Book Summary:

Completed in 1482, Johannes Leckeuchner's 'Art of Combat with the "Langes Messer" (Messerfechtkunst)' is among the most important documents on the combat arts of the Middle Ages. The Messer was a single-edged, one-handed utility sword peculiar to central Europe, but Leckeuchner's techniques apply to cut-and-thrust swords in general. Not only is this treatise the single most substantial work on the use of one-handed swords to survive from this period, but it is the most detailed explanation of the two-handed sword techniques of the German "Liechtenauer" school dating back to the 1300s. Leckeuchner's lavish manuscript consists of over four hundred illustrations with explanatory text, in which the author, a parish priest, rings the changes on bladework, deceits, and grappling, with techniques ranging from life-or-death escapes from an armed assailant to slapstick moves designed to please the crowd in public fencing matches. This translation, complete with all illustrations from the manuscript, makes the treatise accessible for the first time since the author's untimely death less than a year after its completion left his major work to be lost for generations.0An extensive introduction, notes, and glossary analyze and contextualize the work and clarify its technical content. Jeffrey L. Forgeng is curator of Arms and Armor and Medieval Art at the Worcester Art Museum, and teaches as Adjunct Professor of History at Worcester Polytechnic Institute.

Excerpt: Pankration ( or ) was a martial art introduced into the Greek Olympic Games in 648 BC and founded as a blend of boxing and wrestling but without any rules. The term comes from the Greek, literally meaning "all powers" from (pan-) "all" + (kratos) "strength, power." Spartan soldiers were taught to use this ancient boxing technique with the sole purpose of fighting and killing on the battlefield. For that reason, Spartans were not allowed to participate in any boxing competition including other Greeks. Modern mixed martial arts competitions have come to feature many of the same methods that were used in pankration competitions in the ancient Greek world. In Greek mythology, it was said that the heroes Heracles and Theseus invented pankration as a result of using both wrestling and boxing in...

Book Summary:

Innerhalb der Artes-Literatur des Mittelalters und der fruhen Neuzeit stellen Fecht- und Ringbucher ein grosses, facettenreiches Quellenkorpus dar, dessen inhaltliches Potential noch lange nicht durch alle in Frage kommenden Disziplinen erschopfend aufgearbeitet wurde. Sie bieten Material fur breit angelegte, interdisziplinare Forschungsansatze, wie sie die in diesem Sammelband versammelten zwolf Beitrage verfolgen. Diese nahern sich dem Untersuchungsgegenstand aus der Sicht verschiedener Disziplinen an. Sie nehmen dabei das gesamte Korpus oder einzelne herausragende Handschriften in den Fokus ihrer Analysen. Die Ergebnisse dokumentieren eindrucksvoll die mogliche Vielfalt an Erkenntnisgewinn fur unterschiedliche Fachrichtungen und zeigen einmal mehr, dass Fecht- und Ringbucher nicht nur Gegenstand der Fachprosaforschung sein sollten. Die Aufsatze beruhen grossteils auf Vortragen, die im Rahmen eines interdisziplinaren Round-Table-Gesprachs des Instituts fur Realienkunde des Mittelalters und der fruhen Neuzeit 2009 in Krems gehalten wurden.
