Round Table, in Arthurian legend, the table of Arthur, Britain’s legendary king, which was first mentioned in Wace . This empty place, called the Siege Perilous, could not be occupied without peril except by the destined Grail hero.

Round Table, in Arthurian legend, the table of Arthur, Britain’s legendary king, which was first mentioned in Wace of Jersey’s Roman de Brut (1155). This told of King Arthur’s having a round table made so that none of his barons, when seated at it, could claim precedence over the others.

At the culmination of the Quest for the Holy Grail twelve knights come together at the Grail Castle to participate in the Mass. With the three British knights these twelve fill the Table of the Grail, which Joseph of Aramathie made

At the culmination of the Quest for the Holy Grail twelve knights come together at the Grail Castle to participate in the Mass. This story is from the Vulgate cycle and repeated (better) in Le Morte d’Arthur. In those sources only three knights of Britain succeed: Galahad, Percivale, and Bors. Nine more knights appear out of nowhere, three from each of Gaul (in the east), Ireland (in the west), and Denmark (the north). With the three British knights these twelve fill the Table of the Grail, which Joseph of Aramathie made. The only other knight named is one from Gaul, Claudine the son of Claudas. Claudine appears in some of the Vulgate stories as the good guy from a wicked dynasty.

There exist many different versions both of the stories of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and of the High Adventure of the Holy Grail. Frequently, they are treated as simply interesting legends. Isabel Wyatt bases her approach on the research of Rudolf Steiner. In this fascinating book, she shows how each seemingly insignificant detail of the various stories is, in fact, the earthly reflection of a spiritual reality.
