Manuscripts

Probably the largest collection of HEMA resources is Wiktenauer  where you can find a vast majority of the manuscripts and technics, with original texts and translation. However, there are not that many you can download, if you want, like me, to be able to print them.
Therefore I have tried to compile a library of downloadable manuscripts that is available online.

There are three categories:

  • Online single manuscripts: Single manuscripts already online, where you will have a link to the page.
  • Online collections. Already compiled collections online.
  • Wiktenauer compilations: These are the texts from Wiktenauer, only I have put them into a document, so its easy to print it.

 

Wiktenauer compilations:

Andres Lignitzer – Short Sword and Sword and Buckler
