Today, we’re continuing our discussion about chivalry. Chivalry can be classified into three basic but overlapping areas: Duties to countrymen and fellow Christians, duties to God and our focus: his duties to women. Last week we asked a few historical questions like: Did a knight have to make up love songs and poetry to win over a lady too, besides all that fighting? We also talked about where Chivalry came from. At that time, the idealized model for women was the Virgin Mary and the Church saw women as reflections of Mary’s divine nature. Hence men came to see women primarily as nurturers and mothers. A shadow of this code still persists to this day. However, at least in part, the chivalry code has vanished. So this week, we’re going to ask what happened to it.
