Salve Terti, Thank you for your considered reply and especially your desire to lower the "polemic" tone of this correspondence. SVR values civic discourse. I think that some of the misunderstanding arose because of the perception that you are advocating that Aggripina be deified by ...

SVR Census

In accordance with the Regulae, the Societas Via Romana will conduct its Census beginning on 11 January 2007. A Census is necessary to determine the quora used in voting in the Comitia as well as for practical reasons such as minimizing our administrative burdens. Sodales who have not visited the S...

I also approve of the idea of legati. Since Priscus' proposal only indicated that legati be appointed by the leadership of SVR, presumably the Curatores, we need not fear a lack of volunteers to stand for election. And, as Marius points out, it would be valuable to have this office/structure avail...

Salve mi Mari et salvete omnes, I'm particularly interested in the discussion that we've been having about reform. But I've yet to see any concrete proposals ("bills") in the Comitia. I don't understand why; it doesn't take a lawyer to put together a bill. Let's see some specific la...

Welcome Maro!

I fell in love with Rome in junior high when I took my first Latin class. Were you involved in any certamina in high school?

I did a quick Google search on the practice and the only relevant hits were tied in with this particular discovery. Some of the articles did, however, mention that other foods and drinks besides honey, milk for example, could also be provided to the dead through the tubes.

Salve Mari, I very much like and support the idea of providing a public history of SVR, and I thank you for your continuing interest in putting one together. I think that the suggestion of voting on the history was based on the idea that it would represent an "official" history of th...

Salvete Mari et Sceri, Videte, I agree with you whole heartedly about the loss of a feeling of "color" (titles, honors, gentes, etc.) in the Societas under the new Regulae. I warned about this in the Concilium, and the loss of pomp has indeed been felt by many. This loss is easy to re...

Elevation to the Patrician Order

Salvete Omnes, The Curia is pleased to announce that it has voted to elevate Q Valerius Scerio to the patrician order for his voluntary and exemplary work in rationalizing the Societas website. All sodales join me in thanking him for leaving us with a smoothly running site after the considerable...

Salve Sceri, I think that we can feel more Romanitas without necessarily reinstituting the old regulae. They were repealed for good reason: there weren't (and still aren't) enough of us active members to fill all the offices. In fact, I would vote against reinstituting the old regulae. Other t...

Gosh Sceri, I know what you mean. In the discussions leading up to the adoption of the new regulae, I worried about the lose of "color" in SVR: the titles, the gentes, etc. We did lose something. Two things may give us comfort, however. One is the view taken by the curatores that just because ...
