From the dust jacket:
This book is a beautiful and illuminating introduction to the ancient code of behavior that shaped the relations between the sexes in medieval times.
This lavishly illustrated volume presents a concise account of the evolution, history, and practive of chivalry, from its roots in the relifious fervor of the Crusades to its zenith in Eleanor of Aquitaine's Court of Love, where romantic disputes were resolved.
