BeschreibungThis latest issue of Arthurian Literaturecontinues the tradition of the journal in combining theoretical studies with editions of primary Arthurian texts. There is a special focus on Glastonbury Abbey's involvement in Arthurian legend from the twelfth century on, with a contribution on Guenevere's tomb, an annotated edition of the hitherto unpublished Glastonbury relic list, and the second part of the edition of the fourteenth-century Glastonbury tablets begun in Arthurian Literature 15. The volume also includes a study of the youth of the Grail hero, Percival; an annotated translation of the fourteenth-century De origine gigantum; and an important essay by the leading Tudor historian, DAVID STARKEY, on the waysin which Henry VIIII used Malory's Arthur as a model for Tudor kingship. This is the final issue edited by FELICITY RIDDY and JAMES CARLEY; their successor is KEITH BUSBY. Contributors: CHRISTOPHER YOUNG, CHARLES T. WOOD, JEANNE KROCHALIS, JAMES P. CARLEY, MARTIN HOWLEY, CLAUDE LUTTRELL, DAVID STARKEY, RUTH EVANS
