Historical Materials on Knighthood and Chivalry

Behind the romance of chivalry is a great deal of history.   Any survey of the facts runs the danger of turning into a history of the entire High and Late Middle Ages.

This section of the KCT Resource Library has a more modest aim:   to provide links to the most interesting documents, historical accounts, and modern commentaries available either on this site or elsewhere on the Web.

A unique feature of KCT is the Deeds of Arms collection, which features a number of contemporary accounts of jousts, tournaments, and other faits d'armes of the fourteenth century.  Where possible, both the original text and a modern English translation are provided.
