GAWAIN: KNIGHT OF THE GODDESS
Imprint: Aquarian Press. Publication Date: 8 March 1990. Price: œ12.99
Gawain was once the most important knight at Arthur's court, a shining
example of all that was best in chivalry at the time. However, as the
popularity of the Arthurian romances grew, the character of Gawain
diminished, leaving him represented as a villain rather than a
Champion of the Goddess. How this transformation came about, and the
reasons why, are explored here by John Matthews.
GAWAIN: KNIGHT OF THE GODDESS is the result of more than 20 years'
research into Arthurian and Celtic texts and it presents a unique view
of the mythology of Britain and its connections with the historical
changes which took place of a period of many hundreds of years in the
religious and mystical traditions of the country.
