The real problem we had with rectores in the past is that we still have never clearly stated what we expect from our rectores. Under the proposed Regulae rectores can be appointed, and the curatores can give very specific instructions as to what role they wish a rector to perform in a collegium. ...

To answer your question, could you just explain where the difference between a curator and rector would be? In the current system, we have magistrates running S.V.R.'s organization and rectores presiding the collegia, both with a rather strictly defined 'jurisdiction'. My proposal is to merge t...

Salve Attice, Another question, one we've talked about already: how does one calculate the amount of people in the Roman Empire? I guess Roman citizenship was pretty well documented at the time, but how about slaves, mercenaries, merchants or illegal immigrants? Also, I would think many of the rev...

Salvete omnes, Any other reactions on this topic ? What do we want to do with the collegia / rectores ? Should the rectores be curatores or the curatores rectores (as is my suggestion, vide supra )? Are their any other points in Horatius' draft for new regulae that need to be discussed or cl...

Salvete, I've voted for Messalina as well. Clodia was more of cultured 'salon courtesan' (whereas I wonder if Ms. Hilton has read any book in the last few years), Agrippina was cruel and ambitious rather than hedonistic and superficial, and Cleopatra too used her looks for politics more than sho...

Attice, Thank you for your scholarly and enlightening response. To tell the truth, I was merely trying to stir up some controversy and lively posting with my reply to Draco. I guess I should have expected something as well thought out as your missive from the SVR membership. I maintain, however...

Any more candidates? I plan to set up a poll in which we can vote for the woman who was most likely reincarnated as Paris Hilton. Once the results are in, I will take it upon myself to inform Miss Hilton, or at least her fans, through a posting at the relevant web site. "Paris Hilton Sex Video" ...

Cut the political correctness already! The ancients were not shy of describing disreputable male behavior. Yet you want to accept the historical fact of Julius Caesar's or Alexander's prolifigate behavior but say that Messalina wasn't a slut because history was written by macho men. Sheesh! Tal...

Salve Tergeste,

This essay by the English philosopher Roger Scruton might interest you. It is provokingly titled "Bring back stigma".

Salve Tergeste, Clodia (Catullus' 'Lesbia') or Claudius' wife Messalina immediately come to my mind. As a widow, Clodia became known as a merry one. Around 60 BC, her favourite lover was the poet Gaius Valerius Catullus. Madly in love with her, Catullus wrote several poems about his feelings ...

I know that this might not be the topic to discuss this in, but if we're talking about SVR's history and some written record of it... I'd like to volunteer for that. Mus started an annales project some 2,5 years ago but it never got much further than SVR's foundation (which he was appropriately nag...

By the way, Mari, I like the idea of the Curatores being the Rectores. The body of all the Rectores could be a ruling Concilium for the Societas as a whole, subject to the limitations that sodales could recall their Rectores, etc. This implies that we go back to the system that sodales sign up on...

Salvete, I agree with you, Horati, that S.V.R. has not proven capable of sustaining the collegia-system we envisaged at our founding, with 5-10 qualified rectores teaching, organising projects, posting information etc. (in fact, we put a rather serious 'burden' on them, more effort than most peop...

Salvete Attice et omnes It is only a draft. It does not mention the collegia as many of us posed should be central to our structure. But then while writing this draft, I did not see where the collegia did fit into our structure. Perhaps the collegia do not need to fit in anywhere in the re...

Excellent work, mi Horati ! I see few things to be added or amended to this set of rules. It is brief, elegant and flexible, and it takes into consideration the suggestions and concerns that have been voiced by the members of this concilium. One simple question though. Who determines how much...

As we do not (and, i.m.o., should not) control who's joining our forum, I suggest that we count as a sodalis someone who subscribes to the fora and asks to counted among the sodales, by submitting an application form. We should clearly communicate on our website and forum the difference between a 'g...

Surely, the Comitia should be able to override decisions of the curatores, recall them, or suggest measures to be voted. But I do think we need a small group of people who can handle daily business in a flexible way; I would call them 'functionaries' rather than 'magistrates', to point out the d...
