Romans, though you’re guiltless, you’ll still expiate
your fathers’ sins, till you’ve restored the temples,
and the tumbling shrines of all the gods,
and their images, soiled with black smoke.
~Horace, Odes, III, 6; A. S. Kline trans.

18 September 2010: Aedes Venus Genetrix

Twelve initiates gathered at Aedes Venus Genetrix (Temple of Venus) in Nashville Tennessee for a Lararium Workshop and Ancient Talisman Creation Workshop presented by Sacerdos Veneris Genetricis, L. Iulia Aquila. Initiates and camillae (sacerdotes in training) learned how to set up a lararium, simple evocations, basic hand gestures, basic mechanics of how to perform sacrifice (i.e pouring wine into the focus), ancestor worship and also basic talisman creation and associated ritual.
