Description

The session looks at the changing relationships between knightly status and ideals on one hand and and noble status and behavior on the other in the thirteenth though fifteenth centuries. The first paper does so through the lens of the practice of knighting members of the highest stratum of the nobility of England from 1272 to 1377, the second through that of works dealing with knightly violence in Naples in the fourteenth century, and the third through that of the knightly career of a Florentine nobleman in the early fifteenth century.
