L. Livius Seneca mag. omnibus sociis aliisque s.p.d.
For the convenience of the socii, as well as members of the public, I am posting Latin and English copies of the Regula here in our forum.
REGVLA COLLEGI LATINI
- Hac regula Collegium Latinum ut collegium culturale Rei Publicae Romanae conditum est his propositis:
- Usus linguae Latinae ubique fovendus colendusque, litterae propagandae, nova opera creanda, et educatio institutioque eiusdem augendae;
- Versiones in Latinum supplendae subveniendaeque pro Re Publica;
- Status publicus linguae Latinae advocandus et usus hortandus monendusque in Re Publica.
- Omnibus civibus Romanis liceat socii Collegi Latini fieri.
- Socius utri magistro approbandus est.
- Omnes socii, qui cives optimo iure sunt, suffragium habento.
- Habento duo magistri collegialiter magisterium collegi et invicem vetanto. Sunto primi inter pares; pro collegio loquuntor, deliberationibus collegi 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 Octobribus 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.
- Liceto utri magistro collegium convocare, quae convocatio illi una quidem septimana antea annuntianda est.
- Liceto unicuique socio collegium convocare nisi utri magistro displiceat.
- Unicuique suffragatori rem coram convocatione ferre licito.
- Aliquid propositum collegi et erogatio pecuniae, nisi alibi provideatur, parte maiore suffragiorum indiget ut valeat.
- In omni re Collegi suffraganda, tria suffragia faventia saltem ferri debent ut valeat.
- 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.
- Pars dodrans omnium suffragatorum collegium dissolvi potest; si collegium sic dissolvatur, denarii sui Aerario Populi Romani dantor.
- Pars dodrans suffragiorum hanc regulam emendare potest.
THE RULE OF THE LATIN COLLEGE
- By this rule, the Latin College is established as a cultural college of the Roman Republic for the following purposes:
- To foster and nourish the use of the Latin language everywhere, to propagate its literature, to compose new works, and to advance education and instruction of the same;
- To supply and assist with Latin translations for the Republic;
- To advocate for the official status of the Latin language, and encourage and offer guidance concerning its usage within the Republic.
- All Roman citizens are able to become members of the Latin College.
- A member is approved by either magister.
- All members who are citizens optimo iure shall have voting privileges.
- Two magistri shall have joint authority over the College, as well as the power to veto one another. The shall be first among equals, speak for the College, preside over the College's deliberations, and determine spoiled ballots, for the magistri are the moderators of the Latin College's forum.
- The voting members together have legislative authority.
- Tied votes for resolutions or elections, according to the mos maiorum, shall be considered to have failed.
- The magistri are to be elected by a plurality for a term of one year beginning October 15, but:
- If either office is vacant, the other magister shall convene the College and hold an election;
- If both offices are simultaneously vacant, any other voting member is authorized to convene the College and hold an election;
- If the College lacks both magistri and voting members, control shall be surrendered to the Curule Aediles so that order might be restored.
- An extraordinary majority (three-quarters) may remove a magister from office.
- Either magister shall be able to convene the College, which must be announced to members at least one week beforehand.
- Any member shall be able to convene the College, unless either magister does not consent.
- Any voting member shall be able to bring business before a convocation.
- Any resolution of the College, including the disbursement of funds, unless indicated otherwise, requires a majority to stand.
- In every matter of the College to be voted upon, at least three votes must be cast in its favour in order to stand.
- Disputes between members should be settled privately, or else by a majority, with the magistri intervening as necessary.
- For grave violations of the purposes or rule of the College, or the mos maiorum, an extraordinary majority (three-quarters) may expel a member.
- An expelled member may appeal their expulsion to the Curule Aediles, or if they are a pleb, to the Plebeian Aediles.
- An absolute extraordinary majority (three-quarters of all voting members) may dissolve the College; if the College is thus dissolved, its denarii are to be surrendered to the Treasury of the Roman People.
- An extraordinary majority (three-quarters) may amend this rule.
