A Blending of the Past and Present
Because I am now getting materials for my files from a variety of sources in
addition to the Rialto (rec.org.sca) including articles sent to me by email
and several mail lists, I have decided to rename my files, StefanÕs Florilegium.
Florilegium - (literally, "a gathering of flowers"). In medieval times,
Florilegia were collections of choice tidbits (from Ovid, Aristotle, various
popes, church scholars, etc.) arranged topically. Typically, a florilegium is
huge, encyclopedic, and contains only choice selections from particular works.
Anyone interested in these files is encouraged to request a copy of my complete
filelist by email. I can send this filelist or any of these files by email or
by copying them to a computer diskette if you donÕt have WWW access.
