It would be nice to get a little clarification about the smoking chalice vs the drinking chalice. What does the smoking chalice look like? Is the Rastafarian smoking chalice one only called a chalice because it's used in religious ceremonies like the drinking chalice?
This has been moved from the main article to the talk page until there is research showing this as an actual use of the term:
- The downward pointing triangle is sometimes referred to as the chalice. It is the symbol of water (as it flows downward), the grace of heaven, and the womb. it is one of the most ancient symbols of female divinity.
The definitions of "chalice" on dictionary.com did not include this definition. If "chalice" can in fact mean this, it needs to be verifiable by a reliable resource. Also, if a reliable resource is found, this symbol should be clearly designated from the commonly understood definitions of "chalice". It should be separated either under a separate heading or placed in a separate article by itself. JBogdan 03:00, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
I have a broader question about definition...why is the Catholic church the only ones defining (or, apparently, being allowed to define) a drinking vessel, and what it represents? Movieman894 08:36, 8 December 2006 (UTC)

Da Vinci Code
The use of the word chalice in the Da Vinci Code is not an etymology, if it was meant to have been an etymology does it not make sense that it would be under wiktionary or under the heading of etymology? If you really must have it changed then i suggest changing the heading to use in popular culture. Grey witch 21:07, 17 January 2007 (UTC)
Around here (NL/BE), (special) beer glasses for Trappist beer are also called chalices. They also have that form, http://www.beerables.net/chimay_belgian_trappist_chalice_glass.aspx 126.96.36.199 (talk) 16:58, 14 July 2013 (UTC)
- I've noticed the term gaining some currency in that particular usage recently in the United States as well (mostly pushed by advertising but also used in tasting contexts). Wilhelm Meis (☎ Diskuss | ✍ Beiträge) 17:54, 14 July 2013 (UTC)
