All Beliefs are Welcome Here!
I believe that pagan sites should have a wide range of different pagan 'religions' then just the most popular. So when I was looking, and found there was no Roman group, I decided to found this one. Now I do practice Religio Romana, even though I'm just a beginner, and I feel that there might be those out there that want a place to come and talk to others about their religion, the Roman Gods, and how they practice in the modern world.
Now what is Religio Romana? Religio Romana is the worship of the Roman gods and goddess as close to how the Ancient Romans practiced as possible. This was one of many religions that were attacked by the church when they were going through the conversion of the Roman Empire. We use primary and secondary sources, though we do modernize somethings. We honor Jupiter, Juno, Minerva, and many others. There are some debate about weather you can be Christian and still worship the gods.
I personally don't have a problem with this and I'm not here to judge you if you do. This group is non-judgmental and will not ask you if you still practice your former faith. As for me I'm not pretending to be a Roman, who wears Roman clothes during a ritual and doesn't believe in what I'm doing. I wear regular clothes and believe in the Roman gods and their beliefs, though not all of them. Also, I'm not connected to Nova Roma.
While I do like what Nova Roma has done, I view them as people pretending to be Romans and not believing in the gods, though they spend a ton of time trying to get the ritual right. I do adopt their calender for my use but that's because the calender is available to all. That's the only problem that I have with Nova Roma. I hope that you enjoy it here and may Vesta watch over you and your family.
