Greetings to the Gentles of the SCA-Cooks list,
Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for June detailing what is
new in the Florilegium this month.
I am always looking for good articles for the Florilegium. If you have
researched a little known subject in our period or you practice a
little known art or craft writing an article is an excellent way to
introduce others to the work you've done. I'm especially interested in
academic papers written for A&S contests because, unfortunately, few
have time at such an event to read them. Even the judges. Getting them
published in the Florilegium lets your hard word benefit the entire
My standard policy is that the copyright remains with the author and I
will accept updates or removal requests at any time. So you don't have
to wait until you have that "perfect" article. You can update it as
you learn more. In the meantime, folks can be learning from your paper
and you might get some good, useful feedback. Even if your article has
been previously published elsewhere, I'm happy to consider it. Not
everyone around the Known World has seen your kingdom's A&S issue or
your local group's newsletter. I'm happy to give credit to the
publication where an article was first published by adding a notation
to an article.
A Blending of the Past and Present
Over the past nineteen 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 have added an RSS feed for the Florilegium website. If you are
already reading RSS feeds, please add the Florilegium RSS feed to find
out when new and updated files as well as new features get added to
the website. If you are unfamiliar with RSS, or Real Simple
Syndication, it is a method built into many web browsers, and also
available as a separate tool, which alerts you when the contents of
your favorite websites have been changed.
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 especially interested in
