Collegium Pontificum

The non-corporate Collegium Pontificum of Nova Roma is the lawful collegium pontificum of our republic. There are 4 other pontifices in the Collegium Pontificum who do not participate in our sessions because they seceded from the republic and joined the faction conducting the “civil war”, led by Caesar and Sulla, against the lawful government of Nova Roma. For practical purposes, we do not count the 4 secessionists in the quorum.

  • Pontifex Maximus: C. Petronius Dexter
  • Pontifex: Q. Caecilius Metellus Pius Postumianus
  • Pontifex: Cn. Cornelius Lentulus
  • Pontifex: M. Pompeius Caninus
  • Pontifex: M. Claudius Marcellus

The 3 secessionist pontifices on leave due to their actions against the Government and People of Nova Roma, and thus not counted in the quorum are:

  • Pontifex: Q. Fabius Maximus
  • Pontifex: T. Iulius Sabinus
  • Pontifex: M. Cornelius Gualterus Graecus

The Collegium Pontificum includes the high priesthoods of the flamines. Nova Roma has the following flamines:

  • Flamen Portunalis: C. Petronius Dexter
  • Flamen Furrinalis: M’. Titinius Silvanus
  • Flamen Carmentalis: M. Hortensia Maior Fabiana Faustina
  • Flamen Florealis: M. Aurelius Cotta Iovius

The modern, Nova Roman, Collegium Pontificum also includes the Vestal Virgins. Currently we have no Vestals.
