Comparative Essay on Sir Gawain and the Green Knight and Monty Python and the Holy Grail It is impossible for a human being to fulfill all the ideals of the Chivalric Code and the seven Cardinal Virtues Christian knights lived by the Chivalric Code to gain honor but it was not possible even for the best and purest knights to always stick to these conventions of courtesy generosity loyalty consistency chastity poverty valor and skill In addition to these components of the Chivalric Code a knight was to follow the seven Cardinal Virtues which were justice prudence temperance fortitude faith hope and charity Monty Python and the Holy Grail as well as Sir Gawain and the Green Knight demonstrates the problematic nature of chastity As Sir Galahad Monty Python and the Holy Grail is on his quest to find the Holy Grail he arrives at the Castle Anthrax where he imagined seeing his object of desire In this castle however is no grail but many women all between 16 and 19 and a half Monty Python and the Holy Grail These women are trying to seduce him While he is trying to resist the temptation in the beginning he is perfectly willing to give up his chastity at the time Lancelot arrives to save him Sir Galahad who even has the epithet the Chaste Monty Python and the Holy Grail is according to the Arthurian legend considered the purest and perfect knight Consequently he is the only one to possess the Holy Grail although the moment he enters the castle he has sex in his mind Him having impure thoughts and almost failing to keep his chastity shows the impossibility of being a perfect knight Sir Gawain is going through a similar situation but since Monty Python and the Holy Grail is a parody Sir Gawains actions will have more important consequences He is staying in the castle of Lord Bertilak and his wife
