In the first episode of our series on Knights, Violence and Medieval Chivalry Dr. Nakashian paints an interesting picture of violence, morals and codes of conducts that in many ways destroys the mythicized image that we have today of Knights and their role in medieval society.

How violent were the Middle Ages? How were knights expected to behave? What was Medieval Chivalry? Were there universal codes of conduct? What did knights think about themselves and chivalry? We go through many of these topics and we have many more episodes coming!

Check out Dr. Nakashian at these sites and buy his book! It is great!
