THE MOS MAIORUM

As Praetor, Aristodemus Deloricus Desponius held court at Ragnarok. A vanquished foreign king was brought before him, to be tried for his crimes against the Roman State. Refusing to kneel, the king told the court, "The Praetor and I are equals, I will stand."  This foreign king was found innocent of any sedition against the Roman State. Aristodemus sentenced him to the cross anyway, saying, "You have insulted me in saying that we are equals, for I am a Roman, and you are only a king."

Mos Maiorum PDF  

Scipio Africanus Freeing Massiva

"For who is there so worthless and lazy that he would not wish to know how and under what kind of government the Romans have brought under their sole rule almost the whole of the inhabited world in less than fifty-three years; for nothing like this has ever happened before. Or who can be so devoted to any other subject of study that he would regard it as more important than the acquisition of this knowledge?"

-Polybius (I,I,5-6)

Literal translation: "the ways of our ancestors." Rome's great empire was founded on the adherence to old traditions that originally ensured her rise to dominance over her neighbors. This catch-all phrase encompassed a great many things about ancient Roman culture. Rome's religion, martial traditions, government, law, etc. The Mos Maiorum was the way things were done in Rome, the sense of what a Roman perceived as fitting and proper. As such, it is the most fitting and proper title for our society's guidelines and structure. The Mos Maiorum transcends actual law. It represents and encompasses our traditions and policies. Our laws are included herein, and are a part of the Mos Maiorum. The Mos Maiorum is anything written or unwritten, anything stated or implied about what Rome is. Rome's greatness is owed directly to our adherence to the Mos Maiorum.
