The Collegium Sacerdotium (Latin: “College of Priests”) is a religious, philosophical, and cultural cooperative of the State of Sandus. The cooperative is tasked with being an organisation and venue for citizens to express their religious and philosophical beliefs, being an academic institution to develop Sandus’s independent culture – also known as “Sancta” culture, and the education and preservation of religious and philosophical beliefs that are either dead or on the cusp of death.
The College is run by a high priest, or “Sacer Flamen”, which is – by law – always the Sôgmô. Citizens and non-citizens alike may join the Collegio, and certain members may become flamines in a certain area of religious, philosophical, or historical study. “Flamines maiores” are appointed to represent certain specific religions or pantheons, whereas “Flamines minores” are those with a specific task. A by-law from Iunio MMXIV (June 2014) also established “sodalitates” – confraternal bodies in the College charged with specific functions – for: religious expression, modern pagan studies, indigenous people’s culture, philosophy in Sandus, work with the Kremlum Sandus State College, micropatriological studies, Sancta culture, and the Sacerdotium editorial board.
