  • Painting Description

    "Soldiers armed with guns, lances and crossbows, from the Berner Chronik" is a notable illustration found within the Berner Chronik, a seminal work by Diebold Schilling the Elder, created around the period of 1445 to 1485, with the specific illustration dated to 1483. This artwork, crafted by an anonymous artist, stands as a significant historical document, providing insight into the military practices and armaments of the late 15th century. The Berner Chronik, or the Chronicle of Bern, is a comprehensive account of the history of Bern, Switzerland, and this particular illustration is one of many that embellish the manuscript, bringing to life the events and characters described in the text.

    The illustration depicts a group of soldiers equipped with an array of weaponry that was typical for the era, including guns, lances, and crossbows. This diversity in armament reflects the transitional period in military technology during the late Middle Ages, where traditional weapons like the lance and crossbow coexisted with early forms of firearms. The detailed depiction of the soldiers and their equipment provides valuable information on the military attire, the structure of the weapons, and the tactics employed in warfare during this time.

    As an anonymous work, the illustration's artist remains unknown, yet the craftsmanship and historical accuracy of the piece suggest a creator with intimate knowledge of military practices and the artistic conventions of the period. The inclusion of this illustration in the Berner Chronik not only serves to enhance the narrative of the text but also contributes to our understanding of the social and military history of 15th-century Europe.

    The Berner Chronik, with its richly illustrated pages, is considered an important cultural artifact, and "Soldiers armed with guns, lances and crossbows" exemplifies the blend of artistry and historical documentation that makes the chronicle a valuable resource for historians and art historians alike. This illustration, along with the entire manuscript, is preserved as a testament to the historical events, practices, and artistic achievements of the late medieval period.
