"Thygater hemon, ..."

I'd like to compose a birth blessing for my daughter.
I'm attending a parents' lesson these weekends and on this coming Saturday I'm supposed to come with one, with which to practice the blessing.

It's supposed to be written in Korean, but I'd like to make a greek version(OR translation), too.

What I'm having in mind is like this.(Okay you laugh at it, but please help me.) :) ...

"The Name of the Rose" by Umberto Eco

A while back, somebody here (I want to say Carola) mentioned "The Name of the Rose" by Umberto Eco ... so I eventually picked it up. It's a really good murder mystery, and I am having a difficult time putting the book down. It takes place in an Italian abbey in 1327, and the book has Latin scattered throughout the book. Very neat! The have this really cool library too!

Have any of you read ...

Notes on the Greek New Testament

I have just discovered this site, and it looks like a gold mine for anyone interested in NT Greek. Peter Misselbrook has written notes on every book, which include the text, notes on the text, and vocabulary of selected words.

Downloads are not too bad ( 1.9mb bor St Luke), and all in pdf format. :D

Greek or Latin first?

I would like to learn the classics in chronological order. My reason is that I want to be able to trace the development of ideas in the order that they appear. To do do that, it seems to me I should learn ancient Greek first. However, I am under the impression that students in the trivium generally learn Latin first and then Greek. I would definitely like to learn both. What are the pros and ...

"Quidquid Latine dictum sit altum viditur"

Probably most of you have already gotten this through the round of forwards that flood the world, but I thought it was cute; my brother sent me an email with the following "Latin phrases." (I wonder how many of them the ancient Romans actually used?) :lol:

Latin Phrases for all occasions


Impress your friends and relatives, talk to them in Latin. Remember:

Painting Cave Canem

A picture (Vaseul, Musee Garret) by the 19th-century French history painter Jean-Leon Gerome shows a man chained to a wall with the label Cave Canem attached to it. Figures in Roman costume in the background. Who is this? Where is the story?

Aoidoi.org tries PDF

I've finally found a LaTeX font for Greek which paints nicely in PDF. The one I use to generate the web pages at Aoidoi.org is very attractive, but when turned into PDF goes all furry and nearly impossible to read.

Here's a quick example of how the PDFs will look: 11 lines of Hesiod. Some of the accents may be wrong - the new font uses a different encoding than the old system. Comments on ...
