Merlin, Arthur, Galahad, Lancelot - the names conjure images of knights in armor during the age of chivalry. When Le Morte D'Arthur was first published in 1485, it was the first time the mélange of medieval tales had been given unity, form, and the English language. Sir Thomas Malory, an English knight born in the early 1400s, wrote Le Morte D'Arthur - a set of 8 romances having to do with King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table - when he was in Newgate Gaol. The Holy Grail is one of the most famous. Download and start listening now!

    " Interesting but not compelling.
    It was interesting due to the fact that I learned that the kernel of legend dealing with King Author and his court of the round table was drenched in medieval Christianity.

    " The tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, minus King Arthur. You get a since of how deep religious teaching impacted on the in their day. And you also understand the code and the knight and what it meant to be a knight. "
