Saint Augustine

  1. St. Augustine

    A Roman monk sent by Pope Gregorio to convert the English to Christianity in AD 596.

    St. Augustine and his companions entered Britain under the authority of King Aethelbert of Kent and established the church at Canterbury.

    Though he lived a century after the Arthurian period, the Prose Tristan says that he converted Lyonesse and Cornwall to Christianity several generations before Arthur's time.

  2. St. Augustine's Chapel
    Chapel of St. Augustine

    In Perlesvaus, this chapel stood in an enchanted forest near Arthur's Cardueil court. Arthur experiences a spiritual rebirth at St. Augustine's chapel in the White Forest.

    One of the Black Knights guarded the glade around the Chapel of St. Augustine. He killed Cahus, Arthur's squire, and was in turn slain by Arthur.
