Database on Pas d’armesentrepreneur
In order to make the data used in our book, website and virtual exhibition more accessible to both scholars and the general public, we have created an online database in Nodegoat. This research database contains details of all pas d’armes held between c.1420 and c.1520 (i.e. exact dates and locations, names of entrepreneurs and challengers, composition of teams, type of combat, theatrical scenario, ephemeral architecture, guests and spectators, etc.). The database can be searched by Events, i.e. all such tournaments that can be classified as pas d’armes as they are normally referred to in the sources or secondary literature; People, i.e. all people involved in the pas d’armes as combatants, judges, spectators, guests, etc.; and Locations, i.e. all towns, villages, castles and other places where these events took place. The database will be available from the end of January 2024.
