The Thrust of the Holy Lance of Longinus

Historical Blindness
In this episode, after my dive into Grail lore, I explore the rabbit hole that is the Holy Lance of Longinus, another supposed crucifixion relic whose legend takes the researcher on a strange odyssey through disputed scriptures, apocryphal narratives, myths of classical antiquity, hagiographic fictions, and medieval fantasy, all the way to the delusions of modern conspiracy theory.
