San Galgano, Toscana

About 40 kilometers south-east of Siena in an isolated valley, lies an antique Medieval Cistercense Abbey, now desecrated. About ten minute walking up, there is a small circular chapel where one of the most fascinating and mysterious relics: the sword in the stone. The cross-shaped sword has been proven to date back to 1170. In the chapel there are even some frescos from the 1300's which depict the chapel itself. The sight, to say the least, is evocative and immediately brings to mind the well-known legend of King Arthur and his sword in the stone. That's not a coincidence. The legend says that one night Galgano had a vision of the archangel Michael. The archangel was guiding him down a narrow and difficult path to Montesiepi where he was eventually greeted by the twelve apostles in front of a circular-shaped temple. Galgano interpreted this vision to be a sign of the divine wish of God.

That sword is still there and has served as a symbol of an incorruptible conversion for the last 800 years. Aside from the utter amazement of the sword, there is another extraordinary aspect to this story. This is the possibility that the myth of the sword in the stone, known for being tied to the saga of Britain's King Arthur, could have originated right here in Tuscany and later have been exported to France to become the famous legend of King Arthur. Some factors make this hypothesis a plausible reality. Both the Cistercense Abbey and the chapel dedicated to Saint Galgano are of the same time period of King Arthur's tomb in Glastonbury.

This discovery must have resonated throughout Europe. From history we know that the "Cistercense" Monks were the key divulgers of King Arthur's story. We must ask ourselves if the Monks were responsible for dispersing the echo of Arthur's legend in Tuscany or rather, was the story born in Tuscany and later adopted into Britain's history. Before leaving you I'd like to remind you about some 15th century's paintings by Taddeo di Bartolo which are kept in the National Museum in Pisa, depicting the life of Saint Galgano.
