Welcome aboard.
I'm 30, from PA, and never had the chance to study Latin. But I'm trying.
Good luck with your studies.

I thought it was commonly known, that the owl is a symbol of wisdom. Minerva herself is godess of wisdom, so it would be logical that she hads an owl as symbol? Salvete omnes, and multas gratias Tiberius. See that's what I always thought. What I am looking for is an example of iconography, on a co...

Minerva and the owl?

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

Does anybody know if the owl was a symbol of Minerva?
I haven't found a reference to the owl and Minerva yet.
Now does this have something to do with the Roman's fear of the strix?
Or are my research skills that lacking?

request: clarification of 'curia'

SALVETE OMNES, S.V.B.E.V. I'm reading T.J. Cornell's The Beginnings of Rome and I'm having trouble understanding the curia mentioned on p116: Each curia had a leader with the title curio , who had to be over 50 years of age and held office for life. One of these leaders was chosen as head of...

MVLTAS GRATIAS, PISCINE!

I was under the mistaken impression that the Dei Praecipui indicated some sort of abandoning of other Roman Gods.

Many thanks,

2 questions of Varro's Dei Praecipui

SALVETE OMNES, S.V.B.E.V.
Excuse my ignorance here...
Do Varro's Dei Praecipui predate the Di Consentes?
Do the Dei Praecipui represent a move toward monotheism? Or hellenization? Or something else?

Was Apuleius a monotheist?

Was Apuleius, author of Metamorphosis a monotheist or polytheist?

Is this true?

SALVETE OMNES, S.V.B.E.V.
Someone e-mailed me this:
30 B.C.: Roman poet Horace in his Epodes of Horace associated Witches with the goddess Diana in a mystery cult.
Is this true? Horace was a poet right? This shouldn't be taken as evidence of witchcraft in Classical Rome, correct?

I think I'm going to read one after the other. Starting with Cornell.

There continued active communities for centuries afterward, well into the 13th century in some places, and some would claim they were never completely extinguished. SALVETE OMNES!

survivals of the mystery cults

SALVETE OMNES, S.V.B.E.V. Does anyone know if the "mystery cults" continued into the late Empire? By mystery cults I mean Mithra, Cybele, Isis, etc. I'm not so much interested in their origins as I am in the possibility that they may have continued into the late Empire. MULTOS GRATIAS ET VALETE ...

Salve Marce.
Rest assured there's no confusion of that type here. (More like disproving C.G. Leland.)
I'm off to search for the works Georgic I, De Rustica and Fasti, and will consult some Hellenismos on Phosphoros.

The extent of Lucifer

Salvete omnes! S.V.B.E.V. I was reading on this site how Venus, and almost all of her mythos, was brought to Italy in 217 BCE. Now, Pliny the Elder, says that Venus arising before the dawn is called Lucifer. To me, this seems no more than an astrological term. Right? Question 1) Was Lucifer just ...
