Salve Marcelle,

Let me echo the sentiments of my friends Gaius Falco and Sp.
Postumius Tubertus. Welcome! We are delighted to see a new member
coming into our Res Republica. NR seems to have a steep learning
curve but it is never too overwhelming because of the guidance
available by her citizens. Don't hesitate to ask any questions and
those questions we may not know, someone else here will. Enjoy Nova
Roma and we look forward to your postings.

Vale bene,

Quintus Lanius Paulinus

Salvete omnes,

Here are a few programs that you may want to view the first half of June:

June 5 11:00 pm EDST
World Conflict. Foot Soldier: The Romans. Host Richard Karn looks at the
Roman legionnaires, who conquered and dominated most of the known world for 500
years, and left behind a legacy of language, culture, architecture, and
government.

June 8 8:00 pm EDST
Almanac. The Great Empire: Rome: The Republic of Rome. A sweeping chronicle
of one of history's most dynamic empires. Part 1 features the city's founding
by Romulus and Remus; overthrow of the Etruscan monarchy; and the republic's
formation and ultimate undoing with the rise of imperial Rome. Host Joe Mantegna
introduces Rome's great faces - Pompey, Cicero, Caesar, Antony, and
Cleopatra.

June 8 9:00 pm EDST
Almanac. The Great Empire: Rome: Age of Emperors. After Caesar's murder, his
great-nephew Augustus was victorious in the civil wars that followed, becoming
the first emperor. Host Joe Mantegna explores this sensational scandalous age
when palace plots, hostile takeovers, and imperial family intrigues were
humdrum. Features Augustus, Caligula, Claudius, and Nero, among others.

June 8 10:00 pm EDST
Almanac. The Great Empire: Rome: Building an Empire. Host Joe Mantegna visits
the vast territories conquered by the imperial army - by the 2nd century AD,
the empire spanned three continents. The over 4,000 Roman cities were cultural
melting pots, where diverse customs and beliefs blended. Features life in
Pompeii, the flamboyant emperor Hadrian, and religious revolts in Judea.

June 8 11:00 pm EDST
Almanac. The Great Empire: Rome: The Enduring Legacy. The final episode
reveals the birth of Christianity and how this religion that the emperors initially
tried to destroy ultimately passed on the empire's legacy. Highlights
include: the crucifixion of Jesus; religious persecutions; rise of Constantine, the
first emperor to embrace Christianity; and Justinian, Rome's last emperor.

June 12 11:00 pm EDST
World Conflict. Foot Soldier: The Greeks. Story of the brave Greek warriors,
who adorned themselves in gold, fought under Alexander the Great, and became a
virtually unstoppable ancient war machine. Host: Richard Karn.


Valete,

G. Lanius Falco

> Good, now we are all in agreement...CAN WE GET ON WITH IT?

As you know, I agree wholeheartedly that the census is of enormous
importance to the republic, but the law specifies that it will be
conducted for sixteen weeks, ending on Oct. 31. That places the
beginning of the census on July 12. I don' think it unreasonable to
give the censores a bit more than a month to make the necessary
arrangements for conducting the census. If the census hasn't started
by then, I shall be among the loudest demanding action, but it seems
only fair to withhold such a demand until the time specified by law
for the census to begin.

Vale.

G. Iulius Scaurus Claudiae Fabiae Calpurniae salutem dicit.

Salve, Claudia Fabia.

Thank you for posting the Altavista Babelfish machine translation URL.
So much really good scholarship available on the net is not in
languages spoken by all Nova Romans. Free Translation's service at
http://ets.freetranslation.com/ provides machine translation for a few
languages which Altavista does not. Of course, machine translation is
still in its infancy and the results are frequently difficult to
decipher if one doesn't have a rudimentary understanding of the syntax
of the languages involved and some familiarity with the subject of the
material being machine-translated. I apologise if anyone has been
offput by the posting of so many links to sites in languages other
than the English in which most Nova Romans communicate here, but we
are an international macronation and excellent classical scholarship
can be found in many languages.

Vale.

Interesting memory. I'm afraid I can't even imagine Fr. Theodore (my

Subject: [Nova-Roma] Roman Music
From: "Quintus Lanius Paulinus (Michael Kelly)" <mjk@datanet.ab.ca>
Date: Tue, 03 Jun 2003 13:18:07 -0000
Salve Omnes,

I'm bringing this discussion over from the Imperialrome2 and Spanish
list. I have heard some re-created Roman music lately and I'm sad to
say it sounds awful; just semi-organized noise. I was wondering if
there are verbal records or melodies passed down over the ages.
Surely ancient tunes must have had a little melody and harmony. The
oldest ancient tune and song that exists according to the Guiness
Book Of Records is some Egyptian Nile river song that the boat men
and river workers hum to this day. I believe the Jewish folk have
some ancient tunes that still are sung with modern words. I tried to
look up old celtic songs but no luck; I believe one of the oldest
tunes in the English language left is "Summer Is a Coming In" circa
the 1100's.

If we could just find some old tunes passed down by humming from
generation to generation we could apply them to the Roman
reconstructed instruments. Any other thoughts on this?

Regards,

Quintus Lanius Paulinus

Salve!

Pliny the Elder, Naturalis Historia, Book 22, paragraph 12 (the one
beginning with "scripsit et Sulla dictator") mentions "this crown"
being awarded to Sertorius.

Apparently, the update of the "Album Gentium" (like
the "current population" number in the main page),
isnt automatic, needs to be done personnaly by the
Censores (or by the Curator Araneum?). That is, it can
take a certain time until somebody correct this...

But, since your name is in the Album Civium, your gens
is officially recognized:
http://www.novaroma.org/bin/view/gens?gensid=5530

BTW, there are gens with zero members still listed
(Victoria, Varia three times, Polonia).

My French teacher could have used them too: He is about 1.60 meters
"tall", and he rightly earned the nickname of "poison dwarf". By the
way, in his spare time, he is a basketball referee. Which is quite
funny to watch since he hardly reaches the players' chest.

French teachers seem to have that in common. But I still can recite
the "subjonctive" of "appartenir" by heart...
