Greetings to the Gentles of the Known World,

Here is a copy of my monthly Florilegium article for January,  
detailing what is new in the Florilegium this month.

If you have written an article for a newsletter or you have a class  
handout or A&S paper, please send me a copy to possibly add to the  
Florilegium. This way folks across the Known World can learn from the  
work you've done. My preference is to get such items in Word or RTF  
format since then they are easily adapted to the various formats  
files are available in the Florilegium, but I can accept other formats.

Class handouts often are useable in the Florilegium as well. Since my  
policy is to accept updates, you can always replace such a handout  
with a more polished article later. In the meantime, folks can learn  
from your handout and perhaps you will encourage them to try  
something new or research a new area.

The two last months I have gotten bounce messages from both people  
who had signed up to forward this monthly article to the Trimaris  
list, Baroness Adsiltia and Jacquetta Grimaldi. I would appreciate it  
if someone would forward this message to the Trimaris list, and/or  
these two people. Or if there is someone on that list who would like  
to take over forwarding this monthly article there, please contract  
me. I don't think the Gentles of that list have been getting this  
article and some of them there might appreciate seeing it.

Best Wishes for the coming year!
A Blending of the Past and Present

Over the past seventeen 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 collection 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  
more details.

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
