Abstract:The culture of revolt re-formed warrior nobles' bonds of nobility , as nobles' social and cultural relationships became centered on the practices of civil violence. Confessionalism and group rituals forged new bonds between the nobles who participated in civil conflict. Warrior nobles formed ideals of honor, courage, loyalty, and respect that were based specifically on the circumstances and conditions of civil warfare. Nobles bonded through their shared experiences in warfare, but civil war also brought severance of bonds and created divisions in noble culture. Civil violence forced warrior nobles to make choices between conflicting loyalties, exposing the contours of clienteles and the complex practices of noble culture. Warrior noble culture was gradually transformed during this period not by the implementation of absolutism, but by the disruption of the culture of revolt.
