P.S. I would also eliminate paragraph seven. I see no need to make a formal distinction between active and inactive members and to toss the latter out. The active members will be obvious to anyone who cares, and kicking people out is a labor intensive exercise that can sometimes hurt feelings, s...

[Concilium] SVR : Identity, Nature, Goals, and Principia

Salvete omnes, In the discussion about a 'better SVR', held in the Comitia, a few members voiced the opinion that besides the heavy - and failing - organizational structure of SVR, there has been a deeper reason for our current crisis, namely the fact that there is no clear agreement on what SVR...

Salvete Perhaps we should first have the summaries of each topic that was going to be discussed here, posted first, than proceed to those who are willing to serve in this concilium. You can count me in. valete Quintus Salve Orce, I think there's no need to discuss the composition of the c...

It might be useful to start separate topica on each category to be discussed. In addition, it might be useful to have a general category to deal with the overarching structure of SVR, lest we get lost in details. The first posting could be a summary of each of the proposals which were posted in t...

[Concilium] Concilium : working procedures and deadlines

Salvete omnes, Tomorrow, on the 15th of August, the 'Concilium Rei Publicae Constituendae' that will reform our Societas will begin its work. The first thing we need to agree on is our internal procedures for discussion and - if necessary - voting. I think we should also fix an approximate dea...

Salvete, As four out of ten future members (Curio, Lupus, Draco and myself) of the concilium will be absent during the next two weeks, I suggest we open the discussions on monday August the 15th, when all of us will be back. As for the method of discussion, I've asked aedilis Ti. Dionysius to...

Well this isn't a bad idea with the exception of the Aedilles. We do need 2 Aedilles. We need to keep this site running and I doubt one would suffice in that matter. I do think that we need 2 consuls as well. If anyone in the near future accusses a consul for let's say malpractice, the other one ca...

I don't understand all these accusations as to people letting others down, people bringing SVR to this crisis... *what* crisis? Things are somewhat inactive... That's hardly a crisis... [...] So maybe we could do with advertising SVR a bit more. So we could do with a few more active members. ...

Salvete omnes, Here are a few ideas for a new SVR regula. I propose a radically democratic and rather minimal administration. *Cut back magistracies, but keep the basics : 1 censor, 1 consul, 1 aedilis, 2 rogatores. *Remove the senate, the praetores, the magister morum and the quaestores. ...

Perhaps we should first ask who would wish to be part of the concilium. Among the founding members, I'd be glad to join.

Renaissance humanists and Greek sophists

Salvete, Reading Jacob Burckhardt's famous "Civilisation of the Renaissance in Italy", the similarities between the description of the humanists of the 15th and 16th centuries and the sophists in the Greek world rather struck me. Here's for example a summary of the criticisms Italian humanist...
