In medieval Latin a florilegium plural florilegia was a compilation of excerpts from other writings. The word is from the Latin flos flower and legere to gather: Medieval florilegia were systematic collections of extracts taken mainly from the writings of the Church Fathers from early Christian authors, also pagan philosophers such as Aristotlemusocum sometimes classical writings.
A prime example is the Manipulus florum of Thomas of Irelandwhich was completed at the beginning of the fourteenth century. Flotilegium purpose was to take passages that illustrated certain topics, doctrines or themes.
After the medieval period, the term was extended to apply to any miscellany or compilation of literary or scientific character. The term florilegia also applied literally to a treatise on flowers or medieval books that are dedicated to ornamental rather than the medicinal or utilitarian plants covered by herbals.
As florileigum techniques advanced, and new plants came to Europe from Ottoman Turkey in the 16th century, wealthy individuals and botanic gardens commissioned artists to record the beauty of these exotics in Florilegia. Modern florilegia seek to record collections of plants, often now endangered, from within a particular garden or place.
