The Knight in Medieval England, 1000-1400Unknown - 1996
Bypassing the chivalric and romantic ideals of knighthood, Cross (history, U. of Northumbria, England) examines the actual practice of knights and their role in society. He traces the origin of knighthood in the late Saxon and early Anglo-Norman period, how it changed over the course of the centuries, and how it related to lordship, gentility, and military service. Well illustrated. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
