Memory and Chivalry: Lessons from Sir Gawain


Brian Phillips


Presented at the 2017 National Conference in Austin, TX.

Sir Gawain, one of the noblest knights of King Arthur’s Round Table, bravely rose to face the Green Knight’s challenge. In doing so, his word, his courage, and his loyalty were all tested. More than that, Sir Gawain faced a test of memory. In this talk, Brian Phillips will explore Sir Gawain & the Green Knight, drawing particular attention to what it teaches us about memory, temptation, and true manhood and womanhood.
