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
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.
