Jonathan Boulton is Professor Emeritus of History and Medieval Studies at the University of Notre Dame. He is the author of two books, co-editor of one book with an additional five books in preparation. Sixty-five articles and chapters in books bear his name. He is the Founding Editor of Alta Studia Heraldica: The Scholarly Journal of the Royal Heraldry Society of Canada – La revue savante de la Société royale héraldique du Canada. During his Visiting Fellowship at the Institute, Professor Boulton will work to complete his book, “The Modern Myth of Medieval 'Chivalry': A Comprehensive Study of Didactic Works Proposing Codes of Behaviour for Noblemen composed 1170-1505,” which will refute the modern notions both of the existence of a single nobiliary code, and of the general association of such ideal behaviour with knighthood.
