St. Joseph of Arimathea At Glastonbury

Britain is proverbially rich in monuments of the past, but among ancient places with outward arid visible links with antiquity the little Somerset town of Glastonbury is unique. It is not only rich in visible evidence, wrought in stone, of generations long departed, but steeped in fascinating legend and tradition. One of the most widespread of these ancient stories is that circling around the figure of St. Joseph of Arimathea. It is said that he came to Britain as a metal merchant seeking tin, accompanied by none other than the boy Jesus. According to another and later tradition, Glastonbury is the very cradle of English Christianity where an infant church was planted by those who personally knew Our Lord. As the centuries passed, other legends, of King Arthur, the Round Table, and the Holy Grail, attached themselves to the town and its great Abbey. In St Joseph of Arimathea at Glastonbury, L.S. Lewis, Vicar of Glastonbury for more than three decades, sets them in their context.
