Description

The papers of this session deal with the persistence of the Germanic warrior tradition in the effective value-systems both of noblemen and of crusaders, noble and otherwise, and of the consequent acceptance of violent means to achieve many highly-valued goals, especially the pursuit and defense of individual and collective honor. They look at these questions from different perspectives in different contexts, countries, and centuries, from the eleventh to the fifteenth. They also serve to illustrate the principal theme of the Seigneurie sessions at the Congress: the centrality of these warrior-values in the true ideals of knightliness or "chivalry'.
