9781845951894: For Honour and Fame: Chivalry in England, 1066-1500
Revue de presse :

"Nigel Saul takes a relatively benign view of medieval noblemen. He rejects the once-fashionable notion that war was all about money and land, and that chivalry was just tinsel. And, although he sees a steep decline in standards in the last medieval century, he thinks that chivalric values did have a real influence in civilising the conduct of war... Saul can make the most unpromising material speak to us with a directness that can surprise even those who are already familiar with it. This is a rich book that does ample justice to its complex theme" ( The Times)

"Clear sighted history" ( Guardian)

"Professor Saul's achievement is to provide for the first time a holistic overview of English chivalric culture in its historical perspective. This is a fine book, whose richness of texture defies a brief review, but which will undoubtedly become a classic" ( BBC History Magazine)

"The book is full of solid, engrossing history.[it] serves, too, as a primer in medieval history, and the political and martial achievements of this country's rulers from William to Henry VII. Saul is a clear-eyed historian, not one to be taken in by popular legend" (Nicholas Lezard Guardian)

"Chivalry has often been something of a footnote in other volumes concerning the Middle Ages but here Saul proves that it is a worthy topic in and of itself" ( Bookgeeks)

Quatrième de couverture :

The world of medieval chivalry is at once glamorous and violent, alluring yet alien. Our popular views of the period are largely inherited from the nineteenth-century romantics, for whom chivalry evoked images of knights in shining armour, competing for the attention of fair ladies - with pennons and streamers fluttering from castle battlements.

But what was the reality? Were the rituals and romance of chivalry designed to provide an escape from the brutal facts of almost continuous warfare? Nigel Saul charts the introduction of chivalry by the Normans, the rise of the knightly class as a social elite and the influence of chivalry on literature, religion and architecture.

He shows us a world of kings and barons, castles and cathedrals, in the first book to treat chivalry as part of the wider history of medieval England.

'Sparkling' Express

'This is a rich book that does ample justice to its complex theme' Sunday Times

'Chivalry...was an aspiration. As this book of ably demonstrates, it influenced every aspect of knightly life: without it, the Middle Ages would have been not only duller and darker, but even more brutal' Mail on Sunday
