Literature: The King Arthur Story parallels Martel's life that it may well
have been influenced by it. Real names and events have formed other fiction and great
literature from this peroid. It is now known that Mallory based King Arthur on French
Stories, which may well have been based on Martel.
Religion: The lance is a presumed religious relic dating from Calvary. The
interplay of Christianity, Druidism and Islam give a picture of the religious
struggle for the souls of men, complete with real letters to Martel from the Pope.
