Peter von Danzig (fencer)

Cod. 44 A 8 also known as MS 1449, Bibliotheca dell'Academica Nazionale dei Lincei e Corsiniana, is a Fechtbuch compiled by Peter von Danzig in 1452. Danzig was a 15th-century German Fencing master. He was counted among the 16 members of the "society of Johannes Liechtenauer".

It reports teachings of Johannes Liechtenauer, Andres Lignitzer, Martin Hundfeld and Ott Jud, as well as original material by Peter von Danzig.

Andres Lignitzer (Andreas Liegnitzer, Andrew of Liegnitz) was an early 15th- or late 14th-century German fencing master, a member of the "society of Liechtenauer. His teachings are preserved by the mid 15th century masters Peter von Danzig and Paulus Kal. Paulus Kal name him together with his brother Jacob as members of the "Liechtenauer society". He may be identical with Andres Jud ("Andres the Jew") named in 3227a.

An English translation of the treatise was published by Tobler (2010).
