There has been much speculation concerning the truth about King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. The Scots and the Welsh claim this historical figure for their own and both have documentary evidence to prove their point. Into this mix is poured the mythical elements, both ancient and modern, making it difficult to know who’s and who and what is true.
That Arthur existed there can be no doubt.
Geoffrey of Monmouth re-wrote the story of Arthur and the British to suit his Norman Lords and Masters, and in 1485 Malory’s Le Morte D’Arthur became the second book in history to be printed and has remained a best-seller.
But there is so much more to King Arthur and all that he means to us. Arthur represents the manifestation and longing of the land and the people. The Legends[of King Arthur are telling us that in the midst of a corrupt world there is a better way; a way that we may aspire to. And it must also be remembered that Arthur is part of an ancient bloodline that goes back through the lineage of Jesus, and even further back to Atlantis and its High Kings .
The story of Arthur is one of truth and justice, and is an archetype buried deep in the heart of man. Our souls are stirred when we meet others who have been awakened and a Visible and Invisible Lodge of King Arthur is formed.
Born in Guernsey, Hugh le Prevost was inspired to seek the truth, becoming a Lay Minister at an early age and pursuing the practice and teachings of this for many years until, inspired by the philosophy and teachings of Christian Rozenkreuz, he was drawn to travel and the exploration of sacred sites around the world and the wide study of mystical teachings.
Hugh has lived in Glastonbury for 15 years as he continues to lecture and to pursue his studies with appreciation of the rich cultural heritage that Britain has to offer.
