I Dub thee Sir Knight – Medieval Tapestry

The almost knighted squire would put on a tunic. He knelt before his lord, then his lord would slap him with his hand or the flat of the sword. As his lord was doing that, his lord would say, “I dub thee Sir Knight.” Then the new knight would receive his sword, lance, and golden spurs. Each of the weapons had a good meaning. The lance had a saying. It was said, “As fear of the lance drives back the unarmed, so the knight drives back the enemies of the church.”  Old World Medieval Knight Tapestry ”I dub thee Sir Knight”..
