Greetings to the populace of the Known World,

Here is a copy of my monthly article detailing what is new in
my Florilegium files, intended for May publication.

I cannot currently send this article to the Trimaris mail list
because that list is closed to non-members of that list. I 
also believe there are some other kingdom lists  that are closed 
or have recently become so. If you think this monthly message 
would be of use to those reading such a list and you would like 
to be my ambassador by forwarding my monthly message to a 
particular list each month, please let me know.

Remember if you are looking for articles to fill some of that
white space in your publication, there are a number of short
articles in the Florilegium. Reprint permission is given at the
bottom of most article files. If you reprint an article from the
Florilegium, please mention in your publication that you found
the article in the Florilegium and send me notification, so I
can track which articles are being reprinted.

If you have any suggestions for the Florilegium, please email


A Blending of the Past and Present       

Over the past ten 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:

Files that are new or have been updated are indicated by a special 
marker in the filelists at the website. In addition, the file 
-updated-files is a listing of these files in chronological order.

A copy of my complete filelist is available in most sections of the 
website. This filelist or any of my files is also available from me 
by email in either Word or text formats.

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.
