Extractions: Giraldus was by turns scholar, courtier, diplomat and would-be crusader; Marcher propagandist, agent of English kings, champion of the Welsh church, hunted outlaw and cathedral theologian. He was also a naturalist, a gossip and an indefatigable traveller, but above all a most prolific writer and a tireless self-publicist. From his seventeen surviving books, therefore, we know a great deal about this determined, irascible, self-righteous and utter fearless man; more, in fact, than about any other inhabitant of early medieval Wales. He was offered, but refused to accept, four other bishoprics in Ireland and Wales and, thus had to content himself with the lesser post of Archdeacon of Brecon. Because of his Norman blood and connection with Welsh royalty, Giraldus was well acquainted with those in power, and had many opportunities to serve at the highest levels of twelfth century society. No doubt, it was in connection with that service that he was at Glastonbury in 1190 to witness the uncovering of a grave, said to be that of King Arthur. He wrote two accounts of this event which are given below. He is generally regarded to be a reliable historian and there is no reason to doubt that he did witness the opening of a grave at the Abbey.

Born in around 1146 at Manorbier Castle in Pembrokeshire , he was of mixed Norman and Welsh blood, his real name being Gerald de Barri. Gerald was a nephew of the Bishop of St David's , and had a church education at Gloucester , followed by a period of study in Paris . His expectations of succeeding his uncle as bishop in were dashed, possibly because of his Welsh blood. Despite this rejection, he became chaplain to King Henry II of England in , and was chosen to accompany one of the king's sons, John , on an expedition to Ireland . This was the catalyst for his literary career, his account of his findings being published as Topographia Hibernica ). He followed it up, shortly afterwards, with an account of Henry's conquest of Ireland. Having thus demonstrated his usefulness, Gerald was selected to accompany the Archbishop of Canterbury , Baldwin of Exeter, on a tour of Wales in , the object being a recruitment campaign for the Third Crusade . His account of that journey, the
Extractions: Some, indeed, object to this my undertaking, and, apparently from motives of affection, compare me to a painter, who, rich in colours, and like another Zeuxis, eminent in his art, is endeavouring with all his skill and industry to give celebrity to a cottage, or to some other contemptible object, whilst the world is anxiously expecting from his hand a temple or a palace. Thus they wonder that I, amidst the many great and striking subjects which the world presents, should choose to describe and to adorn, with all the graces of composition, such remote corners of the earth as Ireland and Wales. What indeed could my feeble and unexercised efforts add to the histories of the destruction of Troy, Thebes, or Athens, or to the conquest of the shores of Latium? Besides, to do what has been already done, is, in fact, to be doing nothing; I have, therefore, thought it more eligible to apply my industry to the arrangement of the history of my native country, hitherto almost wholly overlooked by strangers; but interesting to my relations and countrymen; and from these small beginnings to aspire by degrees to works of a nobler cast. From these inconsiderable attempts, some idea may be formed with what success, should Fortune afford an opportunity, I am likely to treat matters of greater importance. For although some things should be made our principal objects, whilst others ought not to be wholly neglected, I may surely be allowed to exercise the powers of my youth, as yet untaught and unexperienced

His many names reflect the long and multi-faceted career of one of the most fascinating figures of the Middle Ages. Descended from Norman Marcher barons, and Welsh princes, Gerald was by turns scholar, churchman and reformer, courtier, diplomat and would-be crusader; Marcher propagandist, agent of English kings, champion of the Welsh church, hunted outlaw and cathedral theologian.

From his seventeen surviving books, therefore, we know a great deal about this determined, irascible, self-righteous and utter fearless man; more, in fact, than about any other inhabitant of early medieval Wales. B ecause Gerald was endlessly curious, and almost obsessively anxious to record for posterity the things he discovered, his books also paint a remarkably detailed and wide-ranging picture of medieval Wales itself.
