Learning from D. H. Lawrence about Ancient Rome Goddess

The City of Rome and the Great Mother

Esoteric teachings of Golden Citizens of Ancient Greece

by Natasa Pantovic

It is in the nature of humankind to tell stories, and at the root of every culture we find myths and legends. A hellenistic myth considers Rome to be an Ancient Greek city, narrating a story of a Hellenic Gods and Goddesses. The city of Romolo e Remo, Venus and Mars, cats and dogs, the centre of the original conflict of a female Goddess based worship and a male God dominated rituals.

The story goes back to the Ancient Greece and the Great Mother who has all through the ancient history had a role of the Creator Goddess. Shakti if your wish, with her Kundalini force.

Etruscan Places by D H Lawrence about Ancient Rome and Goddess

Etruscan Places by D H Lawrence about Ancient Rome and Goddess

D.H. Lawrence (1885–1930), an English author, read: philosopher, scientist, researcher, a young rich-man travelling, a rare human being who with a set of unusual circumstances has gained knowledge, experience, and wisdom at the time just after the descovery of electricity or just before the two World Wars, had time and resources to be writing Etruscan Places, was fascinated by the mystery of ancent Greece, the great Goddess that was worshiped through the rituals of our ancient civilizations, open only to the initiated, related to the myth of Demeter and her daughter Persephone, the eternal virgin.

This world famous English author, in his book as published, describes four ancient Roman sites: Cerveteri, Tarquinia, Vulci, and Volterra. Lawrence tells us wonders about Rome that existed before Christians, Rome that had a sense of freedom and brilliance that he compared with the Roman desire for conquest. This pre-Roman or Ancient Greek art became for him ‘one Etruscan leopard, even one little quail, is worth all the miles of others that are ‘utterly uninteresting, a bore’. About the same I felt when reading Ancient Greek Philosophers and comparing them to later Ancient Roman Philosophers. This artistic expression trend has continiued for almost 2,000 years, until the 16th century when the most amazing Italian researchers have discovered Ancient Greek works that were hidden from the humankind.

Lawrence’s description of the art describing our journey towards death: ‘In the tombs we see it; throes of wonder and vivid feeling throbbing over death. Man moves naked and glowing through the universe. Then comes death: he dives into the sea, he departs into the underworld.’

Lawrence describes 16 tombs and their frescoes in detail, noting that ‘either twenty-five or twenty-six’ were then visible. Of those discussed by Lawrence, only six are regularly open to the public today; five are closed, and five can be visited by appointment. Each tomb is now visible only through a glass door. Just very recently, in 2017, each Ancient Roman (read: Ancient Greek) archaeological site became an archaeological park, Vulci today has an average of 20,000 visitors per year, and the necropolis in Tarquinia up to 100,000.

Inspired by frescoes and tombs, Lawrence tells us ‘you cannot think of art, but only of life itself, as if this were the very life of the Etruscans, dancing in their coloured wraps with massive yet exuberant naked limbs, ruddy from the air and the sea-light, dancing and fluting along through the little olive trees, out in the fresh day’.

The Inghirami Tomb, for example, contains about 50 of the carved alabaster sarcophagi and was discovered in 1861, transferred to the National Archaeological Museum in Florence, where a life sized replica of the tomb was built

New excavations are occasionally carried out, one of them was in the area of the Tomb of the Sea Waves in Cerveteri, in 2016.

The most famous attraction of Cerveteri is the Necropoli della Banditaccia, which has been declared by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. It covers an area of 400 hectares of which 10 of them can be visited, encompassing a total of about 1,000 tombs. It is the largest ancient necropolis in the Mediterranean area.

These most amazing tombs date from the 900 BC to the 300 BC

As in the Ancient Egypt or Ancient European Danube Culture, those who worshiped her wished to achieve a new birth in death. Nut, the Egyptian all Mother sky Goddess, arches over Earth to swallow the Sun, to let Ra run through her body during his night journey, so she symbolised the Cosmic power that is all encompasing, all knowing, and enlightening, the great mother that when drawn inside the Ancient Egyptian coffins promised the same nurture and rebirth for the souls of the dead.

Historically, ancient Rome is the Roman civilization you all know about, from the founding of Rome in the 800 BC to 500 AC, the civilisation that has started as a city state in Italy, traditionally dated to 753 BC, and it gave its name to the empire that ruled Europe.

In its existence, the Roman state evolved from a democratic classical republic to an autocratic dictatorship. It is often grouped together with ancient Greece, as the Greco-Roman world. Yet the world was always either Greek or Roman, Byzantine or Latin. In between these two worlds existed Balkans with its own Ancient Danube civilization, and to the south, we had Egypt as the advanced Kingdom of Africa, and Turkey that held the Ottoman Empire...

Back in time, back to the Greek democracy, to Athen, to Babilon, to the first ever writing script, before the religion step into the worlds as dogma, supporting rulling classes, turning our progress into regression, so for a moment in time that lasted 2,000 years we had only 3 books distributed among our few scholars, the Old and New Testament.

Ancient Rome's Name

The story of the development of the Greek language into the Latin, tells us that Ancient Greeks formed a city with a male and a female name “Rome” and "Romos" or "Romylos" (Remo or Romolo), dedicated to his mother, here we perhaps read about the historical story of the King who worshiped Dionisus, his city of Gamzigrad and his mother Romus.

The word Rome signifies the strength, or “forza". In an opera of Romolo e Remo, according to Varrone the year of birth was 753 AC, the 21st of April. It is also revealing that during the ancient times, Etruscans called “Rome”, "Ruma", that in Latin was later pronounced Roma. The twin brothers Romulus and Remus, descended from the Trojan prince Aeneas. Their mother Rhea Silvia was impregnated by Mars, the Roman god of war, the twins were considered half divine. 

Another legend, recorded by Greek historian Dionysius of Halicarnassus, says that Prince Aeneas (at the time of only consonants written as the name of Gods, Kings or Rulers, the Prince's name was most probably AXeNS) led a group of Trojans on a sea voyage to found a new Troy, that was originally destroyed by the 10 years War. After a long time in rough seas, they landed on the banks of the Tiber River. Considering when the event has happened, more than 2,000 years ago, one ought to think in numbers of no advanced travel, after the War, so 3 - 4 - 10 ships with 10 - 20 - 30 people on them) from Ancient Greece have landed in South Italy and formed the city of Rome... The myth says that the place was so small that had no women, so they had to bring thier brides from other villages.

The word "ruma", with the variations of "rumis" or "rumen", signifies, in Etruscian, "poppa", a female so "ruma" is not only a female wolf who mythologicaly offers the nutrients to the kids but also the one that makes them politically and economically "strong", in latino "valentia" or in greek "romé".
