Letter authorizing Lippo Dardi to open a fencing school

Postby Sean M » 08 Jul 2015 09:43

Dr. Trevor Dean at Roehampton University in London has transcribed and translated a letter from December 1443 describing the negotiations between Lippo Dardi and the Lords of Bologna concerning his request to open a fencing school. (Tip o' the Phrygian cap to Grauenwolf and to Brian Stokes).

Note well that some paragraphs are in Italian, and some in Latin.
how could anyone resist becoming
part of what I thought you were?
