Galahad Galahad tries to fuse the legendary medieval and Victorian Christian, and the Order of Atlanta. He first appeared in the French Vulgate cycle. It is deeply rooted in the romantic tales of the Middle Ages, the incarnation of Christianity and the knight, and the symbol of the Bible. Le Morte d'Arthur of Thomas Thomas Mallory insisted on the typical Cavalier Gallahard as the embodying medieval virtues. In addition, in the 19th century when the legendary person reappeared, Garahad became a symbol of Victorian moral purity in the works of Alfred, Lord Tennyson, and former Raphaeli painters.
The picture on the right is taken from Arthur's romantic Wurgate cycle (also known as the Lancelot-Grail cycle) in the 15th century French manuscript; the crown part is called Questester del Santo Graal Yes. In this article, both Perceval and Galahad are participants in the (successful) Grail mission, but Galahad has become a big figure. This page explains the background of the story about Parseval and other medieval Holy Grail. I have created a page summarizing Galahad and the French version of the Quest event.
Up to c, in 1210 the romance of King Arthur of the mainland was mainly expressed through poetry; since this date these stories began to be told in prose. The most important of these 13 th century prose romance is the Vulgate Cycle (also known as Lancelot - Grail Cycle), which is five French central prose written in the first half of the century. These works form the first consistent version of Arthuri's entire legend with Estoire del Saint Grail, Estoire de Merlin, Lancelot propre (or Prose Lancelot, which occupies half of the whole Vulgate cycle, Queste del Saint Graal, Mort Artu) doing. . This cycle continues to tend to reduce the role of Arthur in his own legend by introducing the role of Garahad in part and expanding the role of Merlin. In the meantime, Arthur became a group of one of nine heroes, three infidels, three Jews and three Christian knights.
