THE ROMAN IMPERIAL CULT  
Restoring the veneration of the Divine Emperors 


Divine Augustus

The Roman Imperial Cult, or the veneration of the Divine Emperors
was officially practiced throughout the Roman world for over five centuries.

Through this religious practice the civilized world honored the Divine as manifested through Empire.
Today this ancient faith is renewed as a modern religious path honoring Civilization, History and Romanitas.

     The Imperial Cult was not the worship of mere mortals -  it acknowledged that Deity works through those of Greatness. Just as Jesus is today worshipped as a Man who was God, the Divine Emperors were revered as Humanity infused with Divine power.

     The Prophets and Saints of all religions are revered for having been divinely chosen to manifest Religion, and Divine Emperors have been equally revered for being divinely chosen to manifest Civilization. 

     Worship of Deity expressed through humanity has always existed. The mythology and scriptures of all religions show that humans have divine spirit and can ascend to the realms of Deity. The Greeks and Romans honored many divine Heroes and Demigods long before the time of Empire,
and the spirit of each person was honored in the private rites of the household.

     Thus, the Emperors were honored during their lifetimes as manifestations of Divine Power, and venerated after their deaths as divine beings able to bestow blessings, and intercede with the Gods.


     Today we continue to honor the Divii Imperii, the Divine Emperors as Divine Beings who were raised to power by the Gods in life, and who continue to dwell with them in the Heavens. By honoring them we bless ourselves, our history, our civilization and our world.
