Sovereigns of the Grail

This is an abridged English-language version of the lecture given in German in Dornach at Pentecost 2023 when Marion and I attended the International Grail Conference. I shortened this lecture and changed a few things for a North American audience in order to fit it into the time allowed for our Section meeting that occured on September 16, 2023. 

The lecture will be published in German at Easter in the magazine Stil, a publication of the Section for the Literary Arts and Humanities and the Section for the Visual Arts.
