It should also be noted that in some of the early sources Arthur was portrayed as being hostile to the church (and vice-versa)
to quote Bernard Cornwalls historical notes at the back of Enemy of God "thus in the Life of St Padarn Arthur is said to have stolen saint's red tunic and only agreed to return it after the saint had buried him up to the neck. Arthur is similarly supposed to have stolen St Crannog's altar to use as a dining table; indeed, in many saints' lives, Arthur is depicted as a tyrant"
