L art chevaleresque du combat Le maniement des armes travers les livres de combat XIVe XVIe si cles
Cet ouvrage invite le lecteur à se plonger dans les livres de combat, littérature technique codifiant des gestes martiaux ; mais plus encore à approcher les hommes qui pratiquaient cet art dans les sociétés médiévales et prémodernes. L'épée, l'armure et le cheval sont autant d'objets symboliques passés sous l'oeil d'un archéologue, d'un historien de l'art et d'un historien qui permettent d'aborder l'art du combat. Les différents chapitres traitent du combat civil, du combat en armure et du combat à cheval. Une des forces de ce regard interdisciplinaire sur l'art chevaleresque du combat provient du fait que l'ensemble des auteurs allient recherches académiques et pratique des arts martiaux historiques européens, offrant ainsi une mise en perspective tout en profondeur à l'étude de cette littérature technique. Le livre est largement illustré par des images tirées des plus importants traités des XIVe et XVIe siècles.

In Praise of Folly
Erasmus was the most facetious man, and the greatest critic of his age. He carried on a reformation in learning at the same time he advanced that of religion; and promoted a purity of style as well as simplicity of worship. This drew on him the hatred of the ecclesiastics, who were no less bigotted to their barbarisms in language and philosophy, than they were to their superstitious and gaudy ceremonies in religion; they murdered him in their dull treatises, libelled him in their wretched sermons, and in their last and most effectual efforts of malice, they joined some of their own execrable stuff to his compositions: of which he himself complains in a letter addressed to the divines of Louvain. He exposed with great freedom the vices and corruptions of his own church, yet never would be persuaded to leave her communion. The papal policy would never have suffered Erasmus to have taken so unbridled a range in the reproof and censure of her extravagancies, but under such circumstances, when the public attack of Luther imposed on her a prudential necessity of not disobliging her friends, that she might with more united strength oppose the common enemy; and patiently bore what at any other time she would have resented. Perhaps no man has obliged the public with a greater number of useful volumes than our author; though several have been attributed to him which he never wrote. His book of Colloquies has passed through more editions than any of his others: Moreri tells us a bookseller in Paris sold twenty thousand at one impression.
The Book of Rites Li Ji
The Book of Rites, literally the Record of Rites, is a collection of texts describing the social forms, administration, and ceremonial rites of the Zhou Dynasty as they were understood in the Warring States and the early Han periods. The Book of Rites, along with the Rites of Zhou (Zhouli) and the Book of Etiquette and Rites (Yili), which are together known as the "Three Li (San li)," constitute the ritual (li) section of the Five Classics which lay at the core of the traditional Confucian canon (Each of the "five" classics is a group of works rather than a single text). As a core text of the Confucian canon, it is also known as the Classic of Rites, which some scholars believe this was the original title before it was changed by Dai Sheng.
