In regards to that long-ago post, I found a reference which
might be of interest to the original poster :
"Women of the Celts", by Jean Markale (ISBN 0-89281-150-l)
This book has a chapter (which I didn't quite read yet) entitled
"the Grail, and Woman".
Let me know if you can't find the book. I have it at home, and could
probably copy the chapter, and snail-mail it to you...
