SENATUS CONSULTUM ON THE STATE SACRIFICE ON THE CONCORDIALIA, THE 20TH BIRTHDAY OF NOVA ROMA, AND ON THE PARILIA DURING THE CONVENTUS IN ROME, IN THE SACRED YEAR OF CONCORDIA
Enacted on: Die Natali XX Novae Romae, Kal. Mar. C. Claudio T. Domitio (II) cos. ‡ XXI ANRC et MMDCCLXXI AUC, Anniversario XX Novae Romae Conditae, Anno Sacro Concordiae (In the year of the consulship of C. Claudius and T. Domitius (II), on the 20th Birthday of Nova Roma on 1st March, 21 ANRC / 2771 AUC / 2018 AD, in the 20th Anniversary of the Founding of Nova Roma, the Sacred Year of Concordia)
I. The Senate of Nova Roma, in the name of Nova Roman People, gives an official mandate to the Consuls and Praetors, and to all magistrates, governors and priests of Nova Roma, and to the Praefectus Rei Publicae, to perform public State rituals on the Concordialia, the Kalends of March, the 20th Birthday and Anniversary of the Founding of Nova Roma, for the benefit of the Nova Roman Republic, the Senate and the People, the Quirites, our legions, our magistrates and the sacred colleges, for the well-being, prosperity, progress, success and triumph of the Nova Roman Senate and People, the Quirites, for the removal of the abusers of our citizens’ rights and the usurpers of our republic’s corporation, and in order to close our Sacred 20th Year and to solemnize the Vicennalia, this Sacred Year of Concordia, this current year of the 20th Anniversary, and to open a new decade and new era in the history of the Roman revival, Nova Roma. The officials who are required to offer sacrifice can choose to delegate someone to perform the ritual in their name and under their auspices.
II. As both Nova Roma and the Old Rome are celebrating the end of a decade, the Senate deems it most propitious to pray and sacrifice for Nova Roma in Rome in this special Year of the 20th Anniversary, the Sacred Year of Concordia, therefore, in the same manner and under the same rules as above, the Consuls C. Claudius Quadratus and T. Domitius Draco are given the mandate to offer sacrifices as mentioned above for the same reasons in the City of Rome, on the Parilia, a.d. XI Kal. Mai., on the 2070th Birthday of Rome, during the VIIIth Grand International Conventus of Nova Roma. In the same time, all other magistrates, governors and priests of Nova Roma are mandated to offer these sacrifices at the location wherever they are, with the same option to delegate the ritual as mentioned above.
III. Cn. Cornelius Lentulus, as Praefectus Rei Publicae and Pontifex, in representation of last year’s Interrex Pro Rege Sacrorum Cn. Cornelius Lentulus Alexander, is mandated together with the Consuls C. Claudius Quadratus and T. Domitius Draco, to finish the ceremonies of the Completion of the Founding of the Nova Roman People, by performing those rites and actions that are required by tradition to be performed in Rome Herself and during the Parilia.
