Edictum : EDICTUM CONSULAR 01/07 - CALLING FOR GOVERNORS

I ask all citizes who desires to undertake a propraetorship on 2007 (proconsulship in case of consular citizens) to send me your names until the ides of ianuarius (15). The same applies for current propraetores or proconsules who wants a new term.

The names will be submited to the first Senate meeting of 2007 (the initial forecast is by the end of ianurius or begging of february, still to confirm). The magistrature of the propraetor/proconsul starts since the releasing of the result of the Senatusconsultum no the forum of the main list.

I recall a propraetor/proconsul has all Imperium of a consul or a praetor (for practical purposes it is the same level for governors) inside the provincia, ie, the geographic limits which a Imperium is bounded. These offices were born on the Second Punic War, which there was necessary more ´manpower´ besides the two consules and one dictator to lead the roman army on the many far provinces where there were fights.

A citizen can send to the consul the name after 15th ianuarius, however, the name may only be submited to the second senate meeting the consules have not forecasted yet. So, I urge the citizens to respect the data, so the term serving can be early.

The citizens who asked propraetorships/proconsulships to previous consuls, Modianus and Strabo, don´t need to aks this call. We have the names.

I urge the citizens to remember the propraetor/proconsul is the first ´spokesman´ of Nova Roma to the new citizens on its own language and culture. So, if there is an office who can boost the gathering and keeping of new citizens, this is the office. I pray to Iove Optimus Maximus to grant our citizens wiseness and a generous heart to serve NR as governors.

Edictum : EDICTUM CONSULAR 02/07 - CALLING FOR INTERPRETERS

I ask all citizes who desires to undertake the office of interpreter on 2007 to send me your names and language mastered until the ides of ianuarius (15). The same applies for current interpreters who wants a new term.

The names will be submited to the first Senate meeting of 2007 (the initial forecast is by the end of ianurius or begging of february, still to confirm). The service of the interpreter starts since the releasing of the result of the Senatusconsultum no the forum of the main list.

I recall the interpreter has Potestas (granted by the Senate) to afirm the validation of a version of an official NR text on another language.

A citizen can send to the consul the name after 15th ianuarius, however, the name may only be submited to the second senate meeting the consules have not forecasted yet. So, I urge the citizens to respect the data, so the term serving can be early.

More information can be seen on the Tabularium on Lex Cornelia de Linguis Publicis. I recall new languages can be available by a SenatusConsultum.

On this edictum, I´d like to praise also our WikiMagistrates by such good tools on NR website that can provide us quick reference to any piece of legislation we want.

Edictum : EDICTUM CONSULAR 03/07 - CONFIRMATION OF PREVIOUS EDICTA ELECTIONS RESULTS

Consilium

Public Prayers

The consules carries the auspices of the State. So, Faustus has been mostly worried on keeping the Pax Deorum. As the Muses helps, Faustus prays on some poems.

To Ceres, by the Ludi Cerealia

Spring has come, autumn as well,

From all Earth we celebrate

The winter leaves, with summer too

One expects the heat to come back

Others pray for it go away

Two sides of the Orbe celebrates

And the sister of Iove we remember

Saturnia Ceres, holy Eleusina

Goddess of the farmers

Aventina dea of the Plebeains

On the happy days of your celebration

Look upon us with your good will

I know, oh peaceful dea,

My muse is more used to controversy

Than religious hymns

Make on this Cerealia, however,

An exception, and smile to my verses

Horatius would have much to teach

And Ovidius to laugh, but

Look with some good will,

If the verses have poor words

It is true that Aeneas had eaten

Your tables, with a no worst peel

Than these misplaced words

Orpheus had better rhymes

To move the will of your daughter

And your silent son in law

It is true, but Nero couldn´t sing

And being a good emperor,

It would be a bad exemple for a consul

Although showing some piety

Being a better poet than politician

And I am none of them, but

If on my complete incompetence,

These rag-tag words may move

At least a generous smile

from your nectar shinning lips

Oh Ceres, hear me in the name of the Republic

Grant wiseness to the Tribunes,

Make them the guardians they are called for

Keep the Aediles on the core of your heart

Look upon the sacred consules,

Make than worth of their offices

May the Senatores do not lose heart

And put their wiseness for a good use

Please bring Concordia by hand for us

May Nova Roma be her everlasting empire

A glorious but tiring task

Is being a Novorroman...

Each of us is a small Aeneas

On the path of his destiny

Fighting the Turnos of our own incapacity

To deal one with the other.

Yes, it is hard to pick so many

From so many corners of the world

In a same association, much to talk

Much to understand, much to do

Ars longa, vita brevis, said the poet

And when the novorromans lose heart

Discouraged by the natural struggles

Of human written comunication

You, oh magnifica dea,

Raise us, and strength our will

It is not our worth, I am sure

But only a supernatural influx

Which make us one, although many

It is a blessing of high origin

A thunder of Iove!

Without it, no money, no latin

No culture, no laws, no website,

No priesthoods, no magistratures

Could make this Republic

Alive... and keep it still alive...
