This new edition has a lengthy preface by J. Edward Cornelius, also Magister Templi in the A.'.A.'., explaining the Wagnerian Grail mythos and why Achad's book is so important. The composer Richard Wagner wrote the most influential 'magickal' version of the quest for the Holy Grail which he titled Parsifal. Frater Achad (Charles Stansfeld Jones 1886-1950), a Magister Templi 8=3 in Aleister Crowley's A.'.A.'., published his unique understanding of this play in a book titled The Chalice of Ecstasy (1923).
