Salve Menci, When it comes to certain ideas about my place in the big world, I try to follow both Confucianism and Taoism. I know these schools are rivals, but I believe that, despite their differences, they can complement each other... Exactly ! As yin and yang complement each other, so th...

Salvete, Picking up an old topic again, just to add something : apart from Nero's education, we should bear in mind that he was still very young (17) when he became emperor, just like Heliogabalus, who ascended the imperial trone when he was only 15, and who became even more insane. For people of...

Salve Garrule, Scripsisti : The story is similiar to others in the Mediterranean, and that is why some people have said that it is probably not true. But it is such a great story! It is, and the 'divine twins' do indeed seem a universal topos in all mythologies of peoples with Indo-Eur...

Historical TV-programs

Salvete, I wish to start a new topic in which SVR-members can announce information about TV-programs or upcoming movies about classical antiquity they have overheard. Perhaps the aediles can turn this into a 'sticky topic' ? A first announcement then : tonight on the Dutch-Belgian National Geo...

Salvete, Picking up another earlier topic : Garullus wrote : And I found this on the web: 509 B.C. Tarquin is overthrown, Rome is rid of Etruscan rule I should add that 509 B.C. is a very fishy date, as it corresponds exactly with the deposition of the Peisistratid tyrants in Athens, ...

Roman names (restored)

Salvete omnes, Since the topic about Roman names has accidentally been deleted, I will repost Garrulus' question and my answer to it. As I remember, the crux of Lucius' question was whether we can distinguish patrician from plebeian names, and what was their origin. The answer I posted was a p...

Salvete omnes, The "Ancient World Web", a portal on classical antiquity @ http://www.julen.net/cgi-bin/links/rate.cgi?ID=2166 allows you to rate the website of our Societas Via Romana. Nice rates would perhaps help us to attract more visitors, so paying a visit might pay off. :w...

Al even hilarisch als het gebruik van "dinars" in het Romeinse Rijk 60 AD in Amazons & Gladiators. Pijnlijk... Pijnlijk, juist (hoewel nog minder straf dan het vliegtuig in Ben Hur), maar het woord 'dinar' komt volgens mij wel van 'denarius'. Kan de numismaat in ons gezelschap dat bevestig...

Salve Draco, Mijn probleem is niet dat cultuurmakers de klassieken toegankelijk proberen te maken, wel integendeel. Hoe meer mensen de schoonheid en diepmenselijkheid ervan kunnen proeven, hoe beter. Homeros hoeft ook niet noodzakelijk met een gewijde ernst benaderd te worden; zelfs binnen de ...

Hoe de klassieken te verkrachten

Salvete, Hoe men dezer dagen Homerus meent te moeten 'actualiseren' : De Kakkewieten (met onder andere Tine Embrechts, Pieter Embrechts, Adriaan Van Den Hoof, Dimitri Leue, …) nemen Odyssee van Homeros onder handen en maken er een episch muziekverhaal van. Frustration Island/De Ingebeelde Gri...

Contemporary practice of ancient philosophies ?

Salvete, A question to the members of this forum : do you believe ancient philosophies (e.g. Platonism, Stoicism, Epicureanism etc.), which were primarily 'practical' in nature, can still guide our conduct in the 21st century and if so, can we just pick them up as they are in the books or do we n...

Now, scholars are detecting more and more signs of hidden criticism in the Aeneis, dubious lines that can be read in different ways and Vergilius is regarded even more highly than before.


Interesting. Could you present us with a few examples, mi Lupe ?
