EXHIBITION: PATHS OF THE GRAIL
The Almudín (the old granary) located next to the Plaza de la Virgen will house Paths of the Grail, an exhibition that outlines the route taken by the Holy Chalice, from the celebration of the Last Supper in Jerusalem in the first century A.D., up to its arrival in Valencia on 18 March 1437, brought by King Alfonso the Magnanimous.
The exhibition, divided into various sections, narrates the journey of the Holy Chalice up to its arrival in the capital that overlooks the River Turia. The subject of relics is also touched upon and there is a section addressing the various types of chalice that have arisen throughout history.
Paths of the Grail also focuses on the evolution of the Holy Grail, which was afforded protagonism in Renaissance painting, providing the subject matter for various Valencian masters, including Juan de Juanes, amongst others.
The grail first began to be venerated in the 16th century by Saint Juan de Ribera, Archbishop of Valencia, who introduced the fiesta of the Holy Chalice, held on the last Thursday of October.
Since 1916, the relic has been housed in the Chapel of the Holy Chalice, although it was removed during the Spanish Civil War for safekeeping and in 1959, when it was brought to San Juan de la Peña, where it had been housed prior to reaching Valencia. The chalice was also removed from its chapel in 1982 and 2006, when it was used in the Eucharist by Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI, during a visit to Spain and the V Meeting of Families, respectively.
Visit the exhibition and discover the mysterious history of the Grail.
From March 24 to June 7, 2015
