Page 2 POST-GAZEI-rE, JANUARY 16, 2015 Stir00 l r. f lr',e. A weekly column highlighting some .. I l.w l,.t    of the more interesting aspects of our ancestry.., our lineage.., our roots. Vesta was the Roman god- dess of the hearth, similar to the Greek goddess Hestia, but she was worshipped by the Romans during ancient times independently of all connection Greece. The worship of Vesta goes back to the time when it was difficult but necessary to obtain fire. Then, as well as even now among some primi- tive tribes, they developed the custom of always keep- ing a fire alive for the use of the community, and even to carry it to new settle- ments. This custom was pre- served in the religion of later Greeks and Romans even after more modem technolo- gies had been developed. The sacred fire, the source of all Roman life and power, was kept alive in a struc- ture known as the Temple of Vesta, and it was con- stantly tended by a group of virgin priestesses that were known as the Vestals. They resided near the temple in the Forum Romanum. The whole concept goes back into antiquity where the Vestals represented the daughters of the primitive tribal chief, and they kept alive the State fire in their father's hut. The public worship of this god- dess was maintained in the temple of Vesta, but her pri- vate worship was preserved in every domestic hearth.

It is also interesting to note that at this time in history; about 700 B.C, the king was the high priest, and in this office he was known as "Pontifex Maximus" or "Pontiff." There were at least five successive temples here in Rome that were built in honor of this goddess, and all adhered to the same style of architecture. It was always a small circular edifice with a domed roof that was sup- ported on columns. This was thought to typify the round earth and the vaulted sky. The interior contained a low circular altar upon which burned the perpetual fire. The maintenance of this fire was the chief duty of the six vestals. Numa's temple stood for about three centuries until the Gauls burned Rome in 390 B.C. It was soon rebuilt and the second edifice stood for about fifty years. The third temple to Vesta stood until the great fire under Nero, and the fourth lasted for about one hundred years. The remains which now mark the consecrated site belong to the last rebuilding by Septimius Severus and this work is contemporary with the great arch of Septimius Severus at the opposite end of the Forum Romanum. I feel that the history of the perpetual flame is one of the many, many nice things about "Stirpe Nostra," what's your opinion?

Run date: 1/16/15 Res Publica by David Tnnbull Let Freedom Ring The third Monday in January, which this year falls on January 19 th, is a federal holiday in the United States, cel- ebrating the Birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr., offices of the national and states governments will be closed. Dr. King, was a leader -- many would argue an indis- pensable man -- in the mid-twentieth century struggle for racial equality in America. It was a struggle that culmi- nated in the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the 50 th anniver- sary of which we celebrated last year. That act outlawed discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or na- tional origin. This year we celebrate the 50 th anniversary of.the Voting Rights Act of 1965, prohibiting racial dis- crimination in voting. When President Ronald Reagan, on November 2, 1983, signed into law the Martin Luther King, Jr., holiday he reminded his listeners that -- "Martin Luther King was born in 1929 in an America where, because of the color of their skin, nearly one in ten lived lives that were separate and unequal ... taught in segregated schools ... could find only poor jobs, toil- ing for low wages ... refused entry into hotels and res- taurants, made to use separate facilities. In a nation that proclaimed liberty and justice for all, too many black Americans were living with neither." President Reagan went on to remark that "Dr. King had awakened something strong and true, a sense that true justice must be colorblind." And Mr. Reagan pointed to both the progress made -- and yet to be made -- in the struggle for an America that lives up to her noble sentiment that all men are created equal, citing the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965. Reagan, as he so often did, then called on Americans to embrace and enlarge upon their better nature, and exhorted his listeners -- "But most important, there was not just a change of iaw; there was a change of heart. The conscience of America had been touched. Across the land, people had begun to treat each other not as blacks and whites, but as fellow Americans. "But traces of bigotry still mar America. So, each year on Martin Luther King Day, let us not only recall Dr. King, but rededicate ourselves to the Command- ments he believed in and sought to live every day: Thou shall love thy God with all thy heart, and thou shall love thy neighbor as thyself. And I just have to believe that all of us -- ff all of us, young and old, Republicans and Democrats, do all we can to live up to those Com- mandments, then we will see the day when Dr. King's dream comes true, and in his words, 'All of God's children will be able to sing with new meaning .... 'land where my fathers died, land of the pilgrim's pride, from every mountainside, let freedom ring.'"
