Pentecostal Joy

According to Arthurian legend, it was on Pentecost that the king always gathered his knights at the round table for a feast and a quest.

Goethe, Germany's great poet declared Pentecost "Das Liebliche Fest,“ “The Lovely Feast,” in a in his Reineke Fuchs.

Alexandre Dumas sets the sequel to The Three Musketeers at a feast to celebrate Penecost.

And Shakespeare sets the opening of Romeo and Juliette against the backdrop of Whitsuntide.
