“A study of very great and broad significance for the understanding of the nature of knighthood, chivalry and courtesy. It counters the casually held notion that makes clean separation between knights and clerics. The literacy of knights was widespread, and more important, a strongly held and asserted social value. It had a powerful influence on the behavior of knights, and on held and practiced social values of the aristocracy. The book stands as an important contribution to studies of chivalry and the intellectual and social life of the high Middle Ages.”
