Re: From Marziano to the Cary-Yale and the Ludus Triumphorum

The Cary-Yale cards in Minchiate sequence except for C order placements of the virtues To meet the conditions of my hypothesis, it is necessary to have a Minchiate-based order but with something like a C order of virtues, so as to have something from which the later C orders could develop and also,...

Re: From Marziano to the Cary-Yale and the Ludus Triumphorum

From here on, my original posts are thoroughly reorganized and largely rewritten. From the Minchiate in 16 to the A orders in 22 and 97. First let me summarize the most important points so far: Cary-Yale surviving cards (order unspecified): Imperatrice, Imperator, Amore, Carro, Death, Faith, Hope, C...

Re: From Marziano to the Cary-Yale and the Ludus Triumphorum

This post, continuing my rewrite, is the second section of post 1 of the thread somewhat expanded. By arguing now against the possibilities I think are less likely, the reader is spared the tedium and possible confusion of going through them one by one through the three orders, only to find them dis...

Re: From Marziano to the Cary-Yale and the Ludus Triumphorum

I tried reorganizing in response to some suggestions given to me privately by Franco Pratesi. It is hidden in an appendix to my blog on Moakley, at http://moakleyupdated.blogspot.com/2017/03/appendix-ii-suits-virtues-and-visconti.html. However once I was done I saw how to make it even simpler, albei...

Re: Cardinal virtues series in two Florentine guild halls

It seems to me that the Sforza Castle Fortitude is holding hammers/mallets. They complement the drafting/measurement tools in the hands of Prudence. I couldn't follow your argument about the "World" on Fortitude's stylized shield. If it's an attribute of Fortitude, how does that show anything about ...

Here is the third possible A order with the four cardinal virtues all in a row: https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-zQ-3XLisCr4/XN9s4znkY7I/AAAAAAAANME/O2Wl7CanWhs8xKxrIFCeJGpeenHV_qaQQCLcBGAs/s1600/charts15d-page0001a.jpg Without virtues it is: https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-0gID3Llkcas/XN9s45qxncI/AAAAAAAANMI/...

Re: From Marziano to the Cary-Yale and the Ludus Triumphorum

I have made more additions, one in post 2 (table C5), thanks to some prodding by Pratesi in a private communication), and then in post 5, incorporating C5 into the discussion of C order matrices as well as some other considerations I had not made explicit. The gist of post 5 was to take the various ...

Re: From Marziano to the Cary-Yale and the Ludus Triumphorum

For anyone reading my third post before an hour ago, please note that I have made corrections. I had incorrectly transcribed the Sermones order into the matrix. The correction somewhat improved my argument, making a solution I wanted to reject (B3) even more improbable. For anyone reading my fourth ...

Re: From Marziano to the Cary-Yale and the Ludus Triumphorum

The virtueless 12 and its progeny in Milan The same 12 virtueless cards, in order, on my hypothesis, reach Lombardy and the court of Filippo Maria Visconti. Filippo, having read Marziano's treatise, can appreciate the history of the 3x4 matrix and its relationship to a 4x4 in a hierarchy by columns...

Re: From Marziano to the Cary-Yale and the Ludus Triumphorum

Note added May 13, 6:45 pm: I have corrected this post in line with my corrections in the previous post, having to do with the B order. They do not affect the argument. This is the continuation of my previous three posts in this thread. From this perspective, which came first, A. B, or C? Regarding ...
