Rites and Rituals

Postby Lucius Vitellius Triarius » Sun Feb 14, 2016 10:16 pm

L. Vitellis Triarius et scribae omnibus salutem plurimam dicit.

Si valetis, bene est, ego valeo.

Salvete omnes!

For all cives of this new Res publica, who may be cultores of the Religio Romana, or those seeking to be, and who do not have a basic format for public and private rites, I have enclosed here a basic format that you can use in your personal devotions (with just incense as the offering) and in public as well for:

Kalends - 1st day of the month.

Nones - 5th Day of the month (January, February, April, June, August, September, November, and December) and 7th day of the month (March, May, July, and October).

Ides - 13th day of the month (January, February, April, June, August, September, November, and December) and 15th day of the month (March, May, July, and October).


Optime valete,

L VITELLIVS TRIARIVS
