Who has attempted to write Latin or Greek poetry?

Anyone?

I have tried and I find it relatively easy although I'm not a 100% sure it's all correct. I once read the old poets wrote approx. one or two lines a day, and Ovid topped that in his best days with approx. seven or eight. Of course, they didn't have dictionaries (didn't they? hmm) and the internet to help them out but still, I just wrote three lines in half an hour.

Roger is closely Followed by:

Robert Silverburg
Larry Niven
Orson Scott Card

newbe

Just stumbled accross this website while looking for some greek conjugation tools, I didn't think there was anything like it around. I'm currently a student at SUNY Albany where I'm studying latin and Greek. Unfortunately greek is only offered at the 500 level as an independant study and only if you have prior experience. Needless to say I lied to get in, and the prof didn't check. Besides studying these two I have minors in ...

Hello from a wet London.

I'm here to learn how to read old school. Well in this case very, very, very old

The Passion of The Christ

Now that it's out, has anyone seen The Passion of The Christ? Can you comment for us on the historicalness (outside of quoting scripture)? Was it actually pronounced in classical Latin, not church-Latin? Any first-century early-christianity historians here? I'm just looking for some good discussion on the movie, that's not just pro- and anti- jewish jobless folk venting... ;)
