Commodus

Salvete I was watching the extended special edition of Gladiator with more than 10 minutes of new material and alot of extras in it. It was a really good movie, but I have a question. In one of the extras on the dvd's, one of the writers said that around the time Commodus came to power, a Roman ...

Salve Mari I found it strange that no author was mentioned for that work. I did get the feeling the author knew somehow what he was talking about, but probably got the gist of it as you said it. Well it wouldn't be the first time Egyptian religion was credited with influencing another religion....

Salve Gnae Armini I don't call myself a pagan either, although at times I do call myself a Hellenic pagan, but general speaking, I use the term Hellenic polytheist to distinguish myself from the other polytheists and from Wicca. Even in Hellenic polytheistic circles, the usage of the term &quo...

Salve There is a difference between not wanting kids for medical reasons and not been able to become pregnant because being infertile. For the last 4 millenia, humans were able to have babies in a world that was hostile. Do you think they thought like that they couldn't afford kids, so they cho...

Salvete I think that this decline has already started in the second century AD. I read somewhere (can't remember where) that although enough babies were born, there was a percentage that was abandoned in the hills. -- While the Roman birthrate did fall off, lead could not be shown to be the (o...

Salve If this was true, it would be different from almost every other case in history. It is usually the rich, upper-class women who have the most restricted lives, because they are all about "appearances". Think, for example, of the way aristocratic women are portrayed in England of ...

Religion in Ancient Etruria by Jean-Rene Jannot
