What was the code of chivalry?

The CODE OF CHIVALRY is the code that all knights live by. A knight was expected to obey his lord, to be brave, to show respect to women of noble birth, to honor the church, and to help people. And help noble kids become men.

The purpose of the of code of chivalry was that the kings and the knights would have respect for women that time was for the women.

The Knights' Code of Chivalry was part of the culture of the Middle Ages, understood by all, even if rarely practiced in actuality. Perhaps the best period description of what was expected of a true, chivalrous knight is found in the famous French medieval epic, The Chanson de Roland, which describes the semi-fictitious struggles and battles of the knights of Emperor Charlemagne. Composed between 1089-1100, it narrates the fate of the rearguard of Charlemagne's army, after its betrayal into the hands of the Saracens.

Led by Roland, the vastly outnumbered French force fights to the last man, but in doing so sets forward a kind of chivalric benchmarks to which every knight aspired: to fear God and maintain His Church, to obey those placed in authority, to at all times speak the truth, to live by honor and for glory, etc.

Knights had to have deep faith generous to all and stand against injustice (they didn't usually follow this code)

Friday the 13th

What do the knights templar have to do with Friday the 13th?

The Poor Fellow-Soldiers of the Temple of Solomon or The Knights Templar, were a militant branch of the clergy, tasked with support and protection of Christian pilgrims in the Holy land during the crusades. They were also the Bankers for said pilgrims, having a system where one could deposit funds with one group of Templars and withdraw those funds (less a handling fee) from any other group of Templars. The Templars gained wealth as the Church showered blessings and money on the order; but with the wealth came power and stories of corruption. The French monarch King Phillip IV and Pope Clement V together set up an elaborate plan to completely destroy the Templars, sending out secret, sealed orders across Christendom to be opened and immediately acted upon at a set date. It is said that the date was believed to be Friday the 13th. On 13 October 1307, Philip IV ordered the arrest of the entire order of Knights Templar in France, and had their possessions confiscated. This act served as one of several origins of the superstition which regards Friday the 13th as an unlucky day. Those member who were not killed outright were taken into custody and charged with heresy. They were tortured to obtain confessions of sacrilegious practices, including heresy and witchcraft, and sent to the flames en mass. These admissions were later retracted as being forced admissions. The leader of the Templars, Jacques de Molay, was executed on 18 March 1314, by which time the Templars had been virtually hunted out of existence. Their lands, funds, and other properties reverted to the crown, and some say the king shared these with the church.

Why do important or wealthy people become Freemasons?

Wealthy persons and people with visible social status become Freemasons for personal reasons, but often they are the same reasons that men from all walks of life approach our portals. Typically men are looking for something bigger in their lives - perhaps a sense of honor, or brotherhood. Each man has his own specific reasons for looking into becoming a Freemason - reasons that are discussed during the interview process leading up to a ballot for membership.

It is certainly interesting that many of these men are or become men of consequence in society, and many are the words in praise of the tenets of Freemasonry and their contribution to the man's drive and outlook on life. But ultimately we must also recognize that many great men are not Freemasons, and therefore Freemasonry should not be viewed as some automatic ticket to greatness.

What is the blue templar knights?

The Blue Templars are a society of current and former Local Police, State Troopers, Deputy Sheriffs, federal agents and military veterans who are dedicated to protect and defend the free people of America and to fight evil wherever it may be.

All Blue Templar members have taken an Oath to protect and defend not only the Constitution of the United States, but to protect the honest, innocent true believers from those who would do them harm. We are well aware that the criminal justice system in America has nothing to do with what is "right" versus what is "wrong" and oftentimes it does not punish the evil doers. With this in mind, we are prepared to fulfill the oath we swore to defend the country against all enemies, both foreign and domestic, so help us God.

Their motto is "Judge us not, lest ye be judged!"

What did it mean to be a Knight in the Middle Ages?

AnswerIn the Middle Ages to be a knight meant a lot. It took years to become a knight. When a young boy (almost always of noble blood) was about 6 or 7 years old he was sent to the castle of his father's feudal lord to become a page. And for about 8-9 years he served his lord carrying messages, fetching things, etc. Then when he was around 14 or 15 he became a squire and was "assigned" (if you will) to a knight. As a squire his job was to fetch and carrying things for his knight and to help him put on his armor. During what spare time he had a squire would do exercises that would help him become a good fighter (such as mock battles with other squires). Then when he was about 17 or 18 he began to fight in real battles. At any point from this time on he could be knighted. Usually a squire became a knight after he had proven his valour in battle. Though sometimes he could prove himself brave in general and then a date would be sent for his "dubbing". The night before he would serve vigil in a chapel. He would neither eat, drink nor sleep during this time but prayed. The next morning he would be brought before his lord to be knighted. Don't let the movies fool you. There was no light dramatic tap on his shoulder. When knighted the lord doing the knighting would take the new knight's sword and give him such a wallop on the shoulder that often the knight would fall over (though they tried not to). After this the knight was giving his shield with his heraldic symbol on it, and his sword. From now on he would be known as "Sir such and such" and would have the right to fight in tournament and to carry a lady's favor. MoreFrom the point of view of a person's place in society, being a knight meant a lot. Knights were at the lowest rank of nobility, but they were nobility, and above most commoners. The younger sons of nobility, who could not inherit titles, were commoners, and if they wanted to be above most of the middle class, they had to do something about that. Becoming a knight usually meant their having a manor, and they became members of the landed gentry, which, while common, was also of the untitled lower nobility.

A person could be of the untitled nobility and a commoner at the same time. If you had to be a commoner, becoming a knight put you into the untitled nobility.

Who was the most famous Knight?

The most famous knight would definitely be King Arthur. While Launcelot is the most famous knight in King Arthur's service, everyone knows who King Arthur is. No matter where you go and mention knights, immediately "Excalibur" enters their head. Don Quixote would probably be equally famous in the Hispanic communities.
