Australia Nova Romana Association

Australia Nova Romana (ANR) is the name given to the association in Australia that represents the Nova Roma Oceania chapter and subsidiary in the region. It is presently an unincorporated association by Australian legal definition.

To meet our obligations under the Australasian Living History Federation (ALHF) and to satisfy the local state law requirements for a not-for-profit (planned), ANR now maintains official association rules. These rules are designed to only be the basic bare-minimum framework required under local law, simply describing how we already do business as Nova Roma provincially, adapted to the legislation of Nova Roma and paying credence to the authority of the Nova Roma senate.

To learn more about how we locally handle personal data, please see the ANR privacy policy.

Australasian Living History Federation

ANR now provides public liability insurance to citizens resident in Australia. The Australasian Living History Federation (ALHF) recognizes ANR as an association within Australia. Unfortunately, citizens resident in the New Zealand cannot yet benefit from this membership. For a small fee (approximately $25 AUD) induvial citizens may become members of ALHF through ANR and be permitted to conduct public activities with liability coverage and be authorized under Australian law to carry authentic Roman weapons and artifacts, such as a gladius, hasta-tipped vexilla, fasces etc. Citizens can also be authorized to conduct public displays and religious sacrifices utilizing fires or fire sources.

Citizens can apply for membership with ALHF at any time by contacting the provincial praetorium.

Request for Event or Activity

Citizens can now plan with, and have their public events endorsed by, ANR (the governor and his staff) to have their event covered by ALHF supplied insurances. Citizens should lodge the following application to the praetorium to host an event:

Citizens and Nova Roma municipalities in Provincia Australia should use this application if hosting an event or activity:

a. in public, for the public or on public property;
b. that uses any form of weapon (real or perceived);
c. that will use any fire or open flame;
d. that uses any vehicle, plant or motorised implement;
e. that includes any actions considered risky or dangerous;
f. when 10 or more members are planned to attend;
g. where there is doubt about the safety of attending members;
h. where the organisers deem liability coverage is necessary.

Municipality Documentation & Reporting

Formal documentation and registration of municipalities are managed in accordance with Edictum 73.05 - Edictum provinciale de albis vicorum municipiorumque. Access to legal documentation and legislation of formal local communities in the province can be found on the Australia Nova Romana provincial website or by contacting the praetorium.


Online Research and Resource Repository

The praetorium manages a small collection of online, freely available public ebooks and articles on various Roman subjects. Access is exclusive to provincial citizens and can be granted upon request by contacting the praetorium.

If you have books, essays, articles and various other digital media that you would like to share with our library, please get in touch. We’d love to collectively grow a collection for all.


The Cohors Praetoria

Appointments are made under the authority of the Governor, in accordance with V.C.2 of the lex Cornelia Domitia de re publica constituenda.

III. Awarded the Civis Provincialis Hujus Anni (Provincial Citizen of the Year), it is my pleasure to congratulate Gaius Sempronius Scepsis Agricola. Provincially, he is responsible for the implementation and upkeep of the recognition by the Australasian Living History Federation (ALHF), providing an additional local coverage for citizens. He has also worked tirelessly in the local region in generating valuable community spirit and character, hosting activities for the growing number of citizens in the Melbourne region. He is a valuable part of the provincial team and I sincerely thank him for his loyalty, dedication, righteous feedback and display of Roman values.

IV. Awarded the Præmium Provinciale pro Excellentia Academica (Provincial Academic Excellence Award), I am most pleased to congratulate Tullia Sentia Silvana. She was able to bring her academic prowess in archaeology to bear and share her knowledge through a distinctly informative presentation on ‘Magical Gems and Jewellery From Bronze Age Greece to the Roman Empire’. Complete with an excellent presentation style, she was also more than willing to answer questions and converse with citizens to increase their knowledge in another aspect of ancient Rome. Tullia Sentia has also participated in other provincial activities and competitions previously and stands as a valued long-time citizen of the region.

V. I congratulate and thank the recipients this year for their contributions and participation. It is these forms of dedication and activity that make Nova Roma. I encourage all Provincia Australia citizens to consider nominations in the new year for outstanding Roman spirit and contributions in accordance with the Edictum de Præmiis Proprætoriis pro Consecutionibus.

IV. He shall posses the powers and responsibilities of a vice-governor, able to act in my name and carry out my directives, under my auspices, auctoritas and imperium.


V. This edict and the subsequent promotion takes effect immediately. No oath of office is required. I am satisfied that this does not create a conflict with his position on the committee of Ancient Roman Reenactors Victoria, rule 49(c) of the Association Rules. This edict will remain in effect until otherwise rescinded by the governor. C. Sempronius will continue to retain this position after his term in office as Quaestor, assuming the title of Proquaestor accordingly.

Edictum 74.01 - Edictum de Creationibus Cohortis II Legionis X Fretensis


Edictum 74.01 - Edict for the creation of the 2nd Cohort of Legio X Fretensis Australia

I. In my capacity as Legatus Pro Praetore Australiae, bestowed upon me by the Senate under Senatus consultum ultimum de rectoribus provinciarum, with the authority granted to me under Lex Vedia Provincialis, I may proclaim those edicta (edicts) necessary to engage in those tasks which advance the mission and function of Nova Roma.


II. In accordance with version III of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), signed a.d. X Kal. Mar. Q. Arrio (III) A. Tullia cos. ‡ MMDCCLXXIV a.u.c. between Nova Roma (NR) and Ancient Roman Reenactors Victoria (ARRV), I hereby raise, as an official act of levy, the second (2nd) Cohort with Legio X Fretensis to be a Nova Roma Autonomous Military Reenactment Unit.


III. The 2nd Cohort shall be a sub unit of the existing Nova Roma Allied Military Reenactment Unit Legio X Fretensis Australiana and will also be administered by ARRV. The extant edictum 73.02 - Edictum Proprætorium de societate cum Legione X Fretensi Australiana remains in force, now documented by the newest version III of the MoU. All existing Nova Roma citizens within Legio X Fretensis will now be assigned to the new 2nd Cohort for operations, as determined by the Legio X Field Officers.


IV. I hereby appoint Nova Roma citizen C. Sempronius Scepsis Agricola as Praefectus Cohortis, commander of the 2nd Cohort with Legio X Fretensis, as so recommended to me by ARRV.

Edictum 73.06 - Edictum de Fundatione Canalis Australici “Twitch” Vulgare Vocati


Edict for the foundation of the Australian Twitch channel

I. In my capacity as Legatus Pro Praetore Australiae bestowed upon me by the Senate under Senatus consultum ultimum de rectoribus provinciarum, with the authority granted to me under Lex Vedia Provincialis, I may proclaim those edicta (edicts) necessary to engage in those tasks which advance the mission and function of Nova Roma.


II. I hereby formalise and sanction the “Australia Nova Romana” Twitch channel (http://www.twitch.tv/austnovaroma). This channel will be a broadcast channel dedicated to all things Roman for, and within, Provincia Australia. To be managed through the Consilium Provinciae, all provincial and global Nova Roma citizens are invited to not only watch the live streams, but to host their own Roman related segment through this channel on Roman topic(s) of their choosing.


III. “Twitch” is a video live streaming service operated by Twitch Interactive, a subsidiary of Amazon.com, Inc. Introduced in June 2011, the site primarily focuses on video game live streaming, including broadcasts of esports competitions, in addition to music broadcasts, creative content, and more recently, "in real life" streams. Content on the site can be viewed either live or via video on demand. As of February 2020, it had 3 million broadcasters monthly and 15 million daily active users, with 1.4 million average concurrent users.


IV. It is intended that, upon obtaining ‘Twitch Affiliate’ status, the channel is to be offered to the Senate of Nova Roma so that the Republic would benefit from subscription funding that is received via this channel. Through negotiations, and if then sanctioned by higher magistrates or the Senate body, I, as the current channel owner will convert the accounts as necessary to relinquish control for the benefit of the Republic. Control would then be ultimately governed by the Praetors like other Nova Roma forums, unless otherwise determined by the Senate.


V. Potential streamers wishing to contribute programming to this Roman channel may do so by verifying available timeslots on this calendar: https://calendar.google.com/calendar/u/0?cid=Nmk3YnVxbnRwMHVrbjByNmh1dHE0aWRha29AZ3JvdXAuY2FsZW5kYXIuZ29vZ2xlLmNvbQ. They should then send an email to the praetorium with their concept and preferred time to broadcast. The Consilium Provinciae will provide assistance as necessary.

II. In order to maintain efficient oversight of Governor sanctioned vici and Senate sanctioned municipia within Provincia Australia, I hereby issue this edict. In addition to all requirements under Lex Fabia de oppidis et municipiis and Senatus Consultum Ultimum de Municipiis Populi Novi Romani, local groups granted the status of ‘vicus’ or ‘municipium’ are to maintain all official records on this forum website. Local elected magistri vici are responsible for completing and maintaining these records.


III. This edict is complimentary to any requirements to maintain similar records on the official Nova Roma website, www.novaroma.org. Due to the current site edit inaccessibility, this edict will remain in effect until this is resolved. This edict will be reviewed once the Nova Roma website is updated.

Edictum 73.03 - Edictum de electione vexilli provincialis


Edict for the official flag of Provincia Australia

I. In my capacity as Legatus Pro Praetore Australiae bestowed upon me by the Senate under Senatus consultum ultimum de rectoribus provinciarum, with the authority granted to me under Lex Vedia Provincialis, I may proclaim those edicta (edicts) necessary to engage in those tasks which advance the mission and function of Nova Roma.


II. As has been the custom in Nova Roma for years, provinces often adopt their own identifying flag or banner to represent their part of the Republic. I am pleased to formally announce and declare the Provincial Flag for Provincia Australia. It shall be adopted as the brand and logo for Nova Roma in Oceaniae.


III. It shall use the same colours as the Nova Roma flag; featuring Australia and New Zealand on a red background, with a golden S.P.Q.R. centered within a simple wreath. Above the central images shall read the words 'Nova Roma', with 'Australia' written underneath. It shall adopt the same aspect ratios as the Nova Roma flag when flown or used together. The design is intended to look similar to the Nova Roma flag and that of similar existing provincial designs including Italia, Gallia and Brasilia.


IV. The Provincial flag will always remain subordinate to the Nova Roma flag. When both are flown together, the Nova Roma flag takes precedence and shall be flown first from the left, with the provincial flag to the right. If in a moving parade or event, the Nova Roma flag should always lead. Where possible, the Nova Roma flag or vexillum must also be paraded if the Provincial flag is to be present for an event.

PROCONSUL CUM IMPERIO MAIORE


Edictum 72.01 - Edictum Proconsulare de rebus Provinciae Australiae intercedendis


I. Instructed by the senate, on the basis of my authorization as proconsul with greater imperium over certain provinces where I am not the actual governor, including Provincia Australia, I issue a special edict intervening into the internal matters of Australia in order to help and support the favorable developments in the province started by citizen D. Aurelius Ingeniarius.

II. D. Aurelius Ingeniarius started to develop an active local community of Nova Roma within Australia with promising success, entering contact with various Roman cultural organizations with the potential of alliance. As proconsul with supervising authority, I applaud and recognize the efforts of D. Aurelius. The governor of Australia, M. Claudius Nero legatus pro praetore is unfortunately incapacitated to conduct the necessary guiding and directing work and oversight, as he is located in a different geographical area, and as he is busy with other obligations and is currently unable to conduct fast and effective leadership, therefore I intervene with my imperium maius possessed over Australia and give the necessary authorizations to D. Aurelius Ingeniarius in order to build an active province of Nova Roma.

III. I hereby appoint citizen D. Aurelius Ingeniarius as my legatus in Australia, with the full title legatus proconsulis Cn. Lentuli Alexandri in Australia, and with the mandate to represent Nova Roma in my name and under proconsular power and authority. He has the special mandate to recruit citizens, recruit cooperating reenactment groups, and to establish a living and working community of Nova Romans in Australia.

IV. In addition to the previous office, I hereby appoint D. Aurelius Ingeniarius as the vice-governor of Provincia Australia, with the title praefectus provinciae Australiae administrandae. In this capacity, he reports to governor M. Nero legatus pro praetore Australiae, and secondarily, to me as his shared supervisor. His task is to govern Australia in lieu of the incapacitated governor, unless and until the governor becomes actively governing or instructs him otherwise. In case of need, I reserve the right to intervene, but intend not to, unless absolutely needed.

V. Oath of office is required, this edict takes effect immediately.


Date: Kal. Oct. Q. Arrio P. Annaeo coss.
