Money is an effective tool to prise valuable information from the megalithic institutions that hold it. Lots of money. :roll:

Oh well. I, for one, touched this manuscript. With my bare hands. For what it's worth.


Now each and every one of you are bound to pay me a beer or five whenever we meet.

surley you should have been wearing gloves! :shock: the horror! ;-)

and you still havn't told us poor unfortunate souls who didn't make it to Dijon what it was like! If you do you can count on a beer from me should I ever have the good fortune to meet you!*

*My worry is that you will have got old and bored of running Dijon by the time I can afford to make it. The irony of moving to the other side of the world.

I'd buy you a beer just because you are fun to talk to. I'd brew you a keg of beer if you get me a hi-res copy of that MS!!! 8)

Yes It Does

Postby Brian Stokes » 05 Jun 2009 22:00

Hi All,

Yup, I did pay for a high-res copy of Florius and have a high-res copy of the Getty, the latter of which I have been lucky enough to have paged through, with gloves. (Fab, I do envy you as the colours on the original Florius must have been amazing.) I am putting on this web presentation so that those who have never seen the Getty or Florius up close can do so. There are many other titles in my e-library gathering dust that over time I will do the same with. Just want to let those who have not seen them enjoy them and learn from them.

Heck, it's free to see. For those interested I can add a few more invitees to the list. Drop me a note at brian@scholasanmarco.org. Starts 5:00pm GMT.

Cheers to all,

Brian

Kim, Barry and myself logged in yesterday evening. We really enjoyed it, looking at the MS is so much detail was a revelation. Brian really knows his stuff as well. Our interpretations didnt always follow the same path, but thats what its all about :-). Bloody shame our microphone didnt work .

I was in there too. (Hello Dai et al.) I agree with everything that was said above, apart from it being lunch time for me ;-) It really is a nice looking manuscript, some of my current theories* are now under revision.

Unfortunately I don't think that there was a recording made, there was enough trouble getting the system working at the start. However, Brian seems very approachable so if there are enough people interested it may be worth contacting him. I was actually very surprised that there were so few people online.

* my theories = random thoughts I probably first heard from any number of other people or invented in my head ;-)

Another Soon ..

Postby Brian Stokes » 09 Jun 2009 22:30

Hi All,

I very much enjoyed sharing Florius and Getty last weekend. Technical issues aside I thought it flowed fairly well. I also myself learned a great deal from it (sometimes you learn far more in sharing information than hording it. I find out as much from teaching as from being taught.) I note particularly that Dan noticed that in one play the Scholar was holding to the Player's crossguard, a movement which I had completely overlooked.

As to taping the event, I fear I cannot as I am using high-res copies of multiple manuscripts and I believe that would be in violation of multiple copy right laws.

That said, I will be offering another webinar very soon. I have been very busy combining all four manuscripts onto a powerpoint presentation which I can use on the web, divided into their specific art (abrazare, one-handed sword, dagger, two-handed sword, etc.). Would everyone prefer a review of Florius alone or by way of a powerpoint presentation comparing each manuscript to every other manuscript?

Cordiali Saluti,

Another showing

Postby Brian Stokes » 23 Jun 2009 05:05

Hi all,

I am going to offer an online webinar on the abrazare of Fiore, comparing the actions in all of the manuscripts. I started the last one (not taking into account the tech problems that I had cleared up the night before - ahhh, yeah) at 9:00am PST time on a Saturday. Does that work for everyone?
