King Arthur: History, Legend and Political Propaganda

Tuesday 4 October 2022, 2.00PM to 4:00pm

Speaker(s): Cristina Figueredo BA MA PhD

King Arthur’s deeds became known across Europe through a twelfth-century chronicle by Geoffrey of Monmouth; the historical Arthur had appeared in a ninth-century document. For centuries, Arthur’s life and image have been resurrected to suit the political needs of a number of English monarchs. By studying medieval literary documents and art, this course will examine the historical Arthur and the ways in which the Arthurian legend has been utilised again and again as political propaganda.
