Description
 
John Matthews (au); Steven Brown (il). Two great narrative themes, which link the sacred & the secular, have been passed down to us from the Dark Ages: the stories of the heroic, godlike Arthur & of a mystic object of quest, the Holy Grail. This is a survey of the origins & merging of these epic themes & stories. It is a richly woven tapestry of myth & legend, & of love & desire -- both sacred & profane. It covers city & temple knights & monks, & ranges far & wide. Matthews has selected from 100+ texts -- some still un-translated & obscure -- to show how the two great themes changed & developed down the centuries as they became inextricably joined. 100+ illustrations, maps & color plates. Includes a retelling of 5 of the traditional stories & a summary of all sources. Bibliography.
