Di benedaris vos.
The Sacra Flameno or High Priest of the Collegio Sacerdae, the College of Priests, has promulgated a by-law for the Collegio Sacerdae. The by-law addresses inactivity in the internal structure of the Collegio Sacerdae by refocusing the College’s commitment to religious expression, cultural and religious diversity, and the use of academia to develop Sandum and micronational culture. Changes include the addition of a sodality system, the broadening and defining of a flameno or priest-member of the College, the establishment of formal templae or sanctuary sites, and reforms concerning the College’s religious, economic, and academic functions.
