Greetings to those across the Known World,
Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for February, detailing what
is new in the Florilegium this month..
If you have written any SCA-oriented articles for your local
newsletter, please consider sending them for me for the Florilegium.
You've already put in effort researching and writing such an article,
and having it in the Florilegium is one way of helping the Known
World as well. Often a class handout or a piece of A&S documentation
can also work well. I would especially love to get any papers entered
in A&S contests. The copyright remains with the author and I accept
updates and revisions as you learn more.
I will be attending Gulf Wars in four weeks or so and will be staying
with my barony across the road from the Anstoerra gate. If you are
going to be there, please feel free to stop by and visit. My banner,
which can be seen on the Florilegium site, should be hanging on our
You can also catch me at my class about the Florilegium on Wednesday
or Friday or my usual hands-on pewter casting classes on Tuesday or
A Blending of the Past and Present
Over the past seventeen 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 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. A&S documentation
and class handouts will also often work out well.
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
