Order and Chivalry

Order and Chivalry explores the role of chivalry in the emergence of the bourgeoisie in fourteenth-century Castile. This book shows how the texts that shaped urban knighthood also transformed the middle class, the idea of the city, and the practice of citizenship in medieval Iberia.
