Profusely illustrated and redesigned for a new generation of readers, Richard Barber's classic The Reign of Chivalry presents a broad picture of the chivalric world, and shows how chivalry affected or was affected by great social movements, great writers and great events, and analyses the legacy it passed down to later ages. The opening chapter looks at the central figure of the whole chivalric world, the knight, and asks why he is such a different figure from other fighting men. Following sections deal with chivalry in relation to the main themes of medieval literature, especially the vast cycle of Arthurian romances, and discuss the attitudes towards chivalry of writers such as Jean Froissart, whose pages cast a golden glow over the harsh realities of war. Later sections look at chivalry's influence on the Renaissance and later culture, beginning with the knight's transition to gentleman. The element by which chivalry is now most remembered, its respectful, even adoring, attitude towards women, is the subject of a wide-ranging discussion, covering both medieval reality and modern ideals. Richard Barber, author of Holy Grail: History of a Legend, Myths and Legends of the British Isles and King Arthur: Hero and Legend, has written an engaging and intriguing book on one of the most original concepts of the medieval mind.… (mere)

A coffee table book published in 1980 that proved to be an excellent introduction to Knighthood and Chivalry. There are many illustrations; the majority in black and white, but they do provide some amusement for an idle flicking through of its pages. There is an index but no notes.

The first section Knights and Warfare gives a brief history of the emergence of the knight on the battlefield and then its importance as a fighting machine in the 11th - 14th centuries, finally the knight becomes more a symbolic figure restricted to tournaments that became evermore formulaic. The following section on Chivalry and Literature; the longest of the sections is very fine indeed. It gives plenty of information about the literature associated with knighthood, with pointers for further reading. The Troubadours, continental literature, Arthurian Romances and the Grail legends are all covered. The Chivalry and Religion section gives an overview of the crusades and the military orders that followed. This includes a well written account of the Knights Templers and Hospitallers. The final section shows the demise of chivalry and the rise of the Gentlemen Courtiers. There are plenty of quotes from literary sources and the battleground scenes are exciting to read. This does provide a little of something for everybody interested in Knights and chivalry. ( )
