Arts & Sciences Research Paper #3. A Small Comparison of the Rapier Styles of Ridolfo Capo Ferro and Salvator Fabris

Tags

, ,

Our third A&S Research Paper comes to us from Master Donovan Shinnock, of the Shire of Quintavia, and is drawn from his study of the historical masters of rapier fighting. (Prospective future contributors, please check out our original Call for Papers.)

A Small Comparison of the Rapier Styles of Ridolfo Capo Ferro and Salvator Fabris

Portraits of Capo Ferro and Fabris

Salvator Fabris and Ridolfo Capo Ferro are two of the most recognizable names in Italian rapier. Fabris’ manual, “Lo Schermo, overo Scienza d’Arme” (“On Fencing, or Knowledge of Arms”) was printed in 1606, sponsored by the King of Denmark. Capo Ferro’s manual, “Gran Simulacro dell’Arte e dell’Uso della Scherma” (“Great Representation of the Art and Use of Fencing”) was published in 1610, in Siena, Tuscany. While Fabris and Capo Ferro both drew on the same basic underpinnings of Italian rapier theory and applied them to the same ends, the application of these principles looks very different. However, despite these visual and mechanical differences, the end results are similar. But even with the similarity of the end results, some interesting differences between the two masters can be found.

Ambassadors Gather to Host the Arts & Sciences

Tags

imagesOn September 12, ambassadors are coming from all corners of the East Kingdom – Anglespur, Bergental, Carolingia, Concordia, Rusted Woodlands and Smoking Rocks, to share their enthusiasm, knowledge and skills.  The Arts and Sciences Salon, in Scotia, New York, will be a day full of explorations into a wide variety of interests.

Of course the topics you might expect will be covered – culinary arts, embroidery, and glass bead making. But there will also be those areas of interest that might surprise you, such as dance, health sciences, heraldry and parchment making. A total of 20 different topics are planned for the day. There will be something for everyone, young and old, beginner and seasoned pro. Less structured than a schola, this will be an event where everyone is encouraged to share what they know.

Some ambassadors are planning informal classes throughout the day. Others will structure their room for round table discussions, demonstrations, or one-to-one instruction. In every case there will be a chance for hands-on work and play. In addition to rooms devoted to specific arts or sciences, a reference library is planned, which will include interesting and hard to find books and publications on many topics to advance your research, and room to relax and discuss whatever art or science takes your fancy.images (8)

Everyone is encouraged to bring a project to work on during the day or exhibit at the grand A&S Display. This will be a chance to highlight the great skills of the East Kingdom, and mingle with all the day’s participants. Be sure to bring your tokens to show your appreciation.

From the Prince and Princess concerning the Event Calendar

The Prince & Princess at Pennsic 44 Opening CeremoniesHi, Gazette Readers!

We noticed that the kingdom calendar on the East Kingdom website is a bit light on events for the winter. We are very much looking forward to traveling around the kingdom and visiting as many of you as we can manage over the course of our reign, but cannot plan or schedule a visit if there is no event for us to go to!

We understand that many of you are busy planning events and may not have worked out the details yet, but we implore you to publish as much information as you can for these, especially if you have the date set. So, when your group decides to host an event, make sure you’re submitting that to be published on eastkingdom.org!

So, if you’d like to host a really good looking Princess (maybe even Queen by then), put your events on the calendar. Really, who doesn’t want to hang out with Caoilfhionn for 12th Night? I mean, she does give the best gifts.

We look forward to seeing you on our tour!

-Brennan & Caoilfhionn
