Regional coordinators will promote the project sodalitas pro DIIS in their home contries/regions
The construction of a Roman Temple today, is first of all a civic duty, a materialization of our Values. FROM ideas expressed in Internet via flow of Megabyte,TO marble, stones, columns, to follow our Roman ancestors .
A Nova Roman Temple in Rome will be our place to meet, to discuss, to feel at home. And for our Roman State will be a preferred place to perform the State rituals required in our calendar.
We would like to ask all interested citizens to join, support and to unite for this great, important project. This project will give to all citizens and amici of Nova Roma the opportunity to help to create and build a temple for the eternal Gods of Rome.
All cives and amici (friends) of Nova Roma are invited to join the sodalitas by making an application to the Collegium of the sodalitas, by providing their Citizen Name, their provincia, and their contact email address.
CHARTER OF THE SODALITAS PRO DIIS
It is more than 1600 years that public worship of Roman Gods had been forbidden by Theodosius I in 1144 AVC (391-392 CE). It is time for us to pay our debts to Immortal Gods of our people. The Gods that were protecting us, granting us strength, wisdom and fortune. The Gods that made us Romans.
It is time for us to invite Immortal Gods back to Rome and to give Them Their Place – The Temple. The long-term intent of this Sodalitas is to provide a temple to the Gods for the public worship of the Roman Gods in Rome. But as a short-term goal we will have several tasks not so fantastically difficult to achieve. Building the Temple of Iuppiter in Sarmatia for example.
Rome is the VRBS, it is the place to honor the Gods and it will ensure the rebirth of Romanitas thus benefiting Nova Roma as a whole.
