Expats from Nova Roma

Are you an expat from Nova Roma? Do you have qualms with the place? Why did you leave? What's your story? What were you looking for? Did you find it, but changed your mind? Or were you looking for something different? Please do share! I'm very eager to learn. If you feel like you cannot publicly ...

Not necessarily. You, Iohanes, actually live close to where my sister lives.

Now about to be a citizen of Nova Roma, I read up on the controversia, but the reasoning of the Senate was still incomplete - yea, the whole story was still incomplete. Do you have any intentions on working with them to finish writing what exactly happened?

Re: Modern Italians on Ancient Italia

Valerius Claudius Iohanes wrote:Salve, Valerii Scerio -

Wonderful topic; I've wondered about this a lot. Nonne habemus Italianos Sodales qui respondere possint?

Valete omnes!


Salve, Valerii,

I had thought so, sed, eheu, nemo Italiae respondit.

Salve Aelia clarissima,

By Southern Italians, you're referring to those South of Rome? Are there any "pagans" akin to the Olympian worshippers in Greece, especially around the Roman vicinity?

Re: Quaestio Inquisitioque

Valerius Claudius Iohanes wrote:And that clause -

I had:

But I should have had:

ego quoque aestimo quaestionarii questiones super Christianitatis notionem factas esse.

Nonne?


Ita vero - it's grammatical now.

I myself (ego ipse) caught myself sending PMs to varii here like Marius without translating to English portions of my message. Most here are familiar with basic Latin, and should be able to figure out what little gems you happen to leave. However, I must question the grammar of this sentence: ego...

The specifics about the Lares and Penates are still shrouded somewhat in mystery. We know several things, like their shrine was often in the entryway to the house, two figures were carved with a snake underneath. Aeneas is described in the Aeneid as carrying his household gods from his home away fro...

Accepted. I shall stay with my chosen cognomen. Either way, it's a win-win situation.

Salvete Valeri et Flavi Honos et Virtus Is that what you refer to, Quinte Valeri? Well, that's part of it perhaps, but I think there is more to the spiritual side of the religio Romana than just devotion to civil society. But, Aule, what is this "universal message" that you refer t...

As another atheist, like most educated Romans, I logically do not think that the Gods exist. This, however, doesn't mean that I can not learn from the religio - pietas is perhaps the central message of the religio Romana, and this is not merely "piety", but all manners of virtue, including...

Actually, I'm unsure if I should adopt Poplicola or Cato (both are cognomina of the gens Valeria). This is a huge life choice. Thoughts or opinions?

Nova Roma

Salvete amici,

I have joined Nova Roma under the name Quintus Valerius Poplicola, assuming a real cognomen (even though Q. Poplicola isn't attested as far as I know). Therefore I abandon the old agnomen Scerio.

Valete optime.

Modern Italians and Ancient Rome

How do modern Italians feel about ancient Rome? More specifically: 1. Of Benito Mussolini's plan to bring back the Roman empire; 2. Of modern pagans following after the ancient religion; 3. Of those who wish to restore the ancient glories such as the colosseo? 4. Of Christianity in relation to...

Concerning the comment by Horatius, I know I pressed for regularity in financial matters when I urged for the rehaul. The main difference between NR and SVR is that NR is a legal non-profit incorporation, while SVR isn't. We could sue for violations of accountability, but the legal system which we w...
