Salve bene Aule Flavi We're a little backlogged at the moment. Readjusting to some things. Hm... Thankyou of course Marcus. It's always a pleasure to hear from our residential Numa :) (aside) He don't know me too well, do he? Well, it is an interesting subject and not one usually c...

Salve Aule Flavi Would I be correct to assume that you have come upon the religio Romana from a Christian background? There is a passage in their texts where Jesus supposedly said, "But first change your mind." That is probably true for all relgious faiths. Being raised in any religious faith,...

Salvete gentiles Romani Now that we have some idea on the setting, we can look a little at the ritual of taking the auspices. As in all formalRoman ritual, in practice it works into a dialogue among the participants. At the start of any Roman ritual the main celebrant (praeses or praetor/praetr...

Salvete cultores Deorum et Sodales omnes Now that we have some idea of what is needed for a templum augurale we can beging to move into the ritual of an auspicium, or auspicandi ritus. We'll take this in steps in order to consider a few details. The auspicandi ritus itself can be said to break do...

Salvete cultores Deorum et Sodales omnes To continue this discussion here in SVR, a few posts that I made at other sites. This first one is on how to begin establishing the templum augurale, or auguraculum. "Among our ancestors, no affair was undertaken, either in public or private, before ta...

Salve bene Aule Flavi "Love mankind. Follow the Gods...and it is enough to remember that the Law (of Nature) rules all." The emperor Marcus Aurelius tells us something of his own journeys within the religio Romana. He does not speak to us about a state religion. Rather his faith is spirit...

Salve Marce Silvane

Welcome to SVR.

We just had our first major glich in our five year history - the boards and website was shut down for a few days. So we are regrouping at the moment.

So the religio Romana? And what other interests might you have to share with us?

Salvete Discussion at Academia Thules has now begun to consider what a relationship with SVR might mean for them. These are some of the ideas being tossed around from their perspective. - Teachers drawn from S.V.R. [Teaching positions were already opened to SVR sodales in 2004. The Latin...

Salvete Wow, I'm surprised you guys actually had one at all. I'm glad I missed out on all the mess, and survived the latest coup. In the early years there was a problem, not so much between SVR and NR but with a group of individuals inside NR that was hostile towards SVR. For one thing they...

Salvete sodales I should explain some things about association with the Academia Thules. The Academia Thules is an independent group. It was founded by members of Nova Roma and thus it has had a relationship with Nova Roma for some time. However it wishes to better establish that it is an indep...

Salve Well, no I do not find it arbitrary at all. The old calendar followed the seasons as signalled by the stars, which was needed back then when people still worked with Nature. We are a more urban society today, one that has disconnected people from Nature, and so I find that making an effor...

Salve Scerio Well tradition had the Founding on 21 April, but it wasn't really by the Julian calendar any more than by the Gregorian. The Roman civil calendar, prior to Julius Caesar, was a sidereal calendar. That would have been the civil calendar introduced in 304 BCE. Varro's rustic calenda...

Salve Quinte Scerio "Eleven days before the kalends" because the Romans counted inclusively - 21 April and 1 May, and all the days in between. About two weeks away from the Gregorian 21 April as the Julian date is presently 13 days behind the Gregorian date, or fourteen days if you wish to count...
