Gospel Chivalry: Franciscan Romanticism

Gospel Chivalry: Franciscan Romanticism

by Mark of Whistable Staff




At its zenith during the high Middle Ages, chivalry embodied the concept of the ideal life of a knight. This ideal was rarely met, however; the chivalric code promoting valor, courtesy, generosity, and defense of the weak was often sadly neglected. St. Francis consciously set out to redeem chivalry, or at least to transform its significance, using its language in a new and revolutionary way for the Gospel life he had chosen.
