Nova Roma has completed its 20th year!
CELEBRATING THE XXth ANNIVERSARY OF THE FOUNDING OF NOVA ROMA
Nova Roma was founded 20 years ago, March 1, 1998.
Nova Roma is an international organization dedicated to the study and restoration of ancient Roman culture. From its founding until it ceased to be the center of Imperial authority Rome laid the foundation for our modern Western civilization. Founded 2,750 years after the Eternal City itself, Nova Roma seeks to bring back those golden times, not through the sword and the legions, however, but through the spread of knowledge and through our own virtuous example.

The modern practice of the Roman religion, the Cultus Deorum Romanorum is our attempt to reconstruct the religion of the ancient Romans as closely as possible. The Cultus Deorum Romanorum, cannot be approached by inserting Roman deity names into Greek religion or any other system, for it is a unique product of the culture that created it. "The pax deorum was considered to be the normal state of affairs, that is, peaceful co-existance between two parties, divine and human, who have agreed not to interfere with one another except under particular, well-defined circumstances." If you need help, advice or assistance regarding the cultus deorum, don't hesitate to contact our experts.Learn more ...
The Roman Way is the study and practical application of "Romanitas" and the "mos maiorum", the revival of all aspects of Roman life, culture, virtues, ethics and philosophies in our everyday lives. One of the cornerstones of Romanitas are the Roman virtues; those qualities which define the ideal state of being and behavior of the Roman citizen. It is as part of the mos maiorum that citizens are expected to take up Roman names for use within our society. Learning Latin, the language of Roman culture, is an equally important step towards becoming a modern Roman.
