Rosmerta?

Salvete Omnes! S.V.B.E.V
Can anyone provide information on a Goddess named Rosmerta or Rosamerta? It is said she was originally Celtic, but was adopted by some Romans.

Salvete Piscine et omnes!
I don't know if this is applicable, but has anyone noticed how similiar the vocabulary is between these prayers to Jupiter and Catholic prayers to God? Almighty, Father... Interesting.

SALVETE OMNES. SI VALENT, BENE EST, VALEO. Gn., multos gratias. Anyone know how I would go about using this phrase: ad Calendas Graecas ? Lit, 'at the Greek Kalends.', i.e. never... How would I say: "I will vote Republican at the Greek Kalends." POPULARIS AD CALENDAS GRAECAS CENSEBO, per...

Fear of Celts

Salvete Omnes!
Does anyone know of, or have any Latin inscriptions that would demonstrate a fear of the Celts?
"Lord Iupiter, save us from the Gauls..." Something like that?

Livius describes this as a nationalist revolt but some claim that it was actually a rise of the sub-top composed mainly of Etrusco-Romans who didn't put up with the tyranny of the Tarquinii anymore and wanted to install an oligarchy (which they did). Wow! This sounds like what Karl Marx, perhaps I...

Salvete! S.V.B.E.V. I would be very interested to get Piscinus' take on this. I'm not sure if the Senate was in existence or not. Livy tells us that Romulus instituted the "patres" (fathers), which I guess would be the 'predecessor' to the Senate? And I found this on the web: 509 B.C. Tarquin...

Etruscans In and Out

Salvete omnes! I am interested in two transitions in the history of Rome. The first when the Etruscan kings took over. The second when they were 'kicked-out.' What was the transition like to Etruscan rule? What happened to the Senate during this period? Was it abolished? Made secondary, like ...

From what I read (somewhere), Nero's last words were "What a great artist the world is loosing."
I think megalomania is a mental disorder. It does contain the 'mania' root word. That's why I think he was mad.

Whenever I think of the Romans as Liberators, it sounds to me as if they saved people from tirants or something like that. You got it! I was also thinking of liberation from ignorance. Such as in the furthering of science. But I don't want to say too much. I would much rather let others guide thi...

The Ancient Romans were Liberators!

Sorry about the deceptive title. But I really want to get everyone's input on this. Can a case be made for the ancient Romans as liberators? Perhaps not through the political sense, but in cultural, linguistic, scientific terms? Can it be said that the legacy of the ancient Romans has been more go...

Roman opinions of Greeks

Salvete omnes! S.V.B.E.V. I just finished Pliny's Natural History. What a wealth of information. Some of the most interesting parts I thought were Pliny's opinion of the Greeks: "...we are swept along by the empty words of Greek intellectuals." "They are a worthless and intractable lot." ".....

God Names Project

Salvete! I want to start a collection of God names declined in Latin. I believe this could aid in reconstruction, especially for those of us who are not experts in the Language. Here's the problems I can think of: 1) Some of these names are irregular, and from the Greek. 2) The Vocative Declensi...

For me, being an Italian American, its an exploration of where I came from. Most African Americans have a very hard time exploring their family trees earlier than slavery. Irish Americans have just as hard a time tracing their roots earlier than the Famine. (As the British used genealogical documen...

Salvete omnes, s.v.b.e.v.

At times, I think Jr. is punishing us for not reelecting Sr.
Sometimes, I think its because of their skull & bones membership.
Other times, I think he's just doing Israel's dirty work.
Most of the time, I'm just afraid for the rest of the world.
Watch out.
