It’s been the focus of theological argument for centuries, but two Spanish historians now claim they’ve found the Holy Grail, the cup from which Christ was said to have drunk during the Last Supper.

The location? A church in Leon, in northern Spain.

Margarita Torres and Jose Ortega del Rio, who have spent three years researching the history of the chalice, co-wrote a book released last week entitled “Los Reyes del Grial,” which translates to “The Kings of the Grail,” the Irish Times reported.

In the book, they detail how they believe the 2,000-year-old vessel is contained within another, antique cup known as the Chalice of Dona Urruca, which sits in Leon’s basilica of Saint Isidore. It has been there since the 11th century, the historians claim.
