The Rules of the Game: Re-Enactors and Fealty
Halmstad University, School of Education, Humanities and Social Science, Contexts and Cultural Boundaries (KK).
2012 (English)Conference paper, Presentation (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

In re-enactment groups, fealty is often sworn and received, in imitation of a feudal world. The procedure is invested with various meanings, often with a clear desire to mark it both as significant and as different from life-long fealty. In the oaths, these boundaries are often explicitly set. I will investigate, through interviews, a number of issues surrounding the modern re-enactor's fealty, such as how the re-enactor understands medieval fealty; how this understanding colours their own experience of fealty, and how significant fealty is to their understanding of the Middle Ages.
