Product description

"Excellent" Fortean Times Mary Caine, intrigued by the fantastic tales in the lives of some of the Celtic Saints of Britain felt that they could hardly be the result of unbridled Celtic imagination alone, and demand another explanation. Much pre-Christian solar and lunar myth appears in these tales, and from her long study of the Glastonbury Zodiac, Mary has found many parallels to its figures embedded in these tales. Katherine Maltwood, who found this Temple of the Stars in the Vale of Avalon, was convinced that it is the original Round Table, with Arthur himself and his chief knights still seated upon it, long forgotten, as the signs of the Zodiac. More, that this mysterious great circle is the fount and origin of all Arthurian and Grail myth. The mediaeval Grail-questing knights were not only seeking themselves in the ancient astrological system of psychology - they were searching too for the effigies on the ground, by their time long lost through successive invasions and only dimly remembered in Celtic poems and folk-lore. Arthur appears in several saint?s lives and is related to some of them, and as the ancient Abbey of Glastonbury not only claims his grave, but also to be the first centre of Celtic Christianity in Britain, perhaps it is not surprising to find traces of more primeval Mysteries shining through the lives of these early saints; some forty-five of these appear here.
