I am trying to find resources on the "Numa Tradition" of Religio Romana  sad to say this is the only thing I can find  http://www.novaroma.org/nr/Numa_tradition  their is another site I found but its a much different type of thing.  I cant find anything else, and I would actually prefer to be a adherent of Numa Tradition Religio Romana no images of the Gods no blood sacrifices, and this was around before they started really (in my opinion) stealing everyone else's Gods lol.  I do understand that the Romans had the whole doctrine thingy where everyone just had different names for the same Gods but they truly added to the pantheon Jupiter used to be a powerful Shapeless God (like all the others) still same old God of thunder only he had no well lets say.... he wasn't given the stories and mythologies of Zeus yet so this is Jupiter in his purist form,  I want to follow the more or less original pantheon of Rome around the time of Numa Tradition (so this would be like right after Romulas dies cuz king Numa, the king that came after Romulas instated it.)  The Goddess Vesta (pretty sure its this Goddess) was simply represented by the flame (aka special lamp or in my case pretty much a candle)  even the Lars as I take it had a much more simpler role.  I am having trouble however trying to find info on these things I am trying to find, so any help, any of you can offer would be great.

Also just to add something I think since this is definitely not everyone's cup of tea (although I hope someone will have some info  Smiley  )  I realize the Numa Tradition isn't well known in the first place but their is something else I could use tho.  I have been searching Google for "Early Roman Pantheon" and such but nothing to what I am looking for, so if any of you have a site or anything that actually lists the basic original God's of the Roman Pantheon or something that would be great!

I don't know anything about it. However, if I remember what I've read correctly the early Romans got at least some of their deities from the Etruscans. You might want to see if this is accurate and, if it is, look into Etruscan deities. 30 years ago this would have been a dead end, but quite a bit has been discovered about the Etruscans in recent years so it may not be quite the dead end it once was.

In this case I will see about trying to get this book.

It doesn't look like there is much on Etruscan deities/religion in that book.
