Examines the actual position, role and image of the knight within English society and how these changed across the centuries. Drawing on the results of recent research, it presents a synthesis of the current knowledge available on the role of the knight in all his aspects, and illustrates this with a wealth of contemporary manuscripts, engravings and depictions of heraldry which show the influence of knighthood in the period. Complemented by a wide variety of illustrations-engravings, manuscripts, seals, stained glass, paintings and documents-this book will be of interest to academic historians and students, as well as appealing to the general reader. Includes an Index.
