L. Horatia Adamas C. Florio Lupo C. Curtio Philoni P. Sextio Laevo L. Livio Senecae omnibusque S.P.D.

I am not at my best due to an unfortunate medication change by a doctor who has never seen me, but prescribed an alternate medication which leaves me feeling as if I got hit by a truck--again, given that that happened to this then-pedestrian some years ago. I felt better after that than I do now.

Lupe, I at least do receive notices of requests for memberships for the Collegium Latinum. Probably Seneca does as well as he is my co-magister. In fact, I have approved at least a couple of new members by that system. However, there is no way that I can ask a prospective member why he or she is interested in this group (there are those who like to collect memberships, offices, etc., but have no interest beyond that), or ask whether or not he / she has studied Latin at all, or for how long, whether he / she speaks Latin, etc., etc., all of which are useful bits of information. If I click on the link provided, the person is automatically admitted without the possibility of any further inquiry, whereas on Yahoo lists one may ask these relevant questions without difficulty, although there is no guarantee that the petitioner will respond. Those who don't do not get admitted, at least not by yours truly. I don't think that you are an officer of the Collegium Latinum, so perhaps that is why you do not receive such notices. If you are an officer of the Collegium Philosophicum, you should indeed receive such notices for that group, but probably not for this one (Latinum).

Laeve, I would agree with you that the wording and the English translation for the regula of the Collegium Philosophicum should be settled before voting. Those who can't read Latin with reasonable fluency (the overwhelming majority of most populations) probably don't even know what is in that regula.

In the version of the CL regula posted by Laevus, please note that 'utri magistro,' dative, is required with the gerundive, not 'utro magistro,' the ablative. 'Uter' is one of nine adjectives I call 'the weird sisters,' * whose declension is irregular. Mostly their parts are in the first and second declensions, but the dative singular is in the third declension (utri) and the genitive singular follows the pattern of the demonstratives, ending in -íus, with the i long and therefore stressed: utríus. 'Petitio,' being feminine, like all third declension abstract nouns in -(t)io, requires a feminine complement, 'aperta,' but 'petitio' does not seem to be the best term for this. 'Rogatio' is the term Cicero used; 'petitio' is rare in this sense, and seems to be late as well. Better still would be a rewording, e.g., 'Licet omnibus civibus Romanis societatem Collegi rogare / licet omnibus civibus Romanis se cum Collegio jungere.' [Here I would add 'magistro approbante']. There are some other errors there which need improvement.


*mnemonic: UNUS NAUTA, for unus, nullus, ullus, solus, neuter, alius, uter, totus, alter. The genitive of alius is very rare, often substituted by that of 'alter.'

Vale, et valete!

L. Horatia Adamas P. Sextio Lævo L. Livio Senecæ C. Curtio Philoni C. Florio Lupo omnibusque S.P.D.

Last night I was unable to log in to view a post on this topic, but all seems well now--except for the side effects of a certain medication on me, albeit not the same one as earlier. I have copied the text below in order to facilitate my responses; there are some grammatical errors aliaque talia.


Rationes
Hac regula Collegium Latinum ut collegium culturale Rei Publicae Romanae conditum est ad rationes sequentes:

The phrase 'ad rationes sequentes' seems odd; perhaps something more like 'huic proposito' [for this purpose] or 'huic rationi.'


Usum Latinitatis ubique fovendum,

Melius: Usum linguæ Latinæ. 'Latinitas' has a different shade of meaning. We might also add 'colendus / colendum' to 'fovendus / fovendum.'



litteras propagandas, nova opera creanda, et educationem exquisitionemque eiusdem augendas;
Interpretationes Latinas supplendas subveniendasque pro Re Publica;
Statum publicum Latinitatis

Et iterum: linguæ Latinæ

advocandum et usum monendum

fortasse melius: hortandum. Shouldn't much of this be nominative, and possibly with the subjunctive or the future imperative?

in Re Publica.
Socii
Omnibus civibus Romanis liceat socii Collegi Latini fieri.
Socius utri magistro approbandus est.
Omnes socii, qui cives optimo iure sunt, suffragium habento.

Regimen

Habento duo magistri collegialiter magisterium collegi et invicem vetanto. Sunto primi inter pares; pro collegio loquuntor, deliberationes collegio praeponunto; decernunto suffragia irrita esse, nam magistri moderatores fori Collegi Latini sunt.
Socii suffragatores potestatem legiferam communiter habent.
Suffragiis in aequo stantibus, e moribus maiorum rem vel candidatum cecidisse decernitor.
Magistri pluritati eligendi sunt unum annum qui Idibus Octobris

Octobribus, third declension, and in agreement with "Idibus."

incipit, sed:
Si alterum munus vacat, alius magister collegium convocato et comitia habeto.
Si ambo munera simul vacant, unus quisque suffragator collegium convocare et comitia habere potest.
Si collegium et magistris et suffragatoribus careat, Aedilibus Curulibus traditor ut status reficiatur.
Pars dodrans suffragiorum munus magistro abrogare potest.

Convocationes
Liceto utri magistro collegium convocare, quae convocatio illi una quidem septimana antea annuntianda est.
Liceto unicuique socio collegium convocare nisi utri magistro displiceat.
Unicuique socio statum optimi iuris habenti rem coram convocatione ferre licito.
Aliquid propositum collegi et erogatio pecuniae, nisi alibi provideatur, parte maiore suffragiorum ac tribus suffragiis saltem fertis indiget ut valeat.

Moderatio
Rixae inter socios privatim placandae sunt, vel parti maiori, magistris intercedentibus, si necesse sit.
Ob nefas contra rationes regulamve collegi, vel morem maiorum pars dodrans suffragiorum socium expellere potest.
Socius expulsus adversus talem expulsionem ad Aedilem vel Curulem vel Plebeium, si plebeius sit, appellare potest.

Dissolutio
Pars dodrans omnium suffragatorum collegium dissolvi potest; si collegium sic dissolvatur, denarii sui Aerario Populi Romani dantor.

Emendationes
Pars dodrans suffragiorum hanc regulam emendare potest.

The major differences can be summarized as follows:
The purposes of the Collegium Latinum (I);
The Magistri are elected by pluralities rather than strict majorities (VIII);
The Magistri can be removed from office by an extraordinary majority (IX);
Any vote of the College requires at least three votes to be cast in order to be valid (i.e., a quorum of three is set) (XIII);
An absolute extraordinary majority is required to dissolve the College (XVII);
An extraordinary majority is required to emend the bylaws (XVIII).

The clause is a little odd, I admit, but considering the participation level at times I feel that it approaches a compromise between just two people against one being able to carry a proposal and not being able to raise a quorum to accomplish anything. Should we set the quorum at five or higher?

Be careful not to run the risk of paralysis because of too strict a quota.

Salve Philo!

The clause would allow three to carry a proposal without needing two more to disagree but make up the quorum.
