I only own the edit. The movie belongs to its owners.

As Milton would concur, "choose wisely."

Thank you, Sara van den Berg!
ps What a lovely conception: "wooden chalices and golden priests." But I wonder if chalices ever were made of wood.

Miltpon refers to "the Communion Chalice" in Eikonoklastes.3.558.3 (Stern and Kollmeier, Prose Concordance).
He also attacks the change from "wooden chalices and golden priests" in "former times" to '"golden Chalices and wooden Priests" (Of Reformation 1.557.15-16).  Elsewhere he declares, "For golden chalices and wooden Priests, thank your selves" (Animadversions  1.717.23).

There are no examples of "grail" in Milton's prose, but the Concordance lists several references to "cup." I don't know if any o them would be useful to you.

Does Milton anywhere mention chalice, cup, grail?
