Re: Living Roman Polytheism in Practice

Salve Amicus It sounds like a great idea. But when would you celebrate the Dei with no month? I feel the call to return to the Dei Romanorum after a fling with Babylonian Ilu. They're interesting, and I do have somewhat of a connection with Sapshu/Shamash who may be known as Helios in Greek. At...

Re: A Larger Ekumenism?

I'm not sure I know exactly what you mean by ekumenism, but if it means that all religions should be blended into incoherent mush (which I think would look fairly New Age IMO), absolutely not. To me a big part of the beauty of Paganisms is that we DON'T agree. Norse say the world was created by a ...

Re: The Message

The religio has several messages. 1.) There are many Gods, and they should all be honored as They wish to be. 2.) The Gods deal with you in THIS world, not in some eternal torment beyond the grave. 3.) The Gods favour those who honor Them. 4.) One should face life with courage, honesty, integr...

Re: Why paganism?

Language is to communicate. I may periphrase along various lines but I try to use the best words fro the situation at hand. I sue the word Pagan at times. Or Roman Pagan to be more specific. I say my relgion is Religio Romana. I am what I am and my Deities know it too. In some ways "Pa...

Re: Why paganism?

I call myself a classical polytheist and that usually gets the message across. The fact that "pagan" may have been used as a slur by Christians doesn't bother me. What bothers me is that "pagan" in the modern era is a shorthand for a wide array of modern mystical and occ...

Re: If you could bring something back, what would it be?

I'd bring back quite a few things. Religious tolerance. The idea that you've cornered the market on Heaven is the cause of so much trouble. If Allah and Jehovah were gods among many the followers could not fight each other. At least not about whose god is superior. The ideal of a Philosopher ...

Re: different traditions

Salve Omnes I practice the Roman Religion, though more in a revivalist sense than a strict recon. I think the difference is that I tend to fill in the gaps by observing modern paganisms and then using that and my knowledge of the historical practices to come up with a practice that works and honor...
