Start a Local Chapter of Nova Roma Today!

Citizens are encouraged to establish local communities under the guidance and direction of Nova Roma. Local groups may be formally recognized in two ways. First, a group of five (5) or more citizens may apply for and be granted the status of an Oppidum. Groups consisting of thirty-five (35) or more citizens may apply for and be granted the status of a Municipium. Oppidia and Municipia are self-governing entities, which elect their own Magistrates and Assemblies, and issue their own edicts (edicta) and laws (leges).

Leges approved by the comitia of a local community shall have precedence over edicta of local magistrates of that community. Leges of a local community and edicta issued by local magistrates shall take a lower precedence than the constitution and laws of Nova Roma, the senatus consulta of the Senate of Nova Roma, and the decreta of the pontifical and augural colleges of Nova Roma.

The actions of local comitia and magistrates shall be subject to intercessio by the Propraetor (provincial governor) and by the Tribuni Plebis and Curule Magistrates of Nova Roma in accordance with the constitution and laws of Nova Roma.

Local magistrates shall be considered under the authority of the Propraetor America Austrorientalis, and/or as delegated/regulated through his/her Legates (Praefectus/Praefecta Regio) in terms of authority conflict.

For more information on forming an Oppidum or Municipium in your area, contact the Praefectus Regio for your home region or the Propraetor America Austrorientalis. To download an application (.doc format) for recognition of an Oppidum or Municipium, click here.
