June 1st, 2023 If you are working on a new charter design for the Kingdom, please be sure to read the “How to Design a Charter” section of this website and watch the recent informational session recording during May’s monthly Ansteorran Virtual Scribal Table: Designing a Charter.

Are you interested in designing a new charter for the Kingdom? Please fill out the New Charter Interest Survey Form!

January 24th, 2023 Going into effect today, we have a new, more specific policy, regarding guidelines for the carrying and delivery of Original scrolls from artisans to the Kingdom (Champion Scrolls, new Peerage scrolls and the like being handed out in Court that need signatures of the Crown) to be sure that Originals arrive safely in the hands of the Sable Scroll (the royal scribe) and do not get lost or misplaced in transit.

This policy is going into effect at the behest and determination of the Star Principal Herald and Star Signet, out of recent evidence of its necessity. We want to make sure that all of the effort put into everyone’s work is never for naught, as no original scrolls should ever be lost. Artists do not want this, and no one carrying or receiving the scroll wants this either.

We have done our best to keep the policy as simple as possible for implementation purposes.

Please see the Original Scroll Delivery Policy here.





As of May 1, 2022 it is SCA Anno Societatis 56 (A.S. LVII).

Welcome to the College of Scribes website! You can also contact Ansteorran scribes on our Facebook!

The Charter Library is under “Charters and Scrolls”. This section also includes design information for scrolls.

Under the guidance of the Star Signet, the College of Scribes of Ansteorra has many purposes:

  • To provide original scrolls and charter awards for the Crown of Ansteorra
  • To encourage and recruit new scribes in the scribal arts.
  • To provide opportunities for instruction of the scribal arts to include calligraphy, illumination, limning, charter painting and other related paper and scribal arts.
  • To provide award insignia for the Crown of Ansteorra
  • To educate the populace on the creation and preparation of award insignia.
  • To assist the populace of Ansteorra who wish to commission original scrolls.
  • To provide opportunities for scribal display and competition at Ansteorran events.

New charters are in the making. If you are interested in creating a new Kingdom Charter, let’s talk!
