The cup of Christ was hidden on the Old Kingdom of Leon for a thousand years


Jesús María López de Uribe / Translation: Cesar González

As incredible as it may seem, the first goblet considered by the Christians to belong to Jesus Christ, was hidden in León (Spain) for almost a thousand years. This is the most relevant conclusion taken from the investigation supported by Monteleon Foundation that has helped the investigators Margarita Torres-Sevilla and José Miguel Ortega to carry out their scientific observations.

Margarita Torres-Sevilla Quiñones de León along with the historian José Miguel Ortega del Río have presented an extraordinary scientific investigation that proves this goblet to be considered since 400A.D. the first attached to Jesus. In fact, it has been located in León (Spain) since 1054 and it is actually part of Doña Urraca's Goblet. The object that we are referring to is precisely the upper part of the goblet that can be seen in the picture above.

More than three years were necessary to accomplish the investigation that surged when these two investigators wondered why there was an carved silver vizier's Egyptian chest from the 11th Century in San Isidoro's basilica in León. This fact is what led them to look into a pair of parchments in El Cairo that surprisingly reported about the removal of the Messiah goblet which used to rest in a small church on the outskirts of Jerusalem. Basically, the history tells that the Egyptian Vizier donated the 'precious object' to the Denia's emir with the purpose of the latter to finally give it to the Leon's King of the era: 'Ferdinand Al Kabir' in order to enforce the relationship between them.

The cited occurrence, guided the researchers to look into the origin of Doña Urraca's goblet more deeply, finding out that the upper part of the goblet matches with a Romanic piece referring to the “Ritterling Hofheim” archaeological typology dated between the years 40 B.C. and 70 A.D. This probably was the piece used by the wealthy Joseph of Arimathea in what is called the Last Supper, one of the main paints that are reflected in the King's Cript of San Isidoro's basilica in León. Oddly enough, in this paint there was no goblet but on the other hand we can see the twelve apostles holding a small cup. The reasons why we have such missing goblet was ever a mystery, until this astounding discovery.

Three years of research, in the book 'The Kings of the Grial'

In conclusion, the investigators can prove the upper part of Doña Urraca's goblet is the original piece referring to the first venerated Cup of Christ at the Church of Holy Sepulchre towards 400 A.C. So, with this historical astounding discovery, the security of San Isidoro's Museum has been increased by the Council of the city, as this piece used to be visible to everyone who wanted to come and see. It has been there hundreds of years with almost no safeness.

Margarita Torres-Sevilla and José Miguel Ortega presented today in the Capital of the Old Hispanic Kingdom of Leon their book 'The Kings of the Grail' that will show the three year investigation in Spain and Egypt that discover the most seeked object of the Cristianity. The mistery of the cup of Christ revealed: was 'hidden' at eyesight of every one who look at the 'Doña Urraca's Goblet' since siecles in the San Isidoro's basilica, also the first parliament of the Ancien Régime. Like one of the misteries of Sherlock Holmes or in 'The Purloined Letter' of Edgar Allan Poe. May be it seems joking, referring to an artifact considered the Holy Grail in the Arturic Myths, but it's the unrevealed truth of the cup of Christ hidden on a forgotten realm in Hispania a thousand years ago.
