Disciplina

| |

Disciplina is the personification of discipline in the ancient Roman mythology.

Romans believe that what is taught is possible and that the greatest way to learn is from an honored example, therefore being disciplined in one’s tasks is to provide an example of what is taught. For her followers, the goddess was an embodiment of these traits. She was frequently venerated by imperial Roman troops, especially those who resided near the empire’s boundaries; shrines to her have been discovered in North Africa and Great Britain. The Latin term “disciplina” has several meanings, including education and training, willpower and self-control, subject-matter expertise, and a disciplined way of life.
