Latin for all occasions
« on: October 29, 2008, 04:09:38 PM »
A very lovely, funny Web site:

http://www.columbia.edu/cu/augustine/arch/omnibus.html

I particularly like Purgamentum init, exit purgamentum; Atque memento, nulli adsunt Romanorum qui locutionem tuam corrigant; Cum homine de cane debeo congredi; and of course Die dulci fruimini.

Nice stuff.
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"
Met. Meletios of Nikopolis & Preveza, from his ordination.

And now I'm jealous that you know and teach latin. LOL
You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

Oh, I know how to deal with Internet trolls! If I see a next nasty posting of a troll, I'll reply, "Heus, modo itera omnia quae mihi nunc nuper narravisti, sed nunc Anglice?" And if he shows signs of being at a loss, I'll add, "Vah! Denuone Latine loquebar?"  ;D ;D ;D
