|somebody's been reading about the cathar heresy, lol, beautiful, wonderfully exquisite imaginings, and, perhaps, mysterious reality, right? a beautiful tribute, you tie together some important elements, although in speaking of those times and places, the beginning of the inquisition and the knights templar, you MUST illuminate the founding of the americas, secret societies, and this country's role in the ongoing mystery to bear as well...in part deaux, perchance? lol well done!|

|A great write. Tales of mystery enrapture because a good story is often loved better than dusty facts and ancient relics. In the end, the surreal truths they hold may not even need a foundation to be of service to the soaring heart.|

|I love this. Mysteries intrigue me and as I grow, the Spirit helps filter out the BS. So much of it matters little in the end. ;-) ~~Nordette|

|Well to begin with...
Mary Magdalene: Could well have been the bride of Jesus. Hence the marriage feat in which Jesus is asked to take care of the wine. Which for an honoured guest, would not be expected of him. It also ties in well with the Templar Knights.
The Knights Templar: Were at odds with the Knights Hospital. Who also saw themselves as the defenders of the pilgrims. Though it was the Knights Templars who started the first cheque system in which pilgrims would hand over money and receive a letter of credit to be cashed in when (or if) they reached the Holy Land. They (Knights Templar) were savagely tortured by the French King for acts of Blasphemy, Heresy, and Demon Worship. Though the real reason was the amassed wealth they had gained over the years. They may have changed into what is now known as the Masonic Lodge of Scotland.
Guinevere and Arthur the King: Good question. Seems some if not most of the tails are based on several archetype of English history. Though the truth may not be fully known. Perhaps digging up their graves and examining the remains would shed some light.
The Ark: There were many replica Arks created. To both keep the peace amongst the tribes of Israel. And to provide spiritual centres for the faithful. They seem to have been made of all sorts of material. Not always keeping to the written dimensions in the Bible. But more in keeping with the material at hand. And the finances of those making them.
Arks? Cups? Blood lines: Well so far I have read the Ark described as being everything from a Chalice used at the last supper. A glass vial used to catch the blood of Jesus. The child Jesus and Mary had. And a small meteorite with some unusual properties. Much like the Philosophers Stone. Open for interpretation. Perhaps.
Cathars and Montsegur: I'm at a loss here. As I had not come across this piece of history. But now that you mentioned it I'll start reading up on it. Sounds like a fascinating area of human experience.
Hope my reply wasn't too long. Just thought your poem deserved something more then a few words…

"Medieval Tales of Mystery" indicates that its author
knows the answer... or at least knows where to get them.
An enjoyable reading from a magnificent writing of poetic-historic
subjects. "Medieval Tales of Mystery" will blink its light through

I haven't had much time to read poetry but I'm so glad I stumbled onto your den this morning. This is fantastic. I've asked so many of the same questions and have a great interest in ancient and medieval history. I recently completed work on a documentary called 'The Kensington Runestone enigma' and I hope you'll take the time to pop into my den and read about it.
Wishing you continued success with your writing.

|... Wish someone would tell me, too... I am almost sitting on top of Glastonbury and Stonehenge and I am none the wiser... to my shame. And, gosh, it freaks me out that, here I am, soaking up the vibes through the very pores of my skin and there you are, sitting wondering about it all... ain't life strange?! :)) TY for making me appreciate, Gwen. Tantalising write. LOL Kate xx|

|Where would you like me start...there is much that should stay hidden and remain a mystery, for the truth is too astounding and would destroy many idea's and concepts we hold dear. Excellent write Gwen.

|Aw, yes, indeedy, history and fables all represent the vision and back-look of those of that generation who are in power. Making it real enough and slanting just a bit to your side, uh, huh, there it all is, a fine mess to try and sort out. Loved the poem.|
