Optime! Yes, I'm going. Probably for only one day, but I'll be there.

It will probably be held at GMU's main campus in Fairfax.

Salve Cleopatra,

I am very interested in syncretism. Do you know whether the book is available in English translation? MTGA.

I'm about to leave for my trip now, but wanted to comment that I'm excited by these proposals and look forward to exploring them!

Equestrian Rank

Salvete Omnes, It is my high pleasure to announce that Aldus Marius has been raised to the Equestrian Rank by unanimous consent of the Curia. This honor is in recognition of Marius' long service to the Societas and particularly his stalwart and successful work to transfer the web pages of the So...

Congratulations to our newly elected Curatores who will take up their responsibilities on the Nones of January (5 January). May I suggest that each of you consider posting a statement of your vision for the future of the Societas around that time?

I found one (original antiquity) for sale, but it reflects Punic influence and looks like it would be pricy http://www.barakatgallery.com/store/index.cfm/FuseAction/ItemDetails/UserID/0/TopMenuID/5/requesttimeout/500/ItemID/20937.htm Here are a couple of images of statues of Saturnus http:/...

In view of the fact that only two sodales have declared their candidacy for three open positions, the Curia has postponed elections for one one week. Any new candidates must now declare before 14 December 2007 when voting will begin. The polls will close on 19 December 2007.

SVR Elections 2760

I am pleased to announce that our biennial elections will take place in December 2007. Per our Regulae, we will elect at least three curatores to lead our Societas for the next two years. I say at least three because the Regulae permit the election of 3-7 curatores (described as "officers"...

Salve Marce, and welcome to SVR. There are a number of NR exiles here, some of our finest, so you'll be in good company. Let us know some more about your specific interests, literature, religion, military, gladiators? You'll find a resident expert or two for each topic. Again, welcome. ...

The Regulae permit the Curia to establish titles for any or all of the "officers" to add color to the organization or to more clearly establish responsibilities. There is no need for an amendment of the Regulae.

Piscine, I like it! A lot! Besides having Roman analogs, your proposed system would take the uncertainty out of paying for hosting and encourage those most interested in the administration of the Societas to put their money where.... My only concern is whether such a system might discourage poo...

Guys, I have to wonder to what end we would like to collect and accumulate funds. As Piscinus points out, passing the hat has worked up until now. You can count on me to continue contributions, and I'm sure others would step up as well. Why do we need a bank account or treasury? Do we need money...

Yes, I practiced Shotokan for eight years, almost every day, but only reached first kyu (ikkyu). It was a combination of tough teachers and a slow learner.
