Re: Another viewpoint

Salve Salve Orcus, First, I think I need to disagree about something you said. The Christian devil is not quite the same as the Persian one. Christian's have always spoken of the devil as a fallen angel, not as some kind of equal but opposite deity. This is because evil is really seen as a spo...

salve So far I know, the ancient Greeks accepted that there is evil in the world, mostly man-made, sometimes produced by supernatural elements like kako-daimones like the Lamiai or Medusa, etc.... A man once said that the greatest evil is done with good intentions. It's easier to blame your wro...

Salve Tiberii

Ik heb er niet echt bezwaar tegen, dat dit forum wordt verwijdert. Ik kan niet spreken voor de anderen, maar gezien er niet zoveel activeiteit was van de Belgen in SVR, heeft dit forum geen nut meer. Dus je mag het verwijderen van me.

An idea

Salvete to breathe new life in this collegium, I suggest we do something as a group where each individual picks a topic like a deity of any pantheon of the Romans, Celts, Etruscans, Mesopotamians, Hellenes, Egyptians, etc... and work around that topic for a week or a month. I got this idea from s...

well with a good script, not a mediocr one, it could be a good movie. I would prefer if Robert harris supervises the creation of that script. Than again, if this is going to be released in theaters, there is a big possibility that the studio's wil interfer and go with a less intelligent, simple, eas...

I haven't read it yet, but I do know Scarlett Johansson can act. She is just not pretty to look at, but is good at what she does as well. Orlando Bloom was great as a elf in the LOTR trilogy, but like with Leonardo Dicaprio, I have a hard time seeing him playing other roles. Leo was great in What's ...

It's been a while since I posted here and since the topic is intriging. How much I loved ancient Rome and Greece, I doubt I would have lived very long.

Avatars in Hellenismos and Religio Romana

Salvete On another list I'm on (Hellenic Pagan), someone started an interesting discussion on avatars in Greek and Roman polytheisme. For those who aren't familiar with the concept of Avatars, its from Hinduism and basicly is a diety that incarnates as a human being. Rama is an avatar of Vishnu, as...

Marius, nobody demands that you stay online 24/7. You have a life to live besides SVR, as do we all. but you do a great job at keeping the s.o.b.'s away. But like any security system, the human element is the weakest link.

Has anyone seen the new movie based on the battle of Thermopylae? Granted it's fictionalized, but it does look promising.

Salve Well I have only read Religion in ancient Etruria by Jean-Rene Jannot and it is a fairly decent book on Etruscan religion. I can recommend both books on the subject, since I heard that the other book is good as well. I'm meaning to buy the other, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. vale ...

Salve Nero A valid question. One that isn't easy to answer.

Salve Well I suppose that could be true since a girl meant that the family name stops with her unless a second child was born, who was a boy. In any way, I suppose the Romans did a similar ritual like the Greeks for every newborn child; a ritual was performed called a Amphidromia, a ritual to wel...

As it stands, and after reading Marius' post, I'm all for it. I have no other objection to the proposal. Maybe we should create a poll for this, to see how people feel about this?
