By working carefully through these texts, Lieberman is able to conclude that the evidence suggests that “symbolic deliveries of arms” apparently did take place in courtly settings as early as the 11th century and that they were designed to mark a young mans entry into manhood. He further argues, that it is highly likely that the arms consisted of a full set of weapons fitting the young man out as a mounted cavalryman. The text from the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle may suggest this. However, unspecified arms might also just be given as gifts like those Harold was gifted with in the scene in the tapestry (it is highly unlikely to understand this scene as part of a process whereby William takes Harold as a vassal. He is obviously fitting Harold with a helmet, not slapping him).

A much more complicated question is, though, what status these young men acquired, when they received their “arms”. “Miles” was a “polysemic and richly evocative” expression already before 1100, writes Lieberman. However, in his opinion the six bits of text does suggest that what took place were indeed constitutive knightings – “that it was possible to be knighted, even before 1100”.

But was it constitutive knighting – in the sense that the young men became “knights” as the result of a performative ritual? Yes, answers Lieberman: There was a type of arms-gift and this was linked to the creation of knights out of young persons, who grew up in the household of a lord.
