Chivalry: Historical, Personal, Immortal
From the first time that the Old French chevalerie was used to mean something beyond simple horse-soldiery, the concept has been subject to intensely personal interpretation. Even the classic code of conduct that began to coalesce in the 11th and 12th centuries was never static, always responsive to cultural and individual ideals, influences and execution. Whether medieval or modern, the concept has as many shades of meaning as it has interpreters. Share your personal experience of chivalry: As you have found it in great historical examples; as you practice it in your own life; as you have experienced it, inside and outside the Society. Send your observations (of up to 300 words) to [log in to unmask] and they may be included in the 1st Quarter 2016 Issue of Tournaments Illuminated.
