King Arthur &

The Knights of The Round Table

 

 

King Arthur's Round Table has become a symbol for equality and just government.

 

Geoffrey of Monmouth makes no mention of a Round Table in his History of Arthur.

 

It was the French monk Robert Wace, writing around 1155, who was the first to mention this piece of furniture in his Roman de Brut. Supposed Round Tables sites in Britain include in Bryn-Rhyd-yr-Arian, Caerleon, Penrith, Stirling, and

Winchester.

 

Wace says that Arthur's knights sat around a round table while Arthur sat on a dais, above the Round Table. The idea here was that the knights were all equal but Arthur was still the king. Wace doesn't tell us how many knights sat around

the table.

 

A few years later, an Englishman named Layamon in his chronicle places Arthur's court in London. The Round Table is portrayed the result of a chance meeting between Arthur and a Cornish carpenter, who offers to make for the king a table

that could seat 1,600 men and be folded up and taken anywhere.

 

Allowing two feet for each person seated, this would give us  a circumference of 3200 feet and a diameter of 1019 feet which is about the length of 3 football pitches.

 

Robert de Boron tells us how Merlin ordered Uther Pendragon to construct the table based on his vision of the Last Supper Table and Joseph of Arimathea's Grail Table.

 

Merlin instructed Uther to have the table accommodate 50 chairs; he also said to leave one chair blank, for the knight who would fulfill the Grail Quest. The Vulgate Cycle says the Round Table sat 250 knights.

 

The Vulgate Cycle introduces the idea of the Siege Perilous, continuing the empty-chair theory but adding to it the caveat that anyone not anointed would perish after sitting there. Galahad, of course, was the only one able to sit there; it was he who fulfilled the Grail Quest.

 

The Siege Perilous is the seat (from the French sičge) at the Round Table in which only the chosen Grail knight may sit without disastrous consequences. Malory tells us that it was made by Merlin ). When Galahad arrives at Camelot,

his name appears on the seat destined for him.

Lentil burgers, a thousand press ups before breakfast and

subject by a Student of Katherine Tingley entitled

Concerns about the fate of the wildlife as

Tekels Park is to be Sold to a Developer

 

Concerns are raised about the fate of the 

wildlife as The Spiritual Retreat, 

Tekels Park in Camberley, Surrey, 

England is to be sold to a developer.

 

Tekels Park is a 50 acre woodland park, 

purchased for the Adyar Theosophical 

Society in England in 1929.

 

In addition to concern about the park, 

many are worried about the future 

of the Tekels Park Deer as they 

are not a protected species.

 

Confusion as the Theoversity moves out of 

Tekels Park to Southampton, Glastonbury & 

Chorley in Lancashire while the leadership claim

that the Theosophical Society will carry on using 

Tekels Park despite its sale to a developer

 

Anyone planning a “Spiritual” stay at the

Tekels Park Guest House should be aware of the sale.
