Gideon destroys the altar Gideon's fleece The Midianites are ousted
Gideon destroys the altar of Baal, which was his father's.  Detail shows an  example of a tunic with two ways of wearing the sleeves: (a) slip your arms through the sleeves in a traditional manner, or (b) take your arms out of the sleeves and slip your arms through an open arm-slit in the bodice area (a slit on both the left and right side of the chest), thereby allowing for a cooling effect, whilst the unused sleeves hang at your sides.  A unique garment. Details show: 1 -great detail of a knight's belt2 -a knight wearing an above-the-knee length hauberk with what appears to some sort of tunic or light gambeson showing from underneath at the bottom of the hauberk.  3 -a spearhead with a reinforcing ridge or rib running down the center of the blade.  4 -what is described as a "pitch fork", but is used as a weapon of war.  5 -irrefutable evidence that chainmailled finger-gloves (albeit attached to the sleeves of the hauberk) did indeed exist much earlier than the "late" 1300's as many enthusiasts of "authenticity" tend to argue.  There is a common tendency to argue that chainmaille protection for individual fingers did not come into use until almost the end of the 13th century; however, this image refutes that belief.  6 -closer view of the chainmaille finger-protection.  7 -another closer view (not quite as sharply focused due to the extreme magnification (600%).  8 -view of the other hand of the same knight, wearing the chainmaille "finger-gloves". The Israelites attack and pursue the Midianites.   Details show: 1 -example of a battle sword with a double-fuller.   2 -excellent detail of engraving work on the blade of this battle axe.  3 -a spearhead4 -an embossed heater-shield5 -two more examples of a horse bridle and bit6 -excellent view of how a saddle was secured to a horse - a standard girth, but the "breast collar" appears to be a large, long belt going from the back of the saddle (where it buckles together) around the horse's chest to the back of the saddle again.  7 -a period-style lantern8 -good detailed view of a period-style trumpet9 -good view of a full length (knee-length) hauberk.
Detail Tunic with "convertable" sleeves. Details 1A knight's belt. 2Tunic or light gambeson worn under a hauberk. 3A spearhead with a reinforcing ridge running down the center. 4A pitch-fork used as a weapon of war. 5Chainmaille "Finger-gloves". 6Closer view of "finger-chainmaille". 7Another closer view - chainmaille finger protection. 8Left hand of knight wearing chainmaille finger protection. Detail 1Battle sword with a double-fuller. 2Detailed engraving on the blade of a battle axe. 3A spearhead. 4An embossed heater-shield. 5Two more examples of a horse bridle and bit. 6A breast collar of a horse's tack setup. 7A period-style lantern. 8A period-style trumpet. 9A full length hauberk.

Jephthah returns home Jephthah's daughter laments Jephthah's sacrifice Abimelech slays his brothers
Jephthah returns home to his daughter after victorious battle.  Details show:  1 -a heraldic type of flag, called a "Banner", attached (in this case) to the head of a spear.  Typically, they were vertical in orientation (as seen), usually 2 "units" wide by 3 "units" high, and represented a king, baron, overload or knight.  It preceded him in battle as a sign of his feudal rights.  2 -a square Timbrel (hand-held drum).  3 -example of how an excessively long dress was "carried" - folds of the dress were tucked into the lady's belt. Jephthah's daughter laments with friends in the mountains. Jephthah sacrifices his daughter to fulfill his vow.  Detail shows another style of period footwear - there appears to be a flap folded over the top of the foot. Details show:  1 -a battle sword with a deep, wide fuller2 -probably one of the best views ever of a sword's scabbard: You can clearly see the sword-belt and attaching "frog"; also, there is a gold/brass/bronze metal tip on the tip of the scabbard.  There would also appear to be some circular tooling in the leather of the scabbard.  3 -another example of a tunic with two ways of wearing the sleeves: (a) slip your arms through the sleeves in a traditional manner, or (b) take your arms out of the sleeves and slip your arms through an open arm-slit in the bodice area (a slit on both the left and right side of the chest), thereby allowing for a cooling effect, whilst the unused sleeves hang at your sides.  A unique garment.
Details 1 2A square timbrel (hand-held drum) 3Method of carrying an excessively long dress. Detail A style of period footwear - a flap is folded over the top of the foot. Details 1A battle sword with a deep, wide fuller. 2A sword scabbard, with great detail. 3Tunic with "convertable" sleeves.
