Officium Censorium MMDCCLXVI
Oaths of Office
Edicta of the Censors
The edicta are general or individual rules of law that, within Nova Roma as in the ancient Rome, that this office is allowed issue. These rules provide enforcement, application, and completion of the general rules issued by the Constitution of Nova Roma, its By-laws, made by the People or the Plebs through their comitia (assemblies), or by senatus consulta, or decrees issued by the Senate of Nova Roma.
These edicta cannot be issued outside the fields of responsibily as defined by the Constitution, in its paragraph IV, A, 4, and stated above.
In the first column you may check the "Status" of the edictum: in force ("Val." valido) or lapsed. A lapsed edict has either be withdrawn/removed by the issuer or her/his successor ("Exp." expunctus), either been replaced by another one ("Sub." substituo), or, at last, vetoed ("VETO") by a higher magistrate (for ex. a consul : "COS") or by a tribune of the plebs ("TB"). The current censorial edicta are classed by number (2nd column). Except in an extraordinary case, the higher the number, the later the issuing day. The "Censor" head abbreviation designates the censor(s) who has issued it ("TGP" for Tib. Galerius Paulinus and "CnIC" for Gn. Iulius Caesar). The "Forum message ref" is the number of the original message posted in the Forum Romanum (Yahoo! "Main List"). The "Subject" indicated the nature of the edictum.
