Outlands Kingdom ILoI dated 2016-02-03

Unto the Outlands College of Heralds, our respected friends and colleagues who give freely of their time to provide commentary, and all others who come by these letters, on this 2nd day of February, A.S. L (2016 CE), does Lord Gauvain Eisenbein send greetings on behalf of Baron Randal Carrick, White Stag Principal Herald.

Here follows the Kingdom of the Outlands' Letter of Presentation for January, 2016.

Anyone may comment upon the items found herein, and e-mail commentary to the herald's commentary list is encouraged. Your comments and suggestions are always welcome. Please have comments on items contained herein to Rampart Herald by February 16th, 2016, for the decision meeting on February 17th, 2016. As a reminder, the College of Arms requests commentary on all items, including appeals.

There has been a rather large uptick in the number of forms coming in containing tiny text that Castle's aging eyes cannot read and transcribe. Any such forms that are not accompanied by an electronic version suitable for cut and paste will be pended until an electronic version is provided.

Coming soon, I am planning to trail run the idea of a shared Google folder (and possibly Google forms) to collect electronic materials to make the submissions process smoother. I would like three or four local heralds to join me in the pilot project. Please email me at gauvain_eisenbein@yahoo.com if you are interested in participating in the pilot.

Finally, I will be leaving for a professional sabbatical later this month. For the next several months, my Lady wife will be collecting submissions and mailing them to me for processing. Because of this added delay, it is critical that submissions make it to me by the first of the month, or they will be delayed until the following month's letter.

27: Tariq ibn Yusuf ibn 'Askari al-Ghassani -Resub Household Name & Resub Badge

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Tariq ibn Yusuf ibn 'Askari al-Ghassani in January of 2015, via the Outlands.

Bayt al-`Askarī

Bayt al-`Askarī

Language (Arabic, 12th C.) most important.
Culture (Arabic, 12th C.) most important.
Meaning (Arabic, 12th C.) most important.

The name for this household is constructed based on samples of the Arabic futuwwa houses of the late 12th and early 13th Centuries and documented primarily from two articles by Dr. Mohsen Zakeri, Georg-August-Universität Göttingen:

1. "The futuwwa-"Houses" at the Time of Caliph al-Nasir." (1998) Excerpt from the Proceedings of the 19th Congress of the Union Européenne des Arabisants et Islamisants, retrieved from: https://www.academia.edu/6577675/The_futuwwa-_Houses_at_the_Time_of_Caliph_al-N%C3%A4sir

2. "Muslim "Chivalry" at the Time of the Crusaders: The Case of Usama B. Munqidh." (1996). Excerpt from an international colloquium on The Consequences of the Crusades for the Oriental Religious Communities. Retrieved from:

https://www.academia.edu/6577676/Muslim_CHIVALRY_at_the_time_of_the_Crusaders._The_case_of_Usama_b._ Munqidh

The futuwwa orders were structured as "urban associations" with bayt being used as the singular form translated as "house" (pl. "buyūt") (Zakeri, 1996). The names of the buyūt could be eponyms, as in thecase of the bayt al-Rahhās, or reflect other origins, such as the religious origin of the Mawlidīya (Zakeri, 1998).

The nisba al-`Askarī is documented in the attached excerpt from The

Encyclopedia of Islam s.n. Mansūr al-Namarī dated to 1005.

Thus, the construction of the household name follows the pattern of futuwwa houses with house + eponym/nisba: bayt al-`Askarī.

The previous submission, Askar al-Qal'a, was returned on the October 2015 LoAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2015/10/15-10lar.html#Outlands_returns22) with the following: { This household name was intended to mean "Army of the Fort". Although the Letter of Intent documented each name phrase to period, it did not show that units called askar have names and, if so, what forms these names take. Without this evidence, a household name based on askar cannot be registered.}

Consulting herald: Christopher Devereux (Citadel)

The previous submission, Per chevron inverted azure and Or, a scimitar in fess and three lozenges counterchanged, was returned on the July 2015 LoR (http://rampart.outlandsheralds.org/2015-06-lop/1507-lor.html) with the following: {Returned for redraw as division line lies between a per chevron inverted and a chief pointed.}

29: Unser Hafen, Barony of -Resub Order Name & Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in February of 1991, via the Outlands.

Chorus Portatum of Unser Hafen

(Fieldless) On a portcullis vert a captial G Or

Meaning (must be descriptive of the bardic arts) most important.

Submission follows the pattern of current Baronial awards and is a simple translation of 'chorus of the gates'.

The previous submission, Order of the Minstrels of Unser Hafen, was returned on the August 2014 LoAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2014/08/14-08lar.html#Outlands_returns23) with the following: { This order name sounds like a description: people who are minstrels in Unser Hafen. Therefore, this order name is too generic to be registered and must be returned.

This order name is also returned because it does not fit a period pattern of order names. The article cited in the Letter of Intent included a category for orders named after occupations. However, a reexamination of the evidence shows that there is not a pattern of just any occupation being used in such order names. The first example, the fool, appears to be based on a heraldic charge. The second, the Grail-Templars, is a religious order. As minstrels are not a religious order and do not wear distinctive dress that would make them a plausible heraldic charge, this submission does not fit those patterns.

As the term Minstrels does not have the same type of meaning as Builders or Keepers, this name cannot be registered using the grandfather clause.

Submissions heralds are reminded to provide documentation to support the elements within order names, not just the patterns used. We note that minstrels is dated to 1535 (Oxford English Dictionary).}

Consulting herald: Lady Safiyya (Unser Hafen)

The previous submission, (Fieldless) On a portcullis vert a G-Clef Or, was returned on the March 2014 LoAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2014/03/14-03lar.html#Outlands_returns16) with the following: { This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2 which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable." No evidence was presented that this is a period form of a G-clef, and commenters were unable to identify it.

Minstrels of Unser Hafen is a generic identifier.}


30: Unser Hafen, Barony of -Resub Order Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in February of 1991, via the Outlands.

Equites of Unser Hafen

Submitter has no desire as to gender.
Meaning (name must be descriptive of the equestrian arts) most important.

Name derived from the equestrian class of ancient Rome and combined iwth the pattern used by Unser Hafen for its other award

www.vroma.org/~bmcmanus/socialclass.html

The previous submission, Order of the Riders of the Portcullis of Unser Hafen, was returned on the August 2014 LoAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2014/08/14-08lar.html#Outlands_returns23) with the following: { This order name does not follow a period pattern of order names. We do not have a pattern of X of the heraldic charge, where X is a group of people. Without evidence of this pattern in period, this order name cannot be registered.

This order name does not follow the pattern of the barony's other registered order names such as Order of the Keepers of the Portcullis and Order of the Builders of the Portcullis. One may guard/keep a portcullis, and one may certainly build a portcullis, but riding one is not something that someone would normally do. Therefore, the barony cannot rely on the grandfather clause and we must return this name.

Submissions heralds are reminded to provide documentation to support the elements within order names, not just the patterns used. We note that riders is dated from at least the 14th century (Middle English Dictionary).}

Consulting herald: Lady Safiyya (Unser Hafen)


Thus ends the January Letter of Presentation.
