The Higgins Armory Museum has a new exhibit coming October 26, 4 - 6 pm.

The Pen and the Sword: Martial Arts Manuals in Medieval and Renaissance Europe.

From the Higgins:

The power of the pen: is it really mightier than the sword? Find out at this first public look at our new exhibition featuring Joachim Meyer's compendium of traditional medieval martial arts from Germany, printed in 1600, and Giacomo di Grassi's Italian treatise on combat with the rapier, published in 1570. With a variety of original artifacts and printed materials of the period, the exhibition traces the evolution of arms and techniques in the late Middle Ages and Renaissance, as documented by the newly rediscovered treatise on these lost martial arts

I assume they meant "treatises", and by "newly rediscovered" they mean the modern revival of these arts.
