Paulus Hector Mair - De Arte Athletica translation?

Postby Ivan » 21 Apr 2010 21:34


I've always wondered, how come noone translated/transcribed any of the chapters from Mair?
Seems to me like the most complete Fechtbuch in existence, with good text (I've translated 2 plates with a lot of effort), and excellent art.

Silly me :oops: ... or_Mair/1r

Ok, question number two... I haven't seen a lot of people referencing to this particular manuscript. Why is that?
Also, are there any differences between the latin and german one, apart from the language and print?

David Knight's blog has some translations of the Sickle section, among other things:

And Kieth Myers has posted some of his translation work from various sections on the Pendant and HEMA Alliance forums.
