A lecture class covering the teaching structure of Getty Ludwig Ms. Ludwig XV 13, better known as the Flower of Battle (il fior di battaglia) by Fiore Dei Liberi, a northern Italian sword master of the late 14th and early 15th century. This is the oldest surviving that covers, with an illustrated text, the chivalric weapons of dagger, sword, poleax, and spear. An brief introduction to the master will be followed by a basic outline of the manuscript’s teaching “code” and a look at the less obvious structures within the manuscript.
