Pressestimmen

"Kaeuper's arguments brilliantly elucidate the theological ideas that were used to justify chivalric conduct. . . . The book is carefully and elegantly written, and the arguments are abundantly documented. It must be essential reading for any scholar concerned with the knightly culture of the Middle Ages."--Michael Prestwich, "American Historical Review"

"It brings to bear the rich experience, wide knowledge, and balanced judgment of a long scholarly career while pushing forward the lines of investigation where they yield most results. . . . An excellent book that greatly enhances our understanding of medieval chivalric culture."--"Speculum"

"Kaeuper's book offers much to the understanding of knighthood because it examines a little understood aspect of chivalry in detail, namely, the religious ideas of chivalry and their application in the daily life of the knight."--"Parergon"

"A triumph. . . . in bringing attention to the specifically devotional aspects of chivalry and the ways in which this elite group of laity reacted to and transformed Church initiatives, Kaeuper deserves special credit."--"Sixteenth Century Journal"

HASH(0x9d0b4978) von 5 Sternen Splendidly written and a pleasure ot read 2. Dezember 2010
Von Christian G. Cameron - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Prof. Kaeuper's latest is a careful examination of the religious underpinnings of the chivalric world. It is NOT a book about Templars or Crusaders, per se, but rather, about the cultures and mentalities of the chivalric ordo and their clerical advocates and critics. Kaeuper's evocation of the major texts (like De Charny) and of the vast canon of chivalric literature (the chansons de geste and other poems) is skillfully used to support his thesis; his investigations into Medieval theology--or rather, into the practical applications of asceticism, for example, and their effect on the life and belief systems of the chivalric professionals) are masterful, well written, well argued.

I enjoyed the book and its arguments immensely, and I'd recommend it to anyone with more than a passing interest in chivalry. As Kaeuper includes most of the quotes he uses in the text, and utterly eschews academic jargon, the text is accessible to any reader.
