Greetings to the Gentles of the Known World,
Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for the month of November
detailing the new files in the Florilegium this month.
This message should be going to all kingdom mailing lists. If you are
on another list, so you have seen this, but you don't see it on your
kingdom list, please let me know so I can work on finding and fixing
I also create a version of this article each month for websites,
which includes links for each file. If you run a website and would
like to be added to my monthly list to get a copy of the web version
of this article, please contact me.
If you have written an article that you, or your friends, think would
be a good addition to the Florilegium, please send a copy to me. The
author keeps the copyright to any material I use and its a good way
to help out others all around the Known World. If you have an idea
for an article you would like to see, please email me with the
suggestion and I will add it to my "Article Ideas list" which
hopefully will get added to the site soon.
A Blending of the Past and Present
Over the past sixteen years in an ongoing effort, I have been
collecting bits of useful information from various newsgroups, mail
lists and articles submitted to me by their authors. In order to make
this information available to others, I have placed this information
in a series of files I call Stefan's Florilegium.
The Florilegium is on the web at: http://www.florilegium.org
I am always interested in new articles. If you have written an
article that would be of interest to others in the SCA, please send
it to me for possible inclusion in the Florilegium. Contact me for
I am also interested in volunteers who might be interested in helping
me maintain the Florilegium. Everything from collecting materials,
editing and web work is needed. Again, please contact me for more
For those who would like to help support the Florilegium project in
another way, I have added a PayPal donation button on the top page of
the site. Any donations, while not tax deductible, do help pay the
overhead costs of keeping the site running.
