Greetings to the Gentles of the Known World,

Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for July.

As you can see below a number of these new files are articles which  
were submitted to me by their authors. I am always looking for good  
articles on most medieval and SCA subjects. The copyright remains  
with the author and there is no requirement that an article not be  
published previously. In fact, if I know where an article was first  
published I will give word fame to that publication with a note in  
the article.

I am also especially interested in papers written for A&S contests.  
Few people have the time to read through a long paper at an event.  
However by letting me publish your A&S paper in the Florilegium you  
let others across the Known World benefit from the research that you  
have done. You are free to update it at any time in the future.

A Blending of the Past and Present

Over the past eighteen 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
