The book of the order of chivalry by Ramon Llull( )

11 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ramon Llull (1232-1316) composed The Book of the Order of Chivalry between 1274 and 1276 as both an instrument of reform and an agent for change. His aim was to create and codify the rules for a unilateral Order of Chivalry. Loyalty to the Order, coupled with common sense, religious faith, education, and martial prowess, were in his view the keys to victory in the Holy Land and the Reconquista. The book was an immediate success and widely disseminated across Europe, eventually reaching a medieval English audience, though through a fanciful translation of a translation by William Caxton, in which most of the stylistic nuances of the Catalan original were lost. This new translation is directly from the original Catalan, so capturing for the first time in English the concise, austere style that characterises Llull's prose; it is presented with introduction and notes. It will be essential reading for all scholars and enthusiasts of medieval chivalric culture. Noel Fallows is Associate Dean and Professor of Spanish at the University of Georgia, and a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London

A cultural history of sport( Book )

1 edition published in 2021 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From gladiatorial combat to knightly tournaments and from hunting to games and gambling, sport has been central to human culture. A Cultural History of Sport presents the first extensive history from classical antiquity to today, covering all forms and aspects of sport. Chapter titles are identical across each of the volumes. This gives the choice of reading about a specific period in one of the volumes, or following a theme across history by reading the relevant chapter in each of the six. The themes (and chapter titles) are: The Purpose of Sport; Sporting Time and Sporting Space; Products, Training and Technology; Rules and Order; Conflict and Accommodation; Inclusion, Exclusion and Segregation; Minds, Bodies and Identities; Representation. The six volumes cover: 1 - Antiquity (800 BCE to 600 CE); 2 - Medieval Age (600 to 1450); 3 - Renaissance (1450 to 1650); 4 - Age of Enlightenment (1650 to 1800); 5 - Age of Industry (1800 to 1920); 6 - Modern Age (1920 to present). The page extent for the pack is approximately 1776pp. Each volume opens with Notes on Contributors and an Introduction and concludes with Notes, Bibliography, and an Index. A Cultural History of Sport is part of The Cultural Histories Series. Titles are available both as printed hardcover sets for libraries needing just one subject or preferring a one-off purchase and tangible reference for their shelves, or as part of a fully-searchable digital library available to institutions by annual subscription or on perpetual access (see www.bloomsburyculturalhistory.com)
The noble art of the sword : fashion and fencing in Renaissance Europe by Tobias Capwell( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Accompanying a major international exhibition at the Wallace Collection (May-September 2012), this book celebrates this artistic and cultural importance of the sword, as a symbol of power and prestige, as a flamboyant fashion statement and as an icon in the Age of Discovery. It will feature weapons and related works of art from the Wallace Collection as well as other great collections of arms and armour; never-before-seen works on fencing drawn from the library of the 8th Lord Howard de Walden; and portraits, prints and drawings that will help place the Renaissance civilian sword in its social and artistic context. It will also help explore the ancient origins since the first Olympiad of the modern era of 1896, revealing a place in history where art and sport converged. Exhibition: Wallace Collection, London (17.5.-16.9.2012)
A cultural history of sport in the medieval age( Book )

2 editions published in 2021 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A cultural history of sport in the Medieval Age covers the period 600 to 450. Lacking any viable ancient models, sport evolved into two distinct forms, divided by class. Male and female artistocrats hunted and knights engaged in jousting and tournaments, transforming increasingly outdated modes of warfare into brilliant spectacle. Meanwhile, simpler sports provided recreational distraction from the dangerously unsettled conditions of everyday life. Running, jumping, wrestling, and many ball games - soccer, cricket, baseball, golf, and tennis - had their often violent beginnings in this period. A Cultural History of Sport presents the first extensive history from classical antiquity to today, covering all forms and aspects of sport. Chapter titles are identical across each of the volumes. This gives the choice of reading about a specific period in one of the volumes, or following a theme across history by reading the relevant chapter in each of the six. The themes (and chapter titles) are: The purpose of sport; sporting time and sporting space; products, training and technology; rules and order; conflict and accommodation; inclusion, exclusion and segregation; minds, bodies and identities; representation

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

My aim in this dissertation is to place the Doctrinal de los caualleros in its proper historical context. The dissertation begins with a critical survey of Cartagena scholarship, from the fifteenth century to the present, in an attempt to place the author in some sort of critical perspective. Chapter II attempts to determine precisely who read the text, as well as the way in which the text was received by its intended audience. Chapter III discusses the meaning of the Doctrinal, outlines Cartagena's
