When Knights Were Bold

Eva March Tappan

Book Overview: 

This book is in no degree an attempt to relate the involved and intricate history of the Middle Ages. Its plan is, rather, to present pictures of the manner of life and habits of thought of the people who lived between the eighth and fifteenth centuries. Our writings and our everyday conversation are full of their phrases and of allusions to their ideas. Many of our thoughts and feelings and instincts, of our very follies and superstitions, have descended to us from them. To become better acquainted with them is to explain ourselves.

I learned alot about the medieval times. The book also was very hard to follow but it did explain alot in a short amount of time. It did acount much to the lifestyle of knights it basically focused on everything else.

I loved how antiquated this book is. The writing was a bit hard to read but I loved how it gave insight into Medieval times. I especially liked the chapter about chivalry. A fun read for anyone interested in knights, castles and life way back then.

The narrative is engaging, not dry, which in my opinion is always a plus point in non-fiction.

Despite the title, the subject focuses on all aspects of the middle ages, and except for two chapters, all proved interesting to read. I like best the opening chapters that are specifically about a knight’s

A truly interesting look at medieval life, from pages and knights to monks and kings.

This book is full of fascinating information about life in the middle ages. It's very readable and entertaining. This is not a dry history book. As a former science teacher, I was particularly interested in the science and medicine chapter.

This book was pretty good- and deserves props for several understated sarcastic commentaries on the facts being imparted- but overall, the agenda seemed to be making the Middle Ages sound as much like the early 20th century as it could.
