I've read some on Hellenismos, but I haven't been able to find anything on the Roman religion. I looked at Beliefnet's Recon board, but I didn't find too much beginning info or anything like that. I've also checked Witchs' Voice links but again, not much luck. Does anyone know where I could find informative web sites on Religio Romana?

You may have done this, but try going to Google.com and searching for "Roman Reconstructionism." I tried that, and ended up with this page, which has a couple of links in it:


Googling really doesn't come up with that much stuff, though... I wonder where all the information is?

I also, by accident, found information on something called "Numinism" the other day; it seems to be at least partially based on Roman religion.

I hate XP.

Thanks. I'm in AP Latin; it's fantastic. :)

I have a question for you. I read this one thread that you created on this same topic, so I figured you'd be the one to ask. In order to follow Religio Romana, does one follow everything set out in, say, the SVR? Aren't some people followers of a mixed Greco-Roman religion?

Salve Araneae. Si vales, bene est, valeo. SVR communitas romana est quae hereditatem mundi Romani celebrat. (Ad kalendas graecas nos dictatores sumus.:)) Certe. Ut studes, e.g. - Tyrrhenis, societatem invenis quam culturae religioneque regnata est. Ab urbe condita Roma ipsa geographiae re publicaeque, neque culturae neque religione difinitur. Multi deae deique Romanis fuerunt et, enim, omne ignotum pro magnifico. Potes honorare deos oscos rusticos, deos graecos, et cetera.
Et pro barbaris ;) ...

Certainly. Rome is defined by geo-politics, not by a religion or culture. Within the Religio Romana everything unknown was held in esteem, so you can follow Greek religion as well. There's no conflict.

Vale bene!
