<onlyinclude>The [[Flamen (Nova Roma)|''flamines'']] are thirteen high priests who serve specific deities - though they are allowed to worship other deities as well. The sources tell us that a '''''flamen''''' was a ''sacerdos'' proper, and who was dedicated to the service of a particular deity.  A number of sources fix the number of ''flamines'' at fifteen (three ''maiores'' and twelve ''minores''), however the names of only thirteen of these are known with certainty. The ''flamines'' hold public rites on the days sacred to their deity, and oversee the general worship of that deity.

The flamines are thirteen high priests who serve specific deities - though they are allowed to worship other deities as well. The sources tell us that a flamen was a sacerdos proper, and who was dedicated to the service of a particular deity. A number of sources fix the number of flamines at fifteen (three maiores and twelve minores), however the names of only thirteen of these are known with certainty. The flamines hold public rites on the days sacred to their deity, and oversee the general worship of that deity. The flamines are present in the Collegium Pontificum.
