What is Chivalry? Archive
Posted on December 12, 2003 | No CommentsThe holidays should be a time for joy and sharing, but too often we get overwhelmed by stress and commitments during these hectic days. Yet it’s in moments of stress that the Knightly Virtues are most important; as this account reminds us, we should never allow the chivalrous spirit of generosity to be crushed by the distasteful actions of others.
Posted on August 15, 2003 | 1 CommentMost people would probably consider a career as a trash truck driver to be the bottom rung on the ladder of humanity, but in reality, it is a noble and respectable profession. Imagine what our streets and homes would look (and smell) like if not for the trash truck drivers of the world. Everyone benefits from the service the garbage collector provides.
Posted on August 5, 2003 | 2 CommentsScholars of both literature and social history often dismiss the Code of Chivalry as “simplistic,” saying that the knightly legends of the Middle Ages lack the complexity and nuance that makes other cultures rich and fascinating. Arthurian legends and the historical knights who admired them have even been referred to in academic circles as “juvenile.” Such criticism makes some people wonder why these legends have endured for so long. If knights in shining armor are so bland, why do they still live on in books and movies today?
