Salve draco I want to make it clear that I'm not blaming either of you for SVR's problems, or that I think you are even part of SVR's problems. When fulfilling a duty, you have both not let down the Societas and did very well. When not in office, you stick around and read or post. I'm fine with ...

Salve Cleopatra I have to check, but i think that is the case that Serapis is composed of the Apis bull and elements of the Osiris cult. He was created by the Hellenic pharaoh Ptolemy 1 and made him the official god of Egypt at the time. The reason for creating this deity was to create a common r...

Salve Draco I think that SVR may suffer from the very same. Each year we amend or rewrite the Regulae, but our problems (very slow influx of new members, not enough people that really do or organise things, people that leave or go inactive inexplicably) continue to be the same. Perhaps what we n...

Salve Draco I hope too that you will reconsider about your retirement. SVR needs you, as all of us. I admit I haven't been very active lately either, but that was for personal reasons. Anyway, what you said is somewhat true. Concerning the reforms of SVR, I will talk about it in the appropiate ...

Canaanite pagan interview

Salvete On the yahoo! group of Canaanite paganism, a link was posted where a member of the group was interviewed about her beliefs. I thought it might be of interest to the people here to hear it from a Jewish pagan talking about their beliefs. http://www.newvoices.org/cgi-bin/arti...

maybe its best to postpone the deadline for another week. I'm still working on my Herakles essay where I have to add new information that I have found in Carl Kereny book "Heroes of the Greeks". Can you imagine, I actually found a Dutch translation of this book?

Salve Garrule I'm sure Piscine can add information on Vesta, but this is what I have come up with so far. Vesta and Hestia are deities of whom we have little information (especially Hestia). We do know that they both played a pivotal role in both private and state religion. They were the centre o...

I remember that i saw a list of EU countries that were religious intolerant and Greece, I thought was in the top 5 of that list. But I thought that the situation was improving with the EU meddling with the whole situation and forcing Greece to take action against the intolerance.

Als iemand zich geroepen voelt, om deze verhalen van Herakles te vertalen naar het Engels, laat mij dan weten. De vertaling die ik gemaakt heb van het verhaal, trok op niet veel.
