Greetings to the Gentles of the SCA-Cooks list,
Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for March, detailing what is
new in the Florilegium this month.
I am always looking for new and interesting material to showcase in
the Florilegium. This could anything having to do with the Middle
Ages or the recreation of those times, from a short article you wrote
for a local newsletter to a Master's Thesis. Yes, there is at least
one in the Florilegium. Class handouts or Arts & Sciences
documentation can also work well, if they can stand alone without the
class or the object that they are supporting. Since I take updates
at any time, either of these could be replaced with a more formal
article later. In the meantime, others will find them useful and you
may get suggestions and additional documentation to improve your work.
If any of you are going to be at Gulf Wars next week, please consider
dropping by and visiting. I will be camping with the Barony of Bryn
Gwlad which will be camping across the road from the Ansteorra gate.
I will also be teaching my class about the Florilegium twice and my
hands-on pewter casting class. The first will be in the class area
and the second in the Artisan's Row area.
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.
