The Academy of S. Gabriel, www.s-gabriel.org, is a group of
volunteers who research medieval names and armory. Their
primary purpose is to assist members of medieval re-
enactment groups like the SCA in finding historically
accurate medieval names and armory.
Much information can be found in the two libraries that the
Academy maintains, the Medieval Names Archive at
www.s-gabriel.org/names and the Medieval Heraldry Archive at
www.s-gabriel.org/heraldry, or in their archive of previous
reports, a search engine available at
If you are interested in chosing an authentic name or coat
of arms for a specific time period and place, then the
Academy will do their best to help.
