Re: 2,000 years

It seems as though Nov. 17 is the most agreed upon date. Kindle is known for typos and errors, probably from scanning. The 19th might have beena typo on Pisci's part in the version of his calendar I use most often (I like the format). In two other format version of his calendar Piscinus has the 1...

2,000 years

Salvete omnes! Second favorite emperor Vespasian is having his 2,000 birth anniversary coming up. The Piscinian calendar has it as this Thursday, Nov. 19. The Suetonius edition on my Kindle has the birthday as Nov. 27. Either way it is a big day for the big man who gave his name to public toile...

Openly Heathen Elected Councilman in New York City

He is Norse Heathen, Theodist. And he is a REPUBLICAN. (I still get an evil chuckle out of that.) Here is one article about him, with some other links. from "The Wild Hunt" online Heathen magazine: In a final note, it seems that monotheistic faiths don’t like their forms of animal sacr...

Re: Decline and Fall Theory

After much reading and study, and not a few brainstorming sessions with people, I was watching a lecture on the history of Rome and while going through the various "causes" of the fall of the Roman Empire in the west I realized what was a viable simple answer to the question, "Why did...

Re: Why paganism?

also ... While my Italian family did and do refer to themselves as Paisani on their mountainside in Toscania, a thing about the Roman religion is that it was Urban, not Pagan. On the few occaisions I have to speak with people who know what I'm talking about, I reply to the question, "Are you ...

Re: Why paganism?

Language is to communicate. I may periphrase along various lines but I try to use the best words fro the situation at hand. I sue the word Pagan at times. Or Roman Pagan to be more specific. I say my relgion is Religio Romana. I am what I am and my Deities know it too. In some ways "Pag...

Re: Resignation.

verrry interesting. I'm sort of glad that I don't come by much... but my evil curioustiy may prompt me to ask for the dirt off line. I remember somethings of the beginning of SVR.

Re: Roman symbol

I've been wearing a triskelion pendant for many years now, though few recognise it as a religious symbol, it is also the symbolof Sicilia and the Isle of Man. I have thought on this question for some time now and it comes to just about all that has been mentioned in the other replies to this thre...

Japan vs. West [Re: Did Rome have her own Roman Martial Art?

Salvete Years ago I saw a match between SCA champion (Duke Paul Bellatrix, ca. 1978) and a Japanese gentleman. The Japanese was the uncle of one of the SCA ladies, visiting her from the old country. He watched with some amusement and allittle scorn at the kights fighting. It wasn't the armor, a...

Jodiae Re: I'd march to this

Ave Praefectue Castrorum,
Have I missed where your Roman Jodie calls got posted? Quite possible since I just found out the SVR site had moved.
Also, that "Roman Wall Blues" poem fits the classic Jodie call perfectly.

Roma iterum

I started Rome over again last night. (partly in reaction to "the real world".) I have problems with some of the things in the series, but it is "hollywood", not university. In one of the commentaries that are in the second series volume one of the makers of the showmade an v...

Roman paperwork

Salve. First, my apologies for this being more of a tease than a help. Basically you have one of the easiest sources. The Vindolanda tablets are easier for me to check out in one of the books that have been published. They have very useful indeces. That gives you some idea of content. Fo...

Sagitarrium

More hierarchies. Reminds me of that short lived NR-ite "Maximus Ultimus Superbus".

Caesar was simply Caesar. He made it a grate name and lasting title.
