Good advice amici, which I attempt to practice. However, I feel that Nova Roma will forever limit itself to a infinitesimally small cult by following the path they are on. Recent activity on the NR Main List only reinforces that feeling as there seems to be a tide in favor of making the Religio Roma...

I am a "tax"-paying and voting citizen of Nova Roma for a while now. I rarely post to any of the lists but keep up with the summaries daily. I joined NR originally because I have historical interests about ancient Rome and was looking primarily for a place with lots of good, detailed in...

Re: Oh, all right...<g>

It'd be hard to refine these much further without knowing the rules for the game. Thanks much for the suggestions. I hope to include a fictional game of harpustum in a story I'm working on so I have to invent the rules. Whereas people are always people, given what little we DO know about the gam...

Re: Sports Terms

Salve, Gaii Cornelii - Perhaps there exist proper terms, but my thoughts are these: Center => Medius ? Ranker [someone ranking the players?] => Iudex [vel] Aestimator ? Scout [someone on the lookout for new players?] => Investigator ? Wing => Ala ? Archer => Sagg...

Translation Help

REPOST from the Collegium Linguarum where I didn't get any responses. Any help would be appreciated! Would like some help translating the following terms into Latin. The context is that these terms would be applied to positions on a sports team and also, if different, to the individual players pl...

Simple translation help

Salvete omnes! Would like some help translating the following terms into Latin. The context is that these terms would be applied to positions on a sports team and also, if different, to the individual players playing those positions. For example "Marius was playing 'wing'" as one might ...

Re: Scare-proof

We've always heard "Christians" and "Romans" in the media presented as if they were two opposing sides of something. Frequently forgotten on both the Christian and the "pagan" ends of the debate are that very many of the early Christians were Roman citizens, includi...

Re: Us Iron-Handed Oppressors

Rebellion, otoh, was dealt with swiftly, severely, and thoroughly. It took a lot to set us off, but once they had, we made sure it was a terrifying experience that no one would be eager to repeat. Slap 'em hard the first time and there won't be a second; a harsh policy by today's standards, but ...

Re: Romanitas Rising, Eh?

And I find that everyone mentions, whether with reservations or not, the Roman series of Colleen McCullough. I guess I will have to put that on my reading list. Is there one or another novel in particular that you would recomment? Having studied much history since I first read the series 10-1...

Re: Salve, Gaii Cornelii -

For interest's sake, can I pose you a question? How did you first come to your Roman identity? Childhood? School studies? Divine visitation? :lol: How do you feel that you became, in your own self, a Civis? But if that's too forward and abrupt, I'll withdraw the question! My first exposu...

Gaius Cornelius Rufus Salvete Omnes Hello everyone! I have just joined this group and hope to find others interested in Roman history and culture as I am. To be frank, I am a current assidui ("tax-paying citizen") of Nova Roma and I've had up to HERE (:roll:) with the stupid bickering c...
