You can as easily start from either premise: Arthur was pagan, or Arthur
was Christian. Or you could use the premise that he was a mixture of
both, since the Celtic church was much more open to other beliefs than
was the Roman church (and OH how different the world might be if the
Celtic, not the Roman, church had become dominant!) ... but verifying any
of these notions is durned near impossible without some dramatic new
evidence coming to light.
