Starting from a rigorous study that tries to delimit what is legendary and real around the Table of Solomon, the author focuses his attention on the notable influence that Egyptian mysteries had on Jewish-Christian exegesis and on the search for and idealization of archetypal objects.
We trace the itinerary that on a historical basis seemed to follow the so-called Table of Solomon after the destruction of the second temple, to end up transporting us to a magical and heterodox Toledo linked to the Greek literary cycle of Perceval, where, regarding the Table, legends such as The Enchanted Palace and the Cave of Hercules arose.
The author turns to Arab, Christian, Hebrew and even esoteric and apocryphal chronicles to propose an unexpected ending, which has as its scenario one of the most enigmatic Templar encomiendas on the Peninsula: the third Bailía de Montalbán.
