The History of King Arthur’s Legend in a Spiritual Spotlight

Why put a spiritual spotlight on the history of the King Arthur legend? Because his legend has a secret, spiritual dimension. We also connect a few interesting historical dots.

Let’s begin with some records about the history of King Arthur. In 550 BCE, the writer Gilda mentions a Roman centurion with the name Lucius Artorius Castus in his book De Excidio et Conquestu Britanniae. He recounts the Briton’s and Roman’s victory⁠ over the Picts (2) in the third century at a place called Mt. Badon. (1) It is uncertain whether Artorius and King Arthur are one and the same person. Some believe that Lucius lived in the 2nd century. 

250 years later the Celtic monk and historian Nennius refers to Artorius in his book Historia Brittonum.    

The History of the Britons in 900 A.D., whose author was probably a Welsh monk, tells the story of a warrior called Arthur. He overcame the Saxons in twelve battles. Twelve is significant in Alchemy and Astrology. It’s the number of the zodiac signs and the twelve stages of the great work. Arthur gets his first spiritual touch.
