Re: Roman Cena, 17 Ian 09 (MD, US)

Salve Tiberius Dionysius Draco! After being granted probationary citizenship (I was hesitant to attend otherwise), I did go! :) Here is my summary that I posted to the newroman group: ========================================= The Location: Lohr's Family Restaurant ( http://www.lohrsonline.com/ ) A...

Re: Another New Person

Hehe it seemed to have worked. After an hour or two of my sending a message to the Censors I received notification of my probation. 8)

Re: Starting Religio Romana

I really hope, by the will of the Gods , that he gets better. I just scrolled through the introductions again and saw that he was the one who had wrote that his family considered themselves Roman, and said they were from southeast of Rome. I used to think I was the only one whose family had that tr...

Re: Another New Person

Salve Valerius Claudius,

Thank you for the encouragement and advice. >({|:-)

Snubbed on Nova Roma?

Hmm...I still haven't heard back from the Censors of Nova Roma concerning anything after having applied for citizenship. There has not even been a confirmation email or anything that let's me know that they have gotten my application and I believe it's been two weeks. Additionally, on the New Roman ...

Re: Starting Religio Romana

Salvete Marius et Valerius, Marius - What a good point! I didn't stop to think of that. :) Valerius - Yup, that's the one. And just purchased Religions of Rome now. Thank you for recommending it. Don't worry about being short in your response. As a single mom, I know all about being busy, es...

Roleplay

Salve Marius! I'm a former RPer and so would be interested in joining an RP centered around Rome. Your suggested genre of historical fantasy sounds interesting (and awesome for you for playing a werewolf!). Now, I don't know how realistic this is given my very limited knowledge on Catilina, but...

Re: Starting Religio Romana

Oooo the third image is the one that I used for my own lararium . Here's a question about it: it later occurred to me that it's a lararium for a business, so is it still okay to use even though it's in the wrong context? I ask because there is Mercurius on the far left and Bacchus on the far righ...

Re: *Your* Roman life

Salvete Omnes, If I were to put this in a realistic context, I probably wouldn't have survived infancy, let alone childhood. I was rather sickly growing up, my earliest major illness happening not long after I was born (whatever it was, it required a spinal tap). But, for the sake of pretend I ...

Romans and Birds

Salvete Omnes! I was just reading this page: http://www.religioromana.net/ritualmoments.htm and saw this segment: Birds are regarded as spirits of our ancestors and messengers from the gods. Feeding wild birds in the morning is an extension of the lararium rite. Wild seed can be blessed to the ...

Starting Religio Romana

Salvete Omnes! Does anyone have any advice on getting into the practice of Religio Romana on a day-to-day basis? I own Classical Living , and it seems to match what is said in the Correct Form of Lararium Ritual thread, but that's about in terms of resources for modern practice. Also, I know...

Re: Another New Person

Salvete Marius et Valerius! Thank you for welcoming me to the board. I am glad I can contribute to it--that there is a place for the discussion of something I love. What's more, I'm very grateful at how friendly it is and completely not intimidating! I'm very put off by internet know-it-alls ...

Re: Another New Person

Salve Valerius Claudius Iohanes and thank you for the warm welcome! I honestly don't know how well my Latin is. I can read it okay, but ask me to say or write something, or to give a grammatically correct translation is probably a different story. Last week when I was at the National Gallery of A...

Purple

Salvete Omnes! I think I must have learned this at some point, but it has completely slipped my mind and now I'm confused. Which purple in the Roman world was violet and which was Tyrian? What purple is the accurate hue for the tunic/toga stripe, the violet or the reddish one? In Ecce Romani ...

Re: Another New Person

Salve Cleopatra Aelia! No worries about talking me out of Nova Roma. If I don't pursue it, it's because of my own resignations. A lot of it I just don't understand, mostly the politics. My primary wish is just to be privy to information regarding Religio Romana, to meet people with similar intere...

Re: Cupid & Psyche : allegorical aspects

Okay, I know this post is very old, but in art both Roman but also especially medieval and renaissance, Psyche was portrayed with butterfly wings. Artists seemed to have loved the myth as there are numerous paintings inspired by it, especially concerning the trials Psyche is put through by Venus f...

Re: Review of 'Rome' (1st & 2nd season)

I admit, I avoided this show for a very long time, up until this fall in fact when I finally watched both seasons. My lack of HBO played a minor part in not watching the series. My main reasons were fear of historical inaccuracy and that it was just an excuse to show something decadent i.e. lots of ...
