Title:French Chivalry: Chivalric Ideas and Practices in Mediaeval France
Author:
Painter, Sidney   
Published:   1940
Publisher:Cornell University Press
Tags:chivalry, France, historical, non-fiction
Description:

The nature of the subject and the material used has made it impracticable to follow the established methodology of historical scholarship. The foot-notes are for the most part simply references to enable the reader to find the sources of direct and indirect quotations. They are intended to provide illustrations rather than proofs. Thus when I state that a certain idea was frequently found in troubadour poetry, I furnish an illustration of its use, but make no attempt to cite all the places where I have found it.

The first chapter entitled The nobles of France is not an integral part of the book. It is intended to provide for the reader who is not familiar with mediaeval history the background required for understanding the chapters on chivalry. The mediaeval historian would do well to start with the second chapter. [Suggest a different description.]
