Well, in general, the "knightly" period is shrouded in a veil of romance))) I think this "romanticization" began in literature and mass consciousness thanks to Sir Thomas Malory (15th century) and his large-scale epic "The Death of Arthur", in which he combined and literary formalized all the most common legends about Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. It is Malory's book that is the main source for all subsequent Arturians and in general for "knightly" novels
I remembered a joke here:
- Can't you kill? - No you can not. - And for faith? - Well, this is a sacred thing ...
"Autumn is already entering the Rhine and we have gone to the ends of the earth and our bones in the churchyard The desert sands have been brought.
..and the clouds are burning in the sky and dust is blowing along the roads and..The wind is blowing .. the wind is blowing from the wild, parched deserts.
.. and our wives are waiting for us at home our brides have bloomed and our widows cry bitterly their cry flies to the ends of the earth ... "
Let's start with the fact that Deus Vult is the battle cry of the Crusaders during the first Crusade in 1095. Here, on the Internet, the phrase gained popularity among fans of the game Crusader Kings, and then on political boards in Reddit and Fortchan, in particular in discussions about Islamic extremism. The essence is not very clear, but in short, the topic went from Reddit and Forch.
In 2012, the game Crusader Kings II appeared, where the phrase Deus Vult appears when the Pope announces the beginning of the Crusade.
In general, as usual, everything went from reddit and Forchana, the only question is who is the instigator.
