Festschrift to honor Magistra Jaelle of Armida

Many list subscribers have read about the recent passing of former Laurel Queen of Arms, Magistra Jaelle of Armida. Friends and associates of Magistra Jaelle are attempting to create a festschrift in her honor.

Dear friends and fellow Society members,

The death of our beloved friend Jaelle of Armida is the sorrowful occasion of this call for contributions. It is in memory of this truly exceptional, learned, generous and strong-willed lady that we intend to put together a collection of research articles in the form of a festschrift to be published both in print and through the Drachenwald website.

If you wish to contribute, we will happily accept research articles, including translations of period sources, in any of the following fields:

    cookery and dietetics
    period manners and customs

Contributions should be no longer than 5,500 words (ca fifteen 12pt, 1.5 spaced A4 pages) and will be needed by 19 July 2013 (i.e. the first day of Pennsic War) in electronic form. If you would like to volunteer to contribute an article, please let us know by 1 June.

Needless to say, we want to publish original research to which you hold the copyright and which is fully sourced, with citations and bibliography. If you wish to include images, please obtain and include the permission of the copyright holder (or, if you hold copyright, just include it). Please do not embed images within word-processed documents. Instead, send them as separate attachments. Do feel free to make suggestions as to where images should be placed within the text.

Any questions you have can be addressed to the editors:
