Description

There exist many different versions both of the stories of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and of the High Adventure of the Holy Grail. Frequently, they are treated as simply interesting legends.

Isabel Wyatt bases her approach on the research of Rudolf Steiner. In this fascinating book, she shows how each seemingly insignificant detail of the various stories is, in fact, the earthly reflection of a spiritual reality.
