Abstract

This study proposes reading of Tirant lo Blanch in the light of Vegetius&#8217; Epitoma rei militaris, the military manual par excellence of the Middle Ages. Indeed, in the prologue to what we now consider a chivalric novel, Joanot Martorell describes his book as a manual, in which military practice, beyond mere exercise and sport, is primarily an art that offers the hero a means of social advancement and the chance to command an empire.
