Greetings to those across the Known World,
Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for August.
I am always looking for new articles to add to these files. The
author keeps the copyright. Even if you don't think you can
write a polished article, many bibliographies and even class
handouts will be good enough to use. If you have such items that
you think might be of interest to others in the SCA, please
If you have comments, suggestions or criticisms of these files,
please feel free to contact me by email or at Pennsic. I will
be camping with the SPCA group in map location W10 this year.
If your group has a website, and is interested, I now publish
a version of this monthly article formatted for website use. Please
contact me for more details.
A Blending of the Past and Present
Over the past ten 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
Files that are new or have been updated are indicated by a special
marker in the filelists at the website. In addition, the file
-updated-files is a listing of these files in chronological order.
A copy of my complete filelist is available in most sections of the
website. This filelist or any of my files is also available from me
by email in either Word or text formats.
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.
For those who are traveling to Pennsic this year, particularly those
who are traveling there for their first time, there is a Pennsic section
in the Florilegium with a bunch of useful information. I will be there
again this year in case anybody wants to pass on their criticisms,
comments or suggestions to me directly or otherwise talk about the
