Parsifal Eschenbach's Grail

Returning to Eschenbach’s tale, Parsifal is led into a cavern by Trevrizent to initiate him into the mystery of the Grail:

To a grotto his host led him,
Where hardly a breath of wind ever came
There, was a robe: his host
Put it on him and then led him
Into a nearby cell.
Eschenbach must have been curiously well informed as to the whereabouts of the Grail because on the strength of information provided to him by master Kyot he writes:
Eraclius or Hercules,
Then the Greek Alexander,
For they are all familiar with
The stones …
… There stood, also, according to the custom of time,
The altar, exposed thereon was the jewelcase.

In a monastery of Loudun, France , founded in 1334, several Carmelite brothers left their names engraved in a staircase, which has for this reason been named the staircase of the graffiti. Among the names of these brethren is that of a Brother Guyot, who added to his signature a rose overlaid by a sinistroverse swastika. The correspondences between the name of Brother Guyot and Eschenbach’s Kyot, sage and mentor of Parsifal are remarkable.
