Greetings to the Gentlefolk of the SCA,

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

I am always looking for good articles for the Florilegium. If you have  
researched something in our period or you practice a little known art  
or craft, writing an article is an excellent way to introduce others  
to the work you've done. I'm especially interested in academic papers  
written for A&S contests because, unfortunately, few have time at such  
an event to read them. Even the judges. Getting them published in the  
Florilegium lets your hard word benefit the entire Known World.  Word  
format is the easiest for me to handle, but others are possible.

Thank you to the 1 percent or so of readers who have supported the  
Florilegium site by taking the time to select and look at one of the  
ads when you visited. Your clicking on the ads pays the operating  
costs of the site.

Lastly, if you have any suggestions, questions, comments or criticisms  
about the Florilegium, please feel free to email me.

A Blending of the Past and Present

Over the past twenty-one 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 called 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. A&S documentation and class  
handouts will also often work out well. I am especially interested in  
research papers submitted as A&S entries.

The Florilegium now has an RSS feed for those who want an immediate  
alert when new or updated files are uploaded to the website.

Advertisements on the site pay for its upkeep. If you enjoy the  
Florilegium, please click on an ad or two whenever you are there.
