Access options available:. By Nigel Saul. Cambridge, Mass. He not only analyzes the development of chivalry as a military code of behavior for the aristocracy, but he also considers the cultural and political aspects of knighthood.
By doing so, he provides an important account of how chivalry extended well beyond the battlefield and helped to shape the cosmology of the medieval nobility. The work is largely structured chronologically.
In the first part, he considers the development of chivalry during the High Middle Ages. He then pauses to consider the relationship of chivalry to other aspects of medieval society, from economics to literature. He then finishes with a discussion of the decline of chivalry in the late thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. In the first part, Saul outlines the factors for the development and expansion of chivalry in England, arguing that chivalry began in England in with the Norman Conquest of William I the Conqueror.
His principal examples are William Marshal, whose success in tournaments resulted in the wealth and status needed to win high royal favor and influence, and Richard the Lionheart, who successfully used warfare to legitimize increases in royal prerogatives.
In the next few chapters, Saul considers how knighthood was reinforced by Church and state. In chapter 3, Saul considers how knighthood was idealized and Christianized so as to confer divine sanction on warfare. In the period from to , he examines the decline in knights due to changing economic and social conditions, such as their desire to display their status through finery and moated manor homes, and the growing division between knights and magnates.
Chivalry was then reinforced by Edward I to serve his military needs. When offering to pay knights for service failed, Edward recognized that honor might be a more powerful incentive.
By popularizing tournaments and reviving Arthurian legends, he greatly encouraged knight participation in his campaigns by raising the status of doing so. These trends are continued in chapter 6, which examines the period from to Edward III, likewise, saw value in prompting chivalry among his knights, as evidenced by the creation of the Order of the Garter, and he took it further by having it confirmed by God in the cult of St. Having outlined the early history of chivalry, Saul turns his attention to a series of chapters that engage in different aspects of chivalry.
Saul examines the economics of knightly warfare both as a reflection of desires for material wealth and as evidence for chivalric prowess. He then considers the rules or laws of chivalry.
In addition to outlining the development of formal codes, he also argues that earlier norms regarding appropriate violence were effective in restraining behavior because of the high value and honor associated with chivalry. Paradoxically, the value placed on avoiding battle meant that harrying of villages and peasants was common in the actual practice of warfare.
In chapter 9, Saul explains why knighthood and nobility were initially joined in the High Middle Ages but knighthood declined in esteem in the Later Middle Ages. Part of the reason for this is that the lineage reflected in a coat of arms could be inherited in easier ways than knighthood, and knighthood carried military obligations that one might wish to avoid.
It is also partly due the growth of the gentry, who were distinct from the nobility. Saul then analyzes the complex relationship between chivalry and violence. While chivalry promoted heroic violence as proof of manliness and prowess, it also imposed restraint by prioritizing the values of courtliness Project MUSE promotes the creation and dissemination of essential humanities and social science resources through collaboration with libraries, publishers, and scholars worldwide.

William Marshal, 1st Earl of Pembroke
Knighted in , he spent his younger years as a knight errant and a successful tournament competitor; Stephen Langton eulogised him as the "best knight that ever lived. In , he was appointed protector for the nine-year-old Henry III, and regent of the kingdom. Before him, his father's family held a hereditary title of Marshal to the king, which by his father's time had become recognised as a chief or master Marshalcy, involving management over other Marshals and functionaries. William became known as "the Marshal", although by his time much of the function was delegated to more specialised representatives as happened with other functions in the King's household. Because he was an Earl, and also known as the Marshal, the term " Earl Marshal " was commonly used and this later became an established hereditary title in the English Peerage.

Emotions and War pp Cite as. Set against the background of ongoing conflicts between the Capetian king Philip II of France and his great rivals, Henry II of England and his sons Richard and John, the poem is an invaluable source for the political and cultural history of the period. Warfare, both serious and recreational, forms a central motif as William Marshal develops into a figure of unmatched chivalric prowess. While his skills on the battlefield and on the tournament circuit are duly celebrated, the poem offers a far more complex picture of medieval warfare and its emotional repercussions than simple hero-worship would allow. The absence of peace and the advent of war could be construed as a direct result of emotional excess envy, pride , while military successes and failures could be shown as both reflecting and bringing forth emotional crises on the part of participants.
Chivalry , or the chivalric code , is an informal and varying code of conduct developed between and It was associated with the medieval Christian institution of knighthood ;  knights' and gentlemen's behaviours were governed by chivalrous social codes. The ideals of chivalry were popularized in medieval literature , particularly the literary cycles known as the Matter of France , relating to the legendary companions of Charlemagne and his men-at-arms , the paladins , and the Matter of Britain , informed by Geoffrey of Monmouth 's Historia Regum Britanniae , written in the s, which popularized the legend of King Arthur and his knights of the Round Table. The code of chivalry that developed in medieval Europe had its roots in earlier centuries. It arose in the Carolingian Empire from the idealisation of the cavalryman —involving military bravery, individual training, and service to others—especially in Francia , among horse soldiers in Charlemagne 's cavalry. Over time, its meaning in Europe has been refined to emphasize more general social and moral virtues.

Сьюзан безучастно смотрела, как он направился в шифровалку. Это был уже не тот раздавленный отчаянием человек, каким она видела его десять минут. Коммандер Тревор Стратмор снова стал самим собой - человеком железной логики и самообладания, делающим то, что полагалось делать.
