Product description

Review

Useful window upon aristocratic culture ... provides useful insights into this key institution in the determination of chivalric culture in England, including a valuable section on attitudes towards the Garter and its traditions in vernacular literary texts. (Years Work in English Studies)

Solidly researched ... likely to be consulted as a reference concerning the institutional and political aspects of the order in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. It is an important work of use to historians of late medieval England. (History)

Collins has produced a succinct account which no student of the political, martial and chivalric world of the late middle ages can ignore. (History)

Literary scholars will learn more about the medieval Order of the Garter from this book than from any other, and they will profit from the expertise of a historian. (Medium Aevum)

From the Publisher

Review fron The Times Literary Supplement.
`Collins usefully reviews opinions on the foundation of the Order and the date of the earliest redaction of the Statutes' TLS
