting point. For literary purposes, he veils the meaning and form of the Grail in mystery. The Sangreal is another name for the Holy Grail, a legendary sacred vessel associated with divine revelation, whose origins go back to the Last Supper. In Arthurian legend, the Grail quest represented a heroic and mystic adventure attempted by the Knights of the Round Table and was achieved by Sir Bors, Sir Percival, and Sir Galahad.
