Salvete Such tubes have been discoved with other Roman tombs as well. Libations of wine or milk, and food could be passed through these. One was expected to visit the tombs of his or her ancestors to share a meal at least once a year. Arrangements for more frequent visits were made, where cert...

The Roman Rustic Calendar

Salvete Sodales Before Rome adopted its civil calendar of 304 BCE that was based upon the religious lunar calendar kept by the Pontifices, Romans relied on a sidereal calendar. Unlike the later civil calendar that began in March, the civil calendar of the Early Republic began in September with t...

Philosophy links

Salvete Sodales Our webpages are going through updates, thanks to Marius. The links found for the various collegia were uploaded five years ago. Browsing through for links related to Classical philosophy, I found ours no longer exist. So I will ask our Sodales to offer their suggestions on new...

Salve Quinte Orce Do you use the Orphic or the Homeric hymns in your devotions or not? Those are Greek. I've read them but I don't do anything Greek in my devotions. I think that there is a noticeable difference in how the Greeks addressed their Gods and the Romans do ours. I don't like...

Re: Italian Province

Salve What do you think? Should we allow such affinity provinces? How many sodales would be interested in joining an Italian province? Me, I'd be interested. Having a "provincia" board where Italian would be the primary language, or one for German or any other language, might be a go...

Salve Aeneas

Well they are Greek so I doubt that you will find them in Latin today. However, Marsilio Ficino translated them into Latin, back in the 15th century. So maybe if you looked for works by him you could find what you're looking for.
