The Green Chapel

Beast Fables - Comic 72 - Rey finds the Green Knight's chapel and is surprised it is a cave!

Medieval Moment: If you wonder how Rey could so easily identify the Green Chapel, you need to know that she’s very up-to-date on the latest scholarship. That, and maybe she watched this video by Michael Smith. Smith believes that a cave above Wetton Mill must be what the author of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight was thinking of when he was writing about the Green Chapel. We’ll never know whether this is true or not, but there is a certain amount of romance in the idea that the poem was based on real-life locations in the author’s life. Either way, the article below is worth a glance if you want to know more.
