Stefan's files for March

Poster: "Mark.S Harris" <rsve60@email.sps.mot.com>

Greetings unto the gentles of the Kingdom of Meridies,

I am not on this maillist, but I thought some of you might be interested in
my monthly article. If there are any local newsletter editors who would like
this monthly article sent to you by email (usually around the 10th of the
month) just send me your name, email, group and newsletter name.

If you do not think this is appropriate for this list, let me know and I will
refrain from posting it here in future months.

Stefan li Rous

A Blending of the Past and Present       

Over the past seven 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 Stefanís Florilegium.

Florilegium - (literally, "a gathering of flowers").  In medieval times, 
Florilegia were collections of choice tidbits (from Ovid, Aristotle, various 
popes, church scholars, etc.) arranged topically. Typically, a florilegium is 
huge, encyclopedic, and contains only choice selections from particular works.

Anyone interested in these files is encouraged to request a copy of my complete
filelist by email. I can send this filelist or any of these files by email or
by copying them to a computer diskette if you donít have WWW access.

Those of you who have World-Wide-Web (WWW) access can get these files at:
