I wish you all a warm welcome to the Republic!

And a big welcome to my sister, Secunda C. Longina!

If any of you have any questions, I, or any magistrate or citizen will be happy to help you. (:

Salvete Omnes!

I am Publius Sallustius Quadratus! I currently reside in the province of Mississipia Borealis, although I am originally from the province of Nova Hispania Ulterior. I don't know the Latin name for Chicago (or if there is one yet since Chicago is a name derived from an Native American word) but Chicago is where I live now.

A little bit about me, I am a Roman history and culture enthusiast. I have been attracted to and interested in the culture of Rome in particular for a few years. I think there were many things throughout my life that led me to Rome but certainly more recently the thing that made me more interested in Rome was definitely my love of classical architecture. Although some classicists will insist that no classical architecture exists beyond the classical period in Greece and that all other's outside of Greek Classical architecture are merely derivative appropriations, I am one of those who loves not only the original classical forms of the Greeks but all their derivations through Rome and into the Renaissance, Baroque and Neoclassical styles.

Roman architecture fascinated me not only because of the use, adaptation and innovation in style based on classical Greek architecture but also for the great ingenuity of Roman engineers who experimented with new materials and techniques that became the most advanced engineering technology of the ancient world.

Aside from my great interest in Roman architecture, I also have a great love of Roman art. Classical sculpture, again not only Greek but of course Roman and all later imitations from later periods, has always been a special favorite of mine. I am also very interested in the terracotta work of the Etruscans and in the magnificent fresco paintings of both Etruscan and Roman cultures.

So much of Roman history fascinates me and my interest and love of Roman history has grown over the last few years. I chose the name Sallustius in honor of the great Roman historian Gaius Sallustius Crispus.

I am also interested in participating in the politics of Roman Republic and in working to grow our community and bring Romans together from all over the world.

I am a personal practitioner of Cultus Deorum and am looking forward to learning more and joining with others in practice to honor the Gods.

I do not speak any Latin or Greek, nor can I read either but I am eager to learn both. I hope that I can do more to learn Latin here in the Roman Republic and someday learn some Greek as well!

I have a love of theater and acting and I would love to collaborate with others in the production of some great works of Greek and Roman drama!

Finally, I just want to ad that I am so happy to find a community of people who share a passion and love for Roman culture and religion and I am so much looking forward to working with everyone to promote Roman tradition all over the world!

Hello everyone! My name is Secunda Cassia Longina and you can probably tell that I'm Cassia's sister/best-friend. I'm from Florida and I am studying biology and medicine but she has convinced me to join this group...she spends so much time devoted to this group so I thought I would give it a try. I only know a little bit of Roman history, from what Cassia tells me and I hope to learn more over time.

I am new to the Roman Republic, I spend a lot of spare time studying history. Rome has been a long time interest if mind is study in great depth. I have spent a lot of my time studying the evolution of the Roman military both Pre 107 BC (Marian Reforms) and after. I would like to eventually participate in reenactment if we do them for the Roman Army. I also do World War 2 reenacting so I have previous experience with it. I am also interested in learning Latin. I have already submitted my email on the forum related to this. I am looking forward to getting to know the community and learning more in depth about the Roman way of life.

Taurus, I am pleased to welcome in our ranks another person who is interested in historical reenactment! It is great that a community of people passionate of historicalreenactment always growing in our Republic. Welcome home, brother-reenactor. (=

Secunda... wow! I do not believe... another Cassiа Longinа! It's amazing! Now, instead of the one guiding star, our path will be covered by the two guiding stars, bearing one name!.... After all, what could be better than Cassiа Longinа? Right! Only two "Cassiа Longinа"! Welcome to the Republic! (=

Vale bene,

A note from the Cassiae:
Thank you, Severe. You make us sound grand - truly (and me)!

I am more than glad to have my dear younger sister/best-friend in our ranks and I am sure that she will grow to be a valuable asset to our group! And hopefully more "Cassia Longina"s in the future! (:
