Magister Beringois Fightbook
The oldest known verse on fighting
The fight-lore of Master H. Beringer or Beringois resembles that more commonly attributed to Johannes Liechtenauer. Yet this version of the verse is thought to originate on a date prior to the first recordings of Liechtenauer. It therefore raises speculations about the source of Liechtenauer's verse. This book is presented, for the first-time, the manuscript Ms.G.B.f.18a (Bl. 123va-b).
