Edictum Consularis Novae Romanae de Concordiae

Salvete bene Sodales

In January of this year, as Consul of Nova Roma I asked the Senate of that organization to bring a close to a chapter in its history by removing a reprimand it had issued years ago. It did not agree to do so but did agree the provide an expiration date. This followed on the apology of the year before, January 2007, issued by Nova Roma Censores M. Octavius Gracchus and K. Fabius Modianus. With this Edictum I remind the Senate of Nova Roma on its earlier decision and hereby restore the Good Name of our Aldus Marius in Nova Roma.

May this also bring a close to a chapter in the history of our Societas as well.

Valete optime et vadete in pace Concordiae

ante diem XI KALENDAS SEXTILIAS MMDCCLXI a.u.c. (22 July 20008 CE)

Ex Officio Consulares:

M. Moravius Piscinus Horatianus Consul: Senatui Populoque Novo Romano, T. Iulio Sabino consuli collegae, Quiritibus, et omnibus: salutem plurimam dicunt:

Iubeo vos omnes bono animo esse!

Edictum Consularis XII - MMDCCLXI: De Concordia pro A. Mario Peregrino:

In accordance with the Senatus Consultum of 28 January 2761 on setting an expiration date on the reprimand previously issued to the former Citizen currently known as Aldus Marius Peregrinus:

Be it known by all Citizens of Nova Roma and by all others that the Senate of Nova Roma determined that the reprimand was expiated by the lapse of time. Further, the Senate had set this date, the 2375th anniversary of the Dedication of the Temple of Concordia by Gnaeus Flavius, the first Plebeian Aedilis Curulis, as the date on which the previous action by the Nova Roma Senate against the person now known as Aldus Marius Peregrinus now expires.

This matter is not simply one of forgiving and forgetting past events, for Aldus Marius Peregrinus, as he is known to us today, although not presently a Citizen of Nova Roma, continues to work tirelessly for our Res Publica Libera, and continues to diligently promote Nova Roma to others in the greater community of Roman enthusiasts, of which Nova Roma is part.

Aldus Marius Peregrinus continues in a role for which he is so fondly remembered, greeting new Citizens, answering their questions, offering them advice and information. He is a valuable addition to our New-Roman List.

Aldus Marius Peregrinus extended valuable service to the Res Publica in working to develop friendly relations between Nova Roma and the Societas Via Romana, between our Res Publica and the Roman Way, most specifically for his part in arranging and promoting the feriae Latinae of April 2761. While attending the joint meeting in Austin, Texas, he acted to promote accord between the attendees to these feriae for Jupiter Latiaris, these being representatives of Nova Roma, SVR and TRW.

Aldus Marius Peregrinus, ever holding the Roman Outpost, continues to work for the reputation of our Res Publica Libera, putting to rest rumors and falsehoods about Nova Roma through his patient explanations. Since the time that the Censores apologized to him last year, Aldus Marius Peregrinus has become Nova Roma’s best and most prolific, if unofficial, ambassador to the greater community of Roman enthusiasts.

Inside Nova Roma Aldus Marius Peregrinus has been a model contributor to our website. He helps to fill in details of an episode of our history, for which he has written from a balanced point of view. He has taken pains to find primary sources and to document his statements. He has been a cooperative editor, accepting the suggestions of other members of the NRwiki team. More than that, he has been an exemplary wiki-citizen by strictly following our rules and guidelines and by seeking advice in uncertain areas.

Aldus Marius Peregrinus has not been a vanity editor, working on material pertaining only to himself, but he has also made helpful suggestions about our procedures. He has pitched in on the tedious behind the scenes work, for example, graphics editing, that earns no glory but that contributes to the smooth running and cohesiveness of our website.

Aldus Marius Peregrinus has been an active contributor to our wiki mailing list, thereby setting a positive example for cooperation and collaboration. His tone there has always been positive and helpful. Aldus Marius Peregrinus has been in every way a model participant and I personally have found it a great pleasure to work with him.

Aldus Marius Peregrinus has shown by his faithfulness, diligence, and persistence to be everything we would ever wish to see in a Citizen of Nova Roma. He is a worthy example of Romanitas to all Citizens of Nova Roma, and truly a beacon to the rest of the World on what it means to be a Citizen of Rome.

The Senatorial reprimand on the person now known to us as Aldus Marius Peregrinus is expired. All magistrates and Citizens of Nova Roma

Salve, Horatii Piscine -

I haven't looked at the NR Main List to see if anyone is bellowing in opposition, but I'm quite glad to see your Edictum.

Semper admirans et Romam Aeternam et Concordiam Gentium et nostrum Marium ipsum, rem vehementer laudo.

Bene vale.

Congratulations Marius... but really this is less about you having done something wrong to be forgiven, than it is about NR making up for its past transgressions. I am pleased with this turn of events and hope this reconciliatory mood continues.
