Studies in the Age of Chaucer
Kaeuper argues that chivalric ideology of the high and later Middle Ages selectively appropriated religious ideas to valorize the institution of knighthood. He describes how both elite warriors and clerics contributed to a Christian theology that validated the knights' bloody profession. The book is carefully and elegantly written, and the arguments are abundantly documented. It must be essential reading for any scholar concerned with the knightly culture of the Middle Ages. An excellent book that greatly enhances our understanding of medieval chivalric culture. Holy Warriors. Philadelphia: University of Pennsylvania Press.

Chivalry was a violent, often grisly, phenomenon. But he also insists that chivalry is more than a timeless warrior code. Though its influence is still felt, chivalry is specific to a historical period—from roughly the second half of the 11th century into the 16th century—and it underpins medieval society in many ways. But it also refers to the collective body of knights present in an action and—most important—a set of ideas and practices.

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 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.

Many of them come from…how do you say it. Lawyers and clients sat opposite one another at a series of partitioned tables. I already know you like fried chicken, that everything was going to be different. I always told him you would come back for it. At this point, he lifted his knee and stomped his boot against the door. I like a good ghost story as much as anyone.
