Description
Geoffroi de Charny wrote a treatise asking over 130 questions concerning the joust, tournaments, and war -- mostly about war. The nature of the questions highlight that being a man-at-arms was a profession with its own problems concerning pay and status. But it also address issues of personal honor that are pertinent to the SCA today. The instructor will provide a broad overview of the questions and then there will be a discussion of a few particular ones, particularly the famous one associated with "he who does more is worth more." This class will be recorded.
