Stefan's files for April

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

Greetings unto those upon these various mail lists,

I am sending a copy of my monthly article on what is new in my Florilegium
files to various new SCA mail lists this month. If those on these lists have 
objections to me doing this, please email me and I will refrain from doing 
this in the future. If there is anyone, especially local newsletter editors,
who would like me to add them to the list of people I send this to, please
send me a request giving your name, email address, group and newsletter name.
Editors may reprint my articles if they pay attention to the restrictions
below. While a copy of your newsletter is not required, a notice that you
are doing so would be nice so I can track things. A copy would be appreciated

There are also a number of short articles in my files that make great articles
for newsletters. Please check the articles for any reprint restrictions. I
am also interested in adding more articles from their authors.


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.
