The Dueling Ground: An Online Seminar
March 5 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST $30.00
Join us for a special online seminar March 5th!
This seminar with Jared Kirby will explore the origins, growth and ultimate decline of the Duel in Europe. We will focus on Vincentio Saviolo’s 16th century dueling code which Jared presents in A Gentleman’s Guide to Duelling.
Once the historical protocols of a duel are understood, the class will examine historical accounts of duels (such as the one pictured above) to discuss how many actually followed the correct procedures:
-If you duel with billiard balls, is that OK?
-Can a dog actually challenge a man to a duel?
-Did duels happen in the 20th Century?
Make sure to bring your favorite dueling stories as well so we can ascertain if it’s really a duel!
