Stefan's Florilegium


This document is also available in: text or RTF formats.



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.

This is a listing of the SCA related files I have available as of the above date. The file sizes give a rough size of the files only. These numbers change because these files are constantly being added to and sometimes split when they become too big to be manageable. Each page is approximately 3K. The date beside each file name is the date it was last updated.


Please note: Those who have access to the World Wide Web can now read or download these files at: http://www.florilegium.org
