Profile

    Wealthy Israelite owner of tin mines in Cornwall. May have been related to Jesus, and certainly was a disciple and student. He is the noble counselor mentioned in the Gospel of Mark. Provided the tomb for Christ, and with the help of Saint Nicodemus, interred Jesus. Tradition says he brought the Faith and the Holy Grail to England. When he planted his traveller‘s staff in Glastonbury, it took root and became a thorn tree which flowered each Christmas Day.
