Virtutes Romanae tabulae colligendae sunt…they really must!

Work, work, work…

This image jumped right into my head when I recognized that I seem to be in a mood to collate, calculate, consolidate and other c-ate verbs!  I might as well let the spirit move me to do a little record keeping around here.  After all, records must be kept!

Quite a while ago, I started a recurring series of posts on the Virtutes Romanae (Roman Virtues) and today, not for the first time, I noticed that I have to keep going back to look what virtutes I’ve already covered.  For my own sanity, I decided to collate the list here.  This will also come in handy for anyone who’s recently joined the party…since I never bothered to Categorize anything along the way, they are all linked here – live and learn.
















My brief accounting shows that I’m only about half way through the list of Roman Virtues…and now I remember why.  Seems I have exhausted the most straight forward and relatively easy to illustrate qualities from the list.  Several of the remaining are a bit more esoteric, and a bit more difficult to connect to the often diffident Richard Armitage with any certainty.   Sounds like a challenge to me!

Few can resist the double dog dare!

Few can resist the enticement of the double dog dare!

Well, I’ve never been one to walk way from a dare, so I shall apply myself in a renewed effort to make virtutes connections.  I’m guessing that with a good number of new projects debuting in coming months, Richard Armitage will provide me with some excellent compaRAnda!

    I see plenty of auctoritas in Mr. Thornton, and what woman wouldn’t want to strip him of his… dignitas?
