Anonymous, Untitled - Cod 11093, c1450

Österreichische Nationalbibliothek - Codex Vindobonensis B 11093 15th c.

According to Dr. Hans Peter-Hils, this fechtbuch appears to have originated in southwestern Germany, the clothing, arms and weapons point to the middle of the 15th century. The manuscripts configuration, scope and contents evoke associations to the " Gladiatoria ' - group (this is a catch all group whose major cause for association is that it does not directly fall into the Liechtenauers school, although they do exhibit many of the characteristics, but not all. The manuscript contains only illustrations in 46 pages, and cover fighting arts disciplines that include armoured fighting with spears, armoured longsword on foot, armoured longsword and dagger, pollaxe, wrestling and swordfighting on horseback. The images were obtained by converting standard 35mm microfilm to a digital format, namely tiff files.
