The Silver Chalice is an English language historical novel by Thomas B. Costain. Its the fictional story of the making of a silver chalice to hold the Holy Grail (itself here conflated with the Holy Chalice) & includes 1st century biblical & historical figures: Luke, Peter, Joseph of Arimathea, Simon Magus & his companion Helena. The story was inspired by the archeological discovery of a 1st-century silver chalice in Antioch. Its in effect a prequel to the Arthurian Legend, where the search for the Holy Grail plays a conspicuous part.

Two years after publication, Warner Bros. released a feature adaptation of the book. The film starred Paul Newman, in his 1st studio role, as Basil the craftsman. First published in 1952, this classic recounts the story of Basil, a young silversmith, whos commissioned by the apostle Luke to fashion a holder for the cup Jesus used at the Last Supper.
