This chapter, part of the volume 'A Companion to Chivalry', aims to discuss a key theme of medieval chivalry within the context of modern scholarly understanding of medieval chivalry and knighthood. The establishment of the military orders helped to establish a strong religious undertone to the chivalric ethos of the secular knighthood of the high middle ages. This chapter considers the chivalric ethos as it pertained to the military orders, not only in the Latin East but particularly within the Teutonic Ordenstaat.
