Roman Religion Overview

Nine augures are high priests assisting magistrates in taking the auspices and advising the Senate and the magistrates on various aspects of divination, not the least of which is the proper handling of prodigies and portents. The augures are empowered to create templa, or sacred spaces. The augures form the Collegium Augurum, presided by the magister collegii, the chief augur. The college of the augures is the second highest ranking of the four major priestly colleges of the Nova Roman Republic.

Powers and duties of individual augures

The Constitution of Nova Roma states:

b. Individual augurs shall have the following honors, powers, and responsibilities:
1. To define templum (sacred space) and celebrate auguria (the rites of augury);
2. To declare obnuntiatio (a declaration that unfavorable and unsolicited omens have been observed that justify a delay of a meeting of one of the comitia or the Senate).
