From the introduction by Neville Coventry (1951): “Let no one thing this booklet a work of peculiar or fantastic piety or of mere archaeology. Behind the faith in St. Michael there is an age-long experience of the Christian Church and even of the human race. To this truth Major Tudor Pole’s article directs us.”
Tudor Pole writes in this booklet: “The writer of these notes is of no account and possesses no authority to guide the footsteps of his fellows, he himself is the very least of those who would wish to aid St. Michael in his great Mission for our Age and Time.”
After being out of print, this booklet was republished by the Chalice Well Trust in June 2013.
