The 12 Trusts

The 12 Trusts

The CN Archive!

Once upon a time, not long ago, an idea was born that made perfect sense.

It claimed that the world would greatly benefit if people more actively adopted reason and virtue, and we should make that our personal and cultural goal. It was not unlike the rationale behind the Age of Enlightenment that placed the betterment of humanity at the forefront. What made it different is that it provided a code of behavior related to an even earlier age, called the 12 Trusts.

It was not unlike the code of medieval chivalry, but updated for modern times. It called itself “Chivalry-Now” (CN). It also incorporated knowledge and moral lessons derived since the Age of Chivalry, buttressed by intellectual and cultural thought dating back to ancient Greece. It included the clarity of thought derived from Stoic and Epicurean philosophies, and an emphasis on personal responsibility articulated by 20th century Existentialism. It reflected the search for truth gleaned from all ages, including psychology and other sciences, along with insights from other cultures and religions as well.

In 2006, a handful of articles were posted on a dedicated website that eventually included the 12 Trusts. It gradually drew the attention of interested people. Looking for group identity that would not be construed as an “order,” the International Fellowship of Chivalry-Now (IFCN) was formed.

Two books were published: Chivalry-Now, the Code of Male Ethics, which focused on the 12 Trusts, and The Deeper Quest, which defined the CN Concepts and served as a guidebook for those wishing to become Knights.

We are now do most of our outreach through Facebook.
