    From

    Hi,

    Is the "from" necessary here?


    Others were to be seen seated at banquets, with the holy discs before them containing fruit and other foods, which they were eating, and with the holy chalices from which they drank their wine.


    May I have your opinion?

    Re: From

    Yes, you need “from”, either there or at the end of the sentence. We can cut out the middle to make it clearer:

    Others were to be seen … with the holy chalices from which they drank their wine.


    In my opinion, the next sentence is acceptable but clumsier:
    Others were to be seen … with the holy chalices which they drank their wine from.
