One of the most famous British legends is that of King Arthur and the sword in the stone.⁣⁣⁣ According to the various versions of the story, the sword could only be pulled out of the stone by the true king of England.⁣⁣⁣ A similar, though much less well-known, story can be found in the Italian region of Tuscany, and has even been suggested by some as the inspiration for the British legend. This is the sword in the stone of San Galgano.⁣⁣⁣ San Galgano is reported to be the first saint whose canonisation was conducted through a formal process by the Church. Consequently, much of the San Galgano’s life is known through the documents of this canonisation process, which was carried out in 1185, just a few years after his death.⁣⁣⁣ Repost: @arkeomega You can also follow me at @collectivespark #archeology #history #archeologia #ancient #today #archaeology #travel #egypt #architecture #arqueologia #ancienthistory #museum #italy #photography #archeologie #arkeoloji #heritage #italia #ancientegypt #archaeologist #travelphotography #roma #archeologylovers #morning #egyptology #egyptian #ig #rome #arch #sword
