Titel: The Concept of Knighthood in the Middle Ages...
Verlag: AMS Press Inc., New York, first edition, 1982
Auflage: 1st Edition
Cloth, gilt cover device, 8vo, 24 cm, viii, 268 pp. From the translator's preface: "The book is concerned primarily with knighthood in Germany, and most of the evidence is drawn from German documents and German literature, but there is frequent comparison with knighthood in other countries, particularly in France. The author's object is to establish what contemporaries understood by knighthood in a political, social, and even moral sense; he does not concern himself with the often fanciful ideas of knighthood held by authors of the later Middle Ages and by writers of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. To this end he has drawn heavily on legal documents of the period, but much of the evidence is derived from literary sources." Contents include: Translator's Preface; I Introduction; II The Word "Ritter": Its Age and Form; III The Knight as Soldier; IV The Knight as Retainer; V The Noble Knights; VI The Knightly Class; VII On the State of Research into Knighthood; Bibliography of Primary & Secondary Works; Source Materials; Secondary Literature; Notes; Index.
