This is an auspicious moment for HEMA, and particularly for practitioners of Fiore dei Liberi’s arte dell’armizare. We’ve come a long way since the first grasping attempts at translation and interpretation, and now have a solid grounding upon which to build our interpretations and martial work. That said, all is not said and done, and research continues into the finer points of the Art.
Continuing in this tradition, a student of mine, Jean François Gagné, and now HEMA researcher has published a paper on our website detailing a “lost” or “implied” posta by working systematically through the ensemble of manuscripts.
