Program Description & Details

In our changing world, teaching ethics has become increasing important in creating responsible global citizens. The new curriculum asks students to make ethical judgements about the past and evaluate the limitations of drawing direct lessons from history.  One approach is to directly compare modern codes of ethics with historical codes from period sources. Studying prescribed codes of ethics from medieval chivalric manuscripts, such as the Book of Chivalry by Geffroi de Charny, and The Flower of Battle by Fiore dei Liberi, helps students examine their own codes of ethics and understand the pitfalls of dubious translations. But chivalry is essentially the ethics of swordfighting, and the best way to learn this is by swinging a sword. This exciting workshop combines hands on swordplay experience for kinesthetic learners with interpretation of historical manuscripts to reach multiple intelligences.
