The knight spirt? I'm wondering about the difference between "knight spirit" and "Chivalry". Please tell me the difference. Are they the same meaning? What's Roland's knight spirit in The Song of Roland? Could we say that Roland is a marvelous knight? Why?

I'm not sure about "knight spirit" (sounds like a ghost), but I understand what you mean. We'd usually say "knight's code" or perhaps "spirit (=ideal) of knighthood". Generally, I'd consider "knight's code" and "chivalry" as the same thing - both are about behaving in an honourable way.
