From the back sleave:
'While we have all heard of King Arthur, few will have come across the name King Lucius, yet in this second-century king we find another fascinating British figure who seems to exist somewhere between the realm of myth and history. Although a prominent figure of historical, political and religious significance for seventeen centuries, Lucius was dismissed by scholars at the turn of the twentieth century as a myth and gradually lost his place in the collective memory of the British people. In this new interpretive book, David J. Knight seeks to rectify this situation and revisits the story of Lucius to look again at the evidence for his existence. Particularly important is the idea that Lucius was the first king from the British Isles to request formal baptism into Christianity from the Pope himself, an idea that would have major ramifications for the history of Christianity in Britain. What is revealed by this unique study is the absorbing story of a figure who deserves to be reinstated to his rightful place in British conciousness'.
