Bellifortis the work[edit]

This article is about Konrad Kyeser's work on the illustrated manual of military techology. Probably the section in the biography on Kyeser should be merged into this article. The article on Konrad Kyeser should just be about his biography. --Doug Coldwell talk 23:44, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

WHat "biography"? Keyser is known only as the author of this treatise. You could have proposed moving the article, instead you just created a WP:CFORK. I don't have an issue with the article residing at Bellifortis, but somehow needs to clean up the mess now. --dab (𒁳) 12:06, 10 July 2011 (UTC)


More is known of Kyeser's life than his authorship of this book. See the chapter on Natural Magic in Benedek Lang's Unlocked Books (2008). - MDS 23 March 2015 — Preceding unsigned comment added by MoreDeliciousSpeech (talkcontribs) 15:41, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

Alexander holding a rocket[edit]

Pardon me: but it seem to me, that this rocket ought to be rather the `holy lance´, than any rocket. The autor of that assumption should have red it in some pseudo-scientific work about Kyesers Bellifortis!--139.30.128.37 (talk) 16:56, 17 March 2011 (UTC)


The mistake is rather in the image provided: The Bellifortis DOES have a rocket, but it's on f.102r, rather than f.11v as pictured. -- MDS 23 March 2015
