Jupiter was "the fount of the auspices upon which the relationship of the city with the gods rested. His image in the Republican and Imperial Capitol bore regalia associated with Rome's ancient kings and the highest consular and Imperial honours.
To thank him for his help and to secure his continued supportthey offered him a white ox bos mas with gilded horns.
Some scholars have viewed the triumphator as embodying or impersonating Jupiter in the triumphal procession. Originally, Rome was ruled by kings ; after the monarchy was abolished and the Republic established, religious prerogatives were transferred to the patres, the patrician ruling class.
Nostalgia for the kingship affectatio regni was considered treasonous. Those suspected of harbouring monarchical ambitions were punished, regardless of their service to the state.
In the 5th century BC, the triumphator Camillus was sent into exile after he drove a chariot with a team of four white horses quadriga —an honour reserved for Jupiter himself.
When Marcus Manliuswhose defense of the Capitol against the invading Gauls had earned him the name Capitolinus, was accused of regal pretensions, he was executed as a traitor by being cast from the Tarpeian Rock. His house on the Capitoline Hill was razed, and it was decreed that no patrician should ever be allowed to live there.
During their first secessio similar to a general strikethey withdrew from the city and threatened to found their own. When they agreed to come back to Rome they vowed the hill where they had retreated to Jupiter as symbol and guarantor of the unity of the Roman res publica.
Flamen Dialis Jupiter was served by the patrician Flamen Dialis, the highest-ranking member of the flaminesa college of fifteen priests in the official public cult of Rome, each of whom was devoted to a particular deity. His wife, the Flaminica Dialis, had her own duties, and presided over the sacrifice of a ram to Jupiter on each of the nundinaethe "market" days of a calendar cycle, comparable to a week.
Every time the Flaminica saw a lightning bolt or heard a clap of thunder Jupiter's distinctive instrumentshe was prohibited from carrying on with her normal routine until she placated the god.
Although he served the god who embodied the sanctity of the oath, it was not religiously permissible fas for the Dialis to swear an oath. This set of restrictions reflects the fulness of life and absolute freedom that are features of Jupiter.
Their creation was traditionally ascribed to Romulus. They were considered the only official interpreters of Jupiter's will, thence they were essential to the very existence of the Roman State as Romans saw in Jupiter the only source of state authority.
Fetials[ edit ] The fetials were a college of 20 men devoted to the religious administration of international affairs of state. Iuppiter Lapis is the god under whose protection they act, and whom the chief fetial pater patratus invokes in the rite concluding a treaty.
He can then declare war within 33 days. Several emblems of the fetial office pertain to Jupiter. The silex was the stone used for the fetial sacrifice, housed in the Temple of Iuppiter Feretriusas was their sceptre. Sacred herbs sagminasometimes identified as vervainhad to be taken from the nearby citadel arx for their ritual use.
Sardonyx cameo Louvre The role of Jupiter in the conflict of the orders is a reflection of the religiosity of the Romans. On one side, the patricians were able to naturally claim the support of the supreme god as they held the auspices of the State. On the other side, the plebs plebeians argued that, as Jupiter was the source of justice, they had his favor because their cause was just.
The first secession was caused by the excessive debt burden on the plebs. The legal institute of the nexum permitted a debtor to become a slave of his creditor. The plebs argued the debts had become unsustainable because of the expenses of the wars wanted by the patricians.
As the senate did not accede to the proposal of a total debt remission advanced by dictator and augur Manius Valerius Maximus the plebs retired on the Mount Sacer, a hill located three Roman miles to the North-northeast of Rome, past the Nomentan bridge on river Anio.
The senate in the end sent a delegation composed of ten members with full powers of making a deal with the plebs, of which were part Menenius Agrippa and Manius Valerius. It was Valerius, according to the inscription found at Arezzo in and written on the order of Augustus as well as other literary sources, that brought the plebs down from the Mount, after the secessionists had consecrated it to Jupiter Territor and built an altar ara on its summit.
The fear of the wrath of Jupiter was an important element in the solution of the crisis. The consecration of the Mount probably referred to its summit only. The ritual requested the participation of both an augur presumably Manius Valerius himself and a pontifex.
All magistracies and the tribunes of the plebs had resigned in advance. The task resulted in the XII Tables, which though concerned only private law.
The plebs once again retreated to the Sacer Mons: The secession ended with the resignation of the decemviri and an amnesty for the rebellious soldiers who had deserted from their camp near Mount Algidus while warring against the Volscians, abandoning the commanders.
The amnesty was granted by the senate and guaranteed by the pontifex maximus Quintus Furius in Livy's version or Marcus Papirius who also supervised the nomination of the new tribunes of the plebs, then gathered on the Aventine Hill.Free practice tests, questions and resources for tests such as the SAT, GRE and GMAT.
