Grants of Arms to the Guilds of London, 1439–1530

For a recently published essay on the rhetoric surrounding corporate coats of arms in grants, confirmations and augmentations of arms issued to London’s livery companies, I gathered quite a bit of information on these documents.

Devises, lettres, chiffres et couleurs : un code emblématique 1350-1550, sous la direction de Laurent Hablot, Miguel Metelo de Seixas et Matteo Ferrari, Lisbonne, IEM – Instituto de Estudos Medievais, 2022.

Parmi les signes à travers lesquels l’individu exprime son identité à la fin du Moyen Âge, les devises intriguent et interrogent. Le caractère souvent insolite de leurs figures que l’on peine parfois à identifier et, dans de nombreux cas, les mots ou les chiffres qui leur sont associés, tant en latin qu’en vernaculaire, posent de fréquents problèmes de lecture et d’interprétation. Code emblématique créé entre Angleterre et France dans...

Wappen und Heraldik in der deutschen Wikipedia III

In fast allen Einführungen in die Heraldik, die zwischen den 1880er Jahren und bis in die Gegenwart erschienen sind, wird die Geschichte des eigenen Fachs mit sehr ähnlichen Schwerpunkten, oft auch sehr ähnlichen Worten meist knapp dargestellt.
