Why so happy? Do you want me to go get some pictures for you?
I can do that. Hopefully we'll have some good weather.

Yes, GMU is in the Washington DC area. But I think there are three campuses. I live in a burb of Baltimore now, but is is not too far. Maybe an hour or so.

The one I tried out for was to be set in the year 2044. Cassius was changed to a female role, who was once Brutus' lover before he married Portia. I was unhappy with some of the script cuts I saw. Yes, some dialogue can and should be cut. But the great line, "The fault dear Brutus, lies ...

Oh, that would be cool! I have never read Timon of Athens. Any good? I did see the movie version of Shakespeare's AWFUL 'Titus Andronicus' though. An interesting topic; how would you, if you were wealthy enough to produce a movie of Julius Caesar, treat the play? The trend has been to put h...

Salvete Omnes! A while back I had a similar thought to the one Iohannes is expressing. And a neighboorhood does sound nice! But OTOH, we all seem to be in places appropriate to us. Priscus on the Caelian Hill due to his interest in the historical curcumstances of his adopted family; Marius...

Julius Caesar Audition Update

It was not to be this time. Well, perhaps another day...
At least my Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays are free!

Thanks for the compliment! I chose to post a few here so people would not have to go to another site and wade through a bunch of thumbnails. Regarding the Pilate inscription, I have no reason to doubt it's authenticity. Pilate's existence was never in any serious doubt since Tacitus, Joseph...

Salve Malania, I used to believe that too, that if you did not vote, you have no right to complain. But not anymore. If I went into a restaurant and was given a choice between a plate full of excrement and a plate full of vomit, I would have the right to trow both plates away and say I dese...

Wow...that is an impressive site! I dread tho think of the work involved in typing out all those documents and assigning them a page.

If you come across any other writings which paved the way for separation of religion and government, let me know.

Mons Aventinus Brainstorm Session!

Salvete Omnes! Mons Aventinus does not seem to be getting very populated. Pity actually, because it is such a cool idea. I would like to ask all SVR members who are not on MA to please consider going there and setting up a residence. I'm very much a novice at Wiki myself, and would be a very poo...

Well, several years ago I read John Locke's "Letter Concerning Toleration", and that was something the Founders of the US were influenced by. Locke's toleration however did not extend so far as to include atheists. That is the oldest exposition that I am aware of. Lutheranism also had...

I think if monotheism itself makes people intolerant, then we are left with the questions of why the polytheists drew first blood. It was the Roman pagans who attacked first, and their attempted imposition of Caesar worship accounts for the change in attitude we find in the New Testament from such ...

Thanks Priscus, it was a great time!

Anyone else here have original pics from your travels? Maybe we can have an SVR Ancient Places page with all our own photographs.

Some pictures for you

I know...nothing can be as boring as having to sit through someone elses vacation pictures! But I have selected a few that may be of interest to the good people of SVR. The main Roman camp at Masada. General Silva's HQ was here. Sadly, we could not go into the camp itself. http://i260&...

It is great to be back! Thanks for the welcome! I don't think this theater in Caesarea was for gladiatoral events. It is one of those half-circle theaters more appropriate to plays. But Caesarwea also had a hippodrome and another theater for gladiatoral events. Not much is left of the hippodr...
