Knights of Veritas

Knights of Veritas was formed in late 2004 after Director Eric Slyter, having retired from years of performing in the Northwestern US renaissance faire circuit, decided to focus on educational avenues rather than entertainment ones. Eric's passion had always been educating the public about accurate medieval history, and he decided to specialize in educational presentations for schools and libraries by forming an organization devoted to doing just that. Thus, Knights of Veritas was created, and immediately made its mark with prestigious bookings at at the Seattle Art Museum in conjunction with armour displayed at SAM's Spain in the Age of Exploration exhibit. Starting in 2005, Knights began travelling extensively throughout Washington State and the Pacific Northwest, staking its claim as the premier professional presenters on the subjects of arms, armour, combat, knighthood and chivalry of the middle ages.

Knights of Veritas challenges the common myths and misconceptions about knights and medieval history, encouraging reevaluation of long-held beliefs and building critical thinking skills. All aspects of Knights of Veritas presentations are based on current scholarship, archaeology and interpretation of period sources; the clothing, armour and weapons are accurate to the originals in form and design, using period materials and accurate in detail right down to the buttons and buckles. Ever improving and enhancing its program, Knights of Veritas features free educational handouts on a variety of fascinating and popular topics, even including a co-branded book list, encouraging literacy and ongoing study. Knights even brings a display case featuring a selection of real, genuine medieval antiquities. And of course, no presentation is complete without a discussion of the Code of Chivalry. What makes a knight a knight? Hint: it isn't the sword or the armour...

Knights of Veritas became a state-recognized non-profit educational organization in late 2005, becoming a Federally recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit in 2011. Knights of Veritas remains dedicated to providing exciting, engaging and professional educational presentations for schools, libraries, homeschool groups and other educational partners all throughout the Pacific Northwest.
