Did Jesus Come to Britain?

An Investigation into the Traditions that Christ Visited Cornwall and Somerset

Glyn Lewis

104 pp.

Published:  May 2008


The many traditions and legends of Jesus’ travels to Britain are deeply impressed into English culture, owing especially to famous allusion by William Blake. These tales tell that, while still a boy, Jesus accompanied his uncle, Joseph of Arimathea—an importer/exporter of metals—on expeditions to Cornwall to engage in the tin trade. Later, it is said that Jesus made additional trips to visit the location of the Druid school of learning, Glastonbury. Though charming and romantic, do such stories have any historical foundation?

Using the work of fellow researchers as his starting point, Lewis studies the locations that Jesus supposedly visited—from Cornwall to Somerset—producing striking evidence combined with his fine photography, along with useful maps. Lewis’s combines original research with broad and insightful analysis of the existing material, making a convincing case for Jesus indeed having walked “upon England’s mountains green.”
