Julia Paula - Roman Empress & First wife of Emperor
goddess principally associated with
fertility, who played a key role in
Roman religious festivals and myths.
From the third century BC, the increasing
Hellenization of Roman upper classes
identified her as the equivalent of the
Her cult began in Ardea and Lavinium, Latium. On August 15, 293 BC, her oldest known temple was dedicated, and August 18 became a festival called the Vinalia Rustica. After Rome's defeat at the Battle of Lake Trasimene in the opening episodes of the Second Punic War, the Sibylline oracle recommended the importation of the Sicillian Venus of Eryx; a temple to her was dedicated on the Capitoline Hill in 217 BC: a second temple to her was dedicated in 181 BC.
Venus seems to have played a part in household or private religion of some Romans. Julius Caesar claimed her as an ancestor (Venus Genetrix); possibly a long-standing family tradition, certainly one adopted as such by his heir Augustus. Venus statuettes have been found in quite ordinary household shrines (lararia). In fiction, Petronius places one among the Lares of the freedman Trimalchio's household shrine.
Julia Cornelia Paula or Julia Paula was a distinguished, Roman noble woman who lived in the 3rd century. Paula was a member of the Cornelius (gens) of ancient Rome. She was a Syrian woman of Roman descent and her family was a distinguished family from Syria. Paula’s father, Julius Cornelius Paulus was a prefect of the Praetorian Guard in Rome; however, his ancestry is not known. Paula was well educated and was a charming person.
In 219, Julia Maesa (eldest sister of Roman Empress Julia Domna), had arranged for Julia Cornelia Paula to marry her grandson, Rome’s new emperor Elagabalus. Their wedding ceremony was a lavish ceremony that occurred in Rome. Paula became a Roman empress, as Elagabalus’ first wife and was given the honorific title of Augusta.
In early 220, Elagabalus ended his marriage to Paula. They had no children. Elagabalus divorced Paula to marry the Vestal Virgin Julia Aquilia Severa. His marriage to Severa was considered as scandalous because she was still a Vestal. Apart from falling in love with Severa, Elagabalus married Severa as apart of the religious process of worshipping the Syrian Sun God El-Gabal and integrating El-Gabal into Roman religion.
After the divorce, Elagabalus removed Paula's Augusta title. She withdrew from public life and her fate afterwards is unknown.
