Exploring the Meaning of a Knight In Our Times


Most of us imagine Chivalry as a feature of Medieval Europe; knights in shining armour, riding their steeds. But to explore the concept of what it means to be a knight in our times, New Acropolis (Main Centre) hosted a talk titled “Being a Knight of the 21st Century” on 6th April 2019.

Using various mythological examples such as the legend of King Arthur and the Holy Grail, it was explained how Knighthood represented the ability of an ordinary individual to overcome his own shortcomings. It was proposed that each one of us can become a Knight or Lady if we can recognise and work with our inner potential, our noble virtues. True nobility lies in rising each time we fall with renewed vigour.
