Episode CXXVI - Vestal Virgins

from  Emperors of Rome

Sep 11, 2019

The Vestals were an order of priestesses who were sacred to Rome, and were respected and referred as symbols of a safe and stable empire. They had the all-important duty of maintaining the sacred flame, and if it were extinguished, it would be a sign of impending disaster.
