This book gave a fascinating account of medieval myths from the point of view of a Victorian Anglican clergyman.
Baring Gould exhibits considerable historical research; he endeavours, mainly successfully, to distinguish fact from legend.
His most interesting chapter is that on the Sangreal, which provides a fascinating comparison with recent publications on the subject, such as "The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail" by Baigent, Leigh and Lincoln.
Gould's other topics are equally well researched an provide interesting and informative reading.
It is a very useful book for anyone wanting to know the mythical and cultural background of medieval man.
