Augustinian Intrusions in the Queste del Saint Graal: Converting ‘Pagan Gold’ to Christian Currency
By Dolores Warwick Frese
Arthuriana, Vol. 18:1 (2008)
Abstract: Galahad’s literary debut in the Vulgate Queste del Saint Graal displays ley-lines extrapolated from Augustine’s biography, theology, semiotic theory, and polemical controversies, suggesting that this retro-fitted prose fiction can be read productively as a specifically Augustinian confection.
