Feudalism and Homage Ceremony - Dialogue

  1. 1. Homage Ceremony  Inmixtio Manum: • The vassal joins his hands as if he was praying and the lord holds the vassal’s hands between his own hands.  Oath of Fealty: (the vassal must swear upon a holy object such as a Bible, or a relic). • Vassal: - I swear to obey you, my lord. - I swear to help you with my army, - And to give you counsel - And also to give you any economic support that you may need  Investiture • Lord: - In Exchange of your obedience I issue you A fief symbolized by this sack of soil that will give you sustenance for all your life. (The lord gives to the vassal a sack of soil) - I will also give you Military Protection and Legal Defense - And as conclusion of this union I’ll touch your shoulders with my sword. (At this moment the lord touches gently both shoulders of the vassal with his sword).IES Villa de Vallecas Gema de la Torre
