Es dürfte nur wenige Aspekte der mittelalterlichen Geschichte geben, die nicht in irgendeiner shape mit Adel, Ministerialität und Rittertum in Verbindung stehen. Der Adel struggle nicht nur die wichtigste, sondern im Grunde sogar die einzige Elite, die alle Bereiche von Gesellschaft und Politik nahezu unangefochten beherrschte. Das Buch gibt einen Überblick über die zahlreichen Aspekte des Themas - von der Entstehung des Adels, den geistesgeschichtlichen Traditionen, in denen er stand, seinen materiellen Grundlagen sowie seinen Werten und Leitbildern, den Beziehungen zum Königtum, seiner Bedeutung in der mittelalterlichen Kirche, der Struktur der adligen Familie und der Rolle des Rittertums für adliges Selbstverständnis und soziale Mobilität bis hin zu der Frage, ob der Adel im späten Mittelalter in eine Krise geriet und seine Vorbildfunktion verlor. Da gerade die zentralen Fragen in der heutigen Mediävistik umstritten sind, wird der Forschungsgeschichte große Beachtung geschenkt.
