Stefan's Florilegium Adds New Articles for November

The Honorable Lord Stefan has announced new articles added to the Florilegium for November 2002. Anyone who has done much research on matters medieval and is in the SCA will be familiar for Stefan's Florilegium, an exhaustive collection of information on nearly any topic of interest to SCAdians. Below is the latest list of articles available on his site.

I am always looking for new and interesting articles to add to the Florilegium. If you have written an article having to do with the Middle Ages or one that is useful in the re-creation of those times today, please consider sending me a copy to consider including. The copyright stays with the author and I accept updates and removal requests from the author. Even class handouts can often make a reasonable article if they will stand alone without the class.

I also create a version of this article for use on websites. If you are a maintainer of a website and you would like to get on my list of people who recieve this article, please contact me.

A Blending of the Past and Present

Over the past thirteen 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/

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.

If you find a bad link or other problem with the Florilegium website, please let me know. Once I know about a problem I can usually fix it that day but if no one alerts me to a problem it may be months before I notice it myself.

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.
