Treatise or Instruction for Fencing: By Hieronymus Calvacabo of Bologna and Patenostrier of Rome 46.81 KB - In 1597 the great French traveller Seigneur de Villamont translated a fencing manuscript by his teacher, Girolamo (in French Hieronyme) Cavalcabo of Bologna, along with a shorter piece by Paternostrier of Rome. This treatise seems to have brought Cavalcabo to the attention of the French court and he, and later his son César, would be invited to teach the future Louis XIII. This treatise may represent survival of the great fencing tradition of Bologna, and could have influenced the development of French swordplay in the early seventeenth century. Now translated into English, this treatise offers an insight into the fighting style of the period. Do you want to download or read a ebook? It is available in PDF or epub format in the source
