Description
  • The third from a series of monographs published by Heritage Malta, it focuses on the practical and symbolic uses of swords during the Order of St John’s tenure in Malta. Franco Davies’ historical research, as well as being an avid fencer himself, articulately merges the evolution of the edged weapons with the various types and uses, and their symbolism. This is very well complemented with an interesting insight on swordfights, the agility and discipline necessary, and highly illustrated throughout with a blend of images taken from period drawings, books, manuscripts and artefacts, together with modern-day shots of various sword fighting moves, giving this publication a unique appeal.
