What we have done so far: List of publications and lectures from the “Coats of arms in practice” project

Livre des tournois du Roi René d’Anjou (Paris, BnF fr. 2693, fol. 70).

The project “Coats of arms in practice” aims to reassess medieval heraldry from the perspective of cultural history. In order to keep track of the results of the project, we publish here a list of the publications and lectures that emerged from this project so far. Of course, there is still more to come!

  1. Dear Torsten
    Thank you for showing all what you have made available on Heraldica Nova. I try to read and consult all the information, articles etc., but there is, I believe, (ich glaube) one problem: you write faster than I can read! Something like that. Hence my late grateful reaction to your marvellous overview.

    Dear Steen,
    I am trying to put a name to a coat-of-arms from 41 Edward III (1367 – 1368):-
    “A pierced mullet between three lozenges”
    Can you possibly help me?
