THE DIALOGUE OF CHIVALRY OF SIR FINNVARR DE TAAHE by Finnvarr de Taahe, Trade Paperback, 52 pages

It began about two decades ago, at the Middlebridge, where members of the Middle Kingdom of the Society for Creative Anachronism gathered to gossip and debate. The conversation turned sour as some began to complain that the ideals that the SCA claimed to stand for were no longer being observed.

Duke Finnvarr de Taahe was distressed. The complaining he was hearing seemed to be leading nowhere. He therefore challenged those present to think seriously about chivalry and peerage. How did people fall short of their ideals? How did others meet the high standards they set for themselves?

This challenge resulted in a classic discussion, which was recorded for posterity by Duke Finnvarr’s clerk, Etienne de l’Isle. Although things have changed within the SCA since the Dialogue took place, much remains the same, and the gathered wisdom of the participants, both famous and obscure, is still of interest for those who take the SCA experience seriously.
