Die meisten Menschen sind der Ansicht, dass es im Mittelalter keine Hobbys gab. Immerhin hatten die Leute damals ganz andere Probleme, genügend Essen zum Überleben anzusammeln beispielsweise. Und überhaupt, je nach gesellschaftlicher Schicht und mittelalterlicher Epoche hatten Normalsterbliche gar keine Zeit für irgendwas, ein typischer Arbeitstag dauerte rund zwölf Stunden. Felder mussten beackert, Tiere gepflegt, Kleidung gestrickt, gesponnen und gefärbt werden. Wen wundert es also, dass die Freizeitgestaltung für die meisten eine untergeordnete Rolle spielte? Dass es damals keine Hobbys gab, ist dennoch ein Irrglaube. In diesem Sinne wollen wir kurz ein anderes Thema aufgreifen: Der Sonntag wurde für Christen bereits im späten Römisch...

Most people are of the view that there was no hobbies in the middle ages. After all, the people had at that time quite different problems, to collect enough food to survive, for example. And anyway, depending on the societal layer and medieval era mortals had no time for anything, a typical work day lasted around 12 hours. Fields had to be true, animals kept, knitted clothing, spun and dyed. Surprising therefore that the leisure for most played a minor role? A misconception is that there was at that time no hobbies. In this sense we want to access a different topic briefly: Sunday was for Christians in the late Roman...

VANCOUVER – The flash and sound of ancient weapons clashing inside a swordfighting academy in downtown Vancouver can be intimidating to people on the street. But those with the courage to enter will discover that anyone can become a modern-day knight, says Maestro d’Armi Devon Boorman, the master of arms at Academie Duello. “It’s something they really can do,” said Boorman, who is passionate about reviving the lost art of swordplay. “The big barrier to breakthrough for people is to not just see that it’s something performers do, but that it’s a real martial art.” Global interest in swordsmanship has exploded over recent years, beginning when Hollywood released the “Lord of the Rings” movie, said Boorman. The blockbuster inspired a multit...
