Greetings to the Gentles on the SCA-Cooks list,

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

If you have written an article for a local SCA newsletter please send  
it to me to consider putting it into the Florilegium. Let more than  
just your local group take advantage of the time and effort you spent  
researching and writing your article. My standard policy is that the  
copyright remains with the author and I will accept updates or  
removal requests at any time. I want to get good articles out where  
all in the SCA can use them. Let's stand on each other's shoulders  
and together advance our knowledge of the Middle Ages.

If you are a newsletter editor, remember that there are a number of  
short articles in the Florilegium which make good articles for  
newsletters. Most have the needed permissions at the end of the article.

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  
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  

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.
