Minister of Arts and Sciences

The Minister of Arts and Sciences (or MoAS) is responsible for promoting and nurturing the research, study, and practice of period-style arts and sciences. The arts and sciences include creating items (calligraphy, needlepoint, soap-making, leatherworking, armorcrafting, etc.) as well as performance art (singing, dancing, theater, etc.).

Twice a year Oldenfeld hosts local competitions run by the MoAS that are open to anyone who would like to enter.

  • Novice Art/Sci is held during the Yule event and is specifically targeted to those with three years or fewer experience in a given category. This is an excellent opportunity to try something new in a warm and friendly environment.
  • The Baronial Championship is held during the Anniversary Event. The winner of this competition is the Oldenfeld Baronial Champion until the following year

The MoAS is a warranted officer. This means that they must be approved by a kingdom (state) -level officer of the same type. In this case, the MoAS of Oldenfeld must be approved by the Trimaris Minister of Arts and Sciences.

Here in the Barony of Oldenfeld our MoAS is Duke Ardien Dochesefford, who can be contacted by email at moas@oldenfeld.org.
