We are building communities promoting ancient Roman culture along with its virtues and associated traditions
The Ludi Apollinares were games (ludi) held annually by the ancient Romans in honor of the god Apollo. We have reinstituted these games in the form of a festival celebrated for a week celebrated both online and offline.
Join us to celebrate the past, present, and tomorrow!
From the casual lover of Rome to the dedicated academic, the Roman Republic is a community for you. We are a home for those who are interested in Latin, living history projects, the Religio Romana, ancient history, the classics, and more.
Join us, risk-free. Being a member (citizen) of the Roman Republic is free.
The Roman Republic is a non-profit organization. Therefore, donations support all of our projects. Without the generosity of citizen-members, there would be no Respublica.
The philanthropy of our supporters provides the opportunity to building living Romanitas for the modern day.
