Gladiatoria (MS German Quarto 16) is a German fencing manual probably created between 1435 and 1440.[1] The original currently rests in the holdings of the Biblioteka Jagiellońska in Kraków, Poland. The MS German Quarto 16 is part of the Gladiatoria group, a series of several German manuscripts from the 15th century that share the same art style and cover the same material, and is the manuscript for which the complex is named. The Gladiatoria manuals are interesting texts in that they seem to be contemporary with the tradition of Johannes Liechtenauer, but not directly influenced by it.[citation needed]

The core of the Gladiatoria group is a series of devices of armored fencing following the traditional progression of a judicial duel: beginning with spears and small shields called ecranches, moving to longswords, then employing daggers on foot and on the ground. (Traditional dueling would begin on horseback before going to foot combat, and the ecranche is designed for mounted fencing, but Gladiatoria skips that stage entirely.) The German Quarto 16 adds to this material a series of unique teachings on a number of other weapons.
