Series: Sigmund Ringeck's Knightly Art of the Longsword
In the first half of the 15th century Sigmund Ringeck compiled a book with comments on the fencing teachings from Johannes Liechtenauer's verses from c. It contains no illustrations and is a handwritten document originally inscribed on loose sheets of paper. The handwriting is typical of the early years of the 15th century. The manual is of great importance due to its clear and precise instruction on long sword, wrestling, sword and buckler, armoured combat, and mounted combat. In the history of the martial arts of Western Europe there are a few individuals whose contributions have been instrumental in shaping the generations that followed them. Sigmund Ringeck turned out to be such a person. Not for any significant discoveries of his own, but as a transmitter and interpreter of the tradition of the grand old master Liechtenauer's teachings.
