  • Urban political violence in the fifteenth century, from Prague to Hamburg

    Martial Culture in Medieval Town Jul 19, 2021 | 16:05 pm

    During the late medieval period in Central and Northern Europe, urban spaces were at the epicenter of much of the trade, the manufacturing, the technological innovation, and administration of the regions surrounding them. Compared to the rural world, they were often hubs of trade, as zones of affluence and relative safety. But these urban spaces were also fraught with tension and not unusually, violence. Because of the important role played by towns in so many aspects of life for every medieval estate, relatively small incidents of political strife or open violence, which town dwellers made many efforts to quell, could have enormous ramifications both within and far beyond the town walls. This paper examines a few specific cases of social violence in towns, and in particular the large, partly autonomous towns known as Free Cities, and how these incidents impacted the urban center and the larger polities around them.

  • Dans l’œil du bretteur et du chirurgien

    Martial Culture in Medieval Town Jul 9, 2021 | 12:37 pm

    Both during sportive or bloody duel, the idea of injury remains in the head of the swordsman as a risk and an aim: hit the opponent while dodging his blows. However, during the 16th century, fencing masters are eager to give a chivalrous and knightly look to the practice of their art and tend to ignore its bloody aspect. The Gründtliche Beschreibung der Kunst des Fechtens by Joachim Meyer published in 1570 is a perfect example of this ambiguous position about the injury. Legal but above all medical sources then allow to fill the gap in the documentation left by the fencing treaties on the nature of the wounds caused by the blows of the sword.

However, the handling of other weapons linked to serious duels like the rapier, or to war like pikes or halberds, is for one of the first time very well detailed. This short article proposes to question the public targeted by this modern content, from the study of the technical content.
