THE PASSING OF KING ARTHUR AND CHURCH PAGEANTRY AT MOUNT GRACE

THE PASSING OF KING ARTHUR AND CHURCH PAGEANTRY AT MOUNT GRACE

The legendary figure of King Arthur, the famous British king or chief, is one singularly fitted to be recalled in modern pageantry. At Taunton (bottom) he is seen being carried on a bier by the Knights of the Round Table to his burial in the island of Avalon after being mortally wounded in battle. In the ruins of the Carthusian priory at Mount Grace, near Northallerton, Yorkshire, a pageant depicting scenes in its history was given in September, 1927. This episode (top) depicts Richard II, uncle of the founder, Thomas Duke of Surrey, at the dedication in 1396.
