What is Romanitas?

Romanitas is almost untranslatable. 'Romanity', 'Romanism', or 'Romanness' don't really do it justice. Here, a Roman explains.

From One Peter Five

By Timothy Flanders

Why did Our Lord become incarnate at the dawn of the Roman Empire under Caesar Augustus?

Why is the Roman tongue essential to the liturgy and western civilisation?

The answer to both these questions is Romanitas.

At OnePeterFive, we have been blessed to work with Vincenzo Randazzo in Rome, as both correspondent to news from Rome but also interpreter of Roman culture. You can click on Romanitas to find articles on this important subject. On the podcast we expanded on these topics and began to discuss how these things are fundamental to our struggle. Not only that, we discussed a very traditional practice that must certainly be revived: the Trad pilgrimage to Rome

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
