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 ...

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

Added note: For anyone who had read this before May 13 at 6 pm Pacific Daylight Time (3 am May 14 in Europe), please note that I have now made some changes, as I had transcribed the B order incorrectly. Fortunately it did not hurt my argument. Ferrara orders using Cary-Yale cards Here for reference ...

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

Cary-Yale cards in the C or Lombard orders Now I am going to see whether the known Lombard or C orders yield an order of truimphs in which the suits can be connected with the triumphal cards by way of the cardinal virtue, such that each of the four virtues appears in a different row of a Marziano-s...

From Marziano to the Cary-Yale and the Ludus Triumphorum

When new games appear, they either involve a rather large leap from what came before or represent an incremental step from something else, of which some of the steps might become lost over time. Chess is an example of something that developed incrementally. Most popular card games have predecessor g...
