Roman Temples

Salve!

A subject that I have found constantly interesting is the subject of Roman Temples and sacred space. I know that the books that are being suggested by the leaders of our spiritual leaders have some information, I would like to open a dialogue within our community about Temples and sacred spaces. I can't help but find the architecture fascinating as well. Let us discuss this item as a people!

Vale!

Salvete amici!

As you might know Roma Aeterna is planning to build a modern temple, an idea I like very much.
Unfortunately it appears that the temple will be built in the US, which means most likely that only the local commnity will benefit from it. Perhaps we should aim for a similar project, but ours should be in Rome or another historical site (e.g. Pompeii).
I think our Republic has the better chances to succeed, if we are really committed. However we have to expand our base in Italy and our cooperation with the CPR.
But at least we could start the project within our Republic. What do you think about it? Or would you prefer simply to support Roma Aeterna's effort?

Valete!

Brutus sal.

A temple is in our intermediate future.

Step one is aquiring funds, and a strong-growing CDR first and foremost.

Here at the RR we are rapidly establishing funds at a increasing rate. The CDR is also growing and publications are being written at the moment that shall assist in growing a strong and identifiable Roman tradition.

I also think private temples are noteworthy. I hope to build a temple with my own funds in the next few years. I have privately provided financial support to the temple now built in Sarmatia and hope to translate their good work to other locations. This is the type of collaboration we should seek.

It is not a matter of will the RR and its citizens build temples. It is a matter of when.
