Decretum Pontificum de Pontificis Maximi Cooptatione Spatioque (Nova Roma)
As it is required that, on the loss of a pontifex maximus, a new pontifex maximus shall be appointed within thirty days, and as further research is required to properly determine what the duties of a pontifex maximus shall be, the Collegium Pontificum has determined that, in accordance with the laws of our Republic, it is best to appoint a pontifex maximus on a pro tempore basis, until such time as the aforementioned research may be properly concluded and a determination made on the duties of a pontifex maximus. The Collegium Pontificum having met to determine who shall serve in that position, and what the term of office shall be for such an individual, has concluded that:
- A. Flavius Galerius Aurelianus shall be the Pontifex Maximus, pro tempore; and that,
- B. Flavius Galerius Aurelianus shall serve as the Pontifex Maximus, pro tempore, beginning Kal. Apr. M. Moravio T. Iulio cos., and lasting until a decretum is issued detailing the duties of a pontifex maximus or through pr. Kal. Oct. M. Moravio T. Iulio cos., whichever is sooner.
