“The Holy Grail”

“The Holy Grail”

Dear Members,

This is a small reminder from our friends at the Association of International Women in Malta, who will be hosting their next lecture at the RMYC on Thursday, April 25th

This month’s AIWM lecture is entitled: ‘The Holy Grail ’ and will be given by Dr Dane Munro . Dr Munro will share his contribution to an EU-funded project about localising ideas surrounding the origins of the Holy Grail and converting them into a tourist trail. As the saying goes ‘Do not let the truth stand in the way of a good story!’ and in this vein Dr Munro will tell us a fantastic story, in which the Holy Grail is actually a Maltese Neolithic stone cup given to a deserving person, and like the World Cup, handed over from one to another. It ended up on the table at the Last Supper and was brought back to Malta by the Knights Hospitallers as keepers of the Holy Grail, rather than the Templars. Since the lips of Christ had touched the Holy Grail, it became the most coveted object in the world!  Dr Munro Ph.D., KM, is a Resident Academic at the Institute for Tourism, Travel and Culture (ITTC) at the University of Malta
