I can't find any sources that involve a ritual similar to the one described in the book. The only rituals or invocations involving birth of any type I can find are a reference in Plautus and others that a mother in labor would invoke Juno Lucina to help her deliver the baby. Also as noted by...

Mi Tergeste, Thank you and I am glad you enjoyed the article. You have posed some excellent questions. I've had to do further research but I believe I can answer them. Tell me, under what legal basis were citizens married to non-citizens (whether Latins or foreigners?) A citizen could ma...

The Rights of Citizens and Non-Citizens in the Roman World

Salvete Omnes! I would like to present to all of you my first article submission to the Societas. The topic I have chosen is one which I often wondered about: What distinguished Roman citizens from holders of latin rights and outright foreigners? If this topic interests you, please read o...

Lingva Latina per se illvstrata, by Hans H. Ørberg

Salvete Omnes! As I am trying to improve my conversational latin, I came across the following latin course. Granted, I do not think it focuses on conversational latin, but it looks outstanding none the same. Lingva Latina per se illvstrata , by Hans H. Ørberg is a latin course written entire...

Wiki Concept Proposal for the SVR

Salve Omnes! As mentioned in the "Relocating to a new home" thread, Marius and I have been working on an experimental model wiki for the SVR. I have created a wiki called "Ancient Ways" <wink, wink, nod, nod> on a free wiki hosting site called editthis.info (link below)...

Salve Mi Prisce! That indeed is an impressive find. This is a great learning resource. When I was in the Urbs Aeterna in 2003 I literally stared at the column for hours. So much history in one opus! I remember being frustrated that I couldn't see the work at the top so I bought a lower powe...

Mari et Omnes- With your statement: I have a better idea. Since an Aedile's work is so different from any other Magistrate's, I think the office of Aedilis should stand outside the Cursus Honorum. I concur fully!!! Upon deeper reflection (and historical consultation* - for that is at the r...

Mi Venerabilis Mari et Omnes- I would like to follow up on your poignant comments regarding the Senate and Cursus Honorum ideas I proposed. On the Senate: I differ with magister Nonius in my belief that, as the Senate would be an advisory body, it should not contain serving Magistrates. ...

Property Qualifications for the Republican Senate

Salvete Omnes! While seeking a theme for an article or essay to contribute to this collegium (my first) I came upon through a series of twists and turns a question for which I cannot find an answer and would like to see if you, the august participants of this forum, might have one. The question ...

Salvete! I realize that I am quite a sodalis novus in the societas, but I hope you will hear my words as though I am speaking beyond my years... Since I joined the SVR but a few short weeks ago I have put much thought and study into this rogatio and the related discussion threads that preced...

Ancient Roman road found in Netherlands

Salve Omnes! Please find below a link to an AP news story on the discovery of another section of the "Limes" road in the Netherlands. I have yet to visit any archaeological sites outside the eternal city herself yet so I am always fascinated when new sites are discovered (even if by ...

Mi Mari et Scerio- Gratias vobis ago for your replies! Mari- As you stated: I think the emphasis on reading over speaking, or even over composition, is a feature of Latin courses in general--formal, self-study or otherwise. I thought this much was the case, I am quite eager to purs...

Review of the Oxford Latin Course Book Series

Salvete Omnes! As I have had some free time during Saturnalia this year, I remarked that is was exactly five years ago that I started to self study latin. My wife gave me The Oxford Lattin Course book series as a gift after hearing me say that I wanted to learn Latin. I searched the fora and ...

Quinte- Interesting question. I'm glad you asked because it gives me a chance to do some research. Work is so boring lately! The short answer is it is quite possible they are referring to a Roman General Salvius Julianus who was executed by Commodus for supposedly plotting against him. In orde...
