Brother Copas is a novel (1911) by "Q" (Sir Arthur Quiller Couch), set in King Alfred's ancient capital city of Winchester (where hangs, in the cathedral, what is reputed to be the Round Table of King Arthur and his knights). This novel deals with the planning and presentation of a pageant, an instance of the genre of "new pageantry", by the brothers and staff of Saint Cross Hospice, that ancient institution which lies in the water-meadows below Winchester College.
