Salve Marce! Nope, just a name and that incident. I want to write a paper on idolatry in Roman and early Christian religion and I thought that might make an interesting note. Actually, I'll take any references to idolatry you may have. My definition of idolatry, by the way, is the belief that ob...

need source: Germanicus

SALVETE OMNES, S.V.B.E.V. Has anybody ever heard of a fellow named Germanicus. All I have is a name and a story that when he died the people of Rome went into every temple and removed every statue and stepped on them to show their disapproval. Does anybody know which historian wrote about this, ...

Salvete! Not to speak ill of the dead, but hasn't Gimbusta has been debunked as a feminist who presented data to conform to her notion of the 'goddess cult'? At any rate I'm weary of genetic data as individuals of the same ethnic group show just as much genetic variation as the differences betwe...

SALVE.

I follow the Religio Romana, and try to maintain Roman virtues. But I think I might also fall under the category of a Marcionist. :? Which is an odd synthesis these days.

Salve! He goes on to try to deny any connection between the mystery religions and early Christianity but I think his objection is weak and his evidence on the mystery religions does more to demonstrate that there was a connection. Well then, I'm gonna find that book... Sounds interesting. I didn'...

Salve Brute, et multas gratias!
That's a good take on this, and helps a lot.
I've found only one reference so far to the initiation in the cult of Mithra, which stated the sacrifice of a bull was necessary. But that's all I've got on that (originally) Persian deity.

Elagabalus/Sol Invictus

SALVETE OMNES, S.V.B.E.V. Excuse my ignorance here, I'm trying to investigate non-Judeo-Christian monotheisms in the Empire. 1) Which god did the Emperor Elagabalus worship? I have read " Heliogabalus " (Does that sound right?), as well as Sol Invictus . Or were they the same god? 2) Was t...

Why did Greek survive?

SALVETE OMNES, S.V.B.E.V.

Italia, Gallia, Hispania, Lusitania, Dacia... I understand that Latin evolved into many languages in these areas, but why didn't Latin replace Greek in Greece? Or, was Latin ever spoken in Greece?

apotheosis

SALVETE OMNES! I'm trying to understand the process of apotheosis in Roman religion. As it is a Greek word, maybe the Collegium Graecum could help me... What is exactly needed for apotheosis to take place? A God/dess presents a mortal to the Gods, they accept the mortal, then the mortal becomes a ...

Salve Marce! Si vales, bene est, valeo.
I was just chatting with folks on another board about apotheosis.
Do you know if a senatorial decree is all that is needed for apotheosis in the Religio Romana?

Thanks be to You, Lucina, who are named for this sacred grove, or else because it is You, Goddess, who brings life into the light of day. I've got a Latin question about this. "who are named for this sacred grove" I guess refers to: lucus , n., grove , right? But I thought her name was a vari...

Diana the virgin

SALVETE OMNES! I've been reading some early Christian authors, and they have often used Diana as an example of a chaste woman. In fact they have used terms like "chaste," "virgin" and "untouched." 1) Is this true? Is Diana a virgin Goddess? 2) Can anyone tell me the names of any Roman authors...

SALVETE OMNES. I voted 'dead' because I have found it nearly impossible to learn the language in a classroom setting. (I just can't learn from books.) Although there is hope. Irish Gaelic for instance has gone in and out of extinction several times. What we need is for a living community of Latin ...

Salvete! I should add that 509 B.C. is a very fishy date, as it corresponds exactly with the deposition of the Peisistratid tyrants in Athens, just as the canonical year of Rome's foundation, 753 B.C is suspiciously simultaneous with the foundation of the Greek cities in the south of Italy ("Magna G...
