Seems we cross paths alot. (re: Nautical Guilds) But to answer your
The Curia is a group of SCA Members who wish to renact the Medieval
Chruch acting as members of the clergy. We hope to foster a true
Medievval feel in the SCA.
Honor before Victory has the same focus in reference to chivalric
As far as lowland scots go, this is important to me as I am one
mundanely. My family comes from Burwick upon Tweed, on the scottish
english border. As far as highland ware in period, kilts don't
actually come into Woge until mid 17th century, before that, celtic
and pictish highlanders clothing was closer to Roman or Viking.
Another of my pet peeves, is hollywood pirates in the SCA. An
attitude I know you share. It drives me berserk. You see a pirate
camp full of cutlasses likewise I don't carry a basket hilt claymore,
as it is not in period either. When I do carry a long blade, it is
either an arming sword, a good short sword of Roman design, or a
crusade vintage Norman Broad Sword. My non period swords are for my
mundane collection only.
On the clerical discussion, I have much to learn before my monk is
perfected. Currently, I call him Brother Aloysuis O' Banyon.
However, I am reasonably certain that a FRansiscan Brother would drop
his birth surname in favor of a church related surname. I will
pursue that as time permits.
It was good to hear from you,
We will chat more later,
Lord Rob Haddock
- Hello Lidia,
I am relatively new to the SCA and I love the Tudor time period as well. I'm from the East Kingdom my SCA name is Anna Tailor. I'm very serious about using period materials and patterns and I would love to chat about garb and everything else Tudor. I have 2 small children whom I absolutely love to dress up in middle class Tudor garb however, I haven't gotten around to making much nice things for myself. I've made some Italian Ren garb (because I was pregnant and the underbust cut works well with an ever expanding belly. But now that I am done having children for a least a little while I would like to get into to garb that I joined the SCA for!

I make cheese, keep sheep and goats and pursue a number of textile arts in that world and in the present day. I am looking forward to sharing thoughts with other like minded medievalists. I find historical research to be endlessly seductive. I am so glad to know that there is a group like this one!
