The History of Chivalry by G.P.R. James describes the manners and customs , the political landscape during the time of the Crusades and the ultimate destruction of the Order of the Knights Templar. In it the author describes Chivalry as "a military institution, prompted by enthusiastic benevolence, sanctioned by religion, and combined with religious ceremonies, the purpose of which was to protect the weak from the oppression of the powerful, and to defend the right cause against the wrong." The book draws on accounts from participants and witnesses of the Crusades such as Albert of Aix, William of Tyre, Raoulof Caen , Guibert of Nogent and Raimond d'Agiles to draw an accurate picture of the times.
