Salve Aule Flavi However if I'm reading your second post right, no ontological argument can ever be formed to prove beyond doubt the existence of the Gods. Since these arguments can be set up to rationally argue themselves to a logical conclusion, this ultimate conclusion is deemed to be 'God'. ...

Salve She is to be found in the Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Napoli. The photos look as though taken from a book on the museum's collection. Just because the photos are B&W would not mean the source is old and the museum would still hold rights on any images. So it would be best to writ...

Salvete Ericius mentioned Dea Disciplina. She appears only in Britannia. She appears in only six inscriptions, out of 3611 inscriptions, half of which are found at Corbridge. And there really is not that much to them, as the examples below show. AE 1960, 201b, Bertha, Britannia Discipulinae...

Salvete omnes In the feriale Duranum, during Lemuria (9 and/or 11 May) and again at pridie Kal Junonae (31 May), the legiones held a festival specific to the military. This was the Rosalia, during which the standards were gathered together from the sacullum in the aedes in the center of a camp,...

Salvete Continuing with some that Ericius mentioned... First, by far, came Jupiter Optimus Maximus. He is most often found alone. Secondly, in conjunction with the Genius Loci of a camp. Thirdly with Juno Regina, or as part of the Capitoline triad. Here is one inscription that names seve...

Salve Aule Flavi Where shall we begin on the subject of whether the Gods exist? The subject requires some idea on what is meant by Gods since Their nature is often assumed in the proofs offered. Let us first consider the ontological proof as this generally involves defining God. The Stoic ...

Salve mi Mari, teque bona Iuppiter auctet ope. I have about four more weeks of dealing with the VA. Hail, tornadoes, and floods have been another recent preoccupation; my house repairs are nearly complete now. I should be able therefore to visit more frequently. Usque conabor. Still much wo...

Re: Ad nomina...

Salve Valeri Were our founders Dionysian of a single gens by mutual intent, I wonder? Perhaps one of the august Dionysian Dracones can enlighten us, the latecomers. They were members of gens Apollonia in Nova Roma. They and other Apollonii found SVR. They formed gens Dionysia in SVR, toge...

Salve mi Draco The fact that you took notice and thought some significance in their flight would indicate that the birds provided an omen. An auspicium is different however in that it is a special ritual where in a templum would have to be marked out in a special way, with appropriate sacrific...

Re: A Larger Ekumenism?

Salve bene mi Iohanes Can there be a Universalism or Ekumenism Short answer, contrary to our Valerius Scerio, is yes. For any who hold faith in the spiritual there can only be one ultimate, universal, mystical, sublime, spiritual reality, no matter how we may arrive there along the path of ou...
