Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0300033605, Paperback)Chivalry--"with its pageants, heraldry, and knights in shining armor--"was a social ideal that had a profound influence on the history of early modern Europe. In this eloquent and richly detailed book, a leading medieval historian discusses the complex reality of chivalry: its secular foundations, the effects of the Crusades, the literature of Knighthood, and its ethos of the social and moral obligations of nobility.
