Nova Romanitas ("new Romanness", "revival of Roman culture") is the study and practical application of Roman culture and virtues, "Romanitas" and the "mos maiorum", the revival of all aspects of Roman life, from cultural like arts, language, literature, clothing, architecture, to spiritual such as the virtues, the religion, the ethics and philosophies in our everyday lives. Part of this is our educational mission divulging knowledge about classical culture. One of the cornerstones of Romanitas are the Roman virtues; those qualities which define the ideal state of being and behavior of the Roman citizen. It is as part of the mos maiorum that citizens are expected to take up Roman names for use within our society. Learning Latin, the language of Roman culture, is an equally important step towards becoming a modern Roman.
