Biblioteca gallica

I found bibliotheca Galica is interesting source with many digitalized potocopies of ancient latin text in pdf`s.
http://gallica.bnf.fr

Can I download the full text or only page by page?

An idea

Here is an idea. There seems to be several people present that participate in the board and have a good deal of knowledge if not a great deal of knowledge concerning Greek without a lack of enthusiasm, too.

Why not make a textbook that would be ideal to begin with and advance through. This textbook could be make online collectively.

What's Love

...got to do with it got to do with it


Seriously though, there is one great unanswered question, what exactly romantic love is. Love between a boy and a girl. Please do not give long winded answers which come to various often contradictory conclusions, just summarize whether you think it to be real, a set value. How can it be though, when each situation is different and each person is different. That which one person ...

Different Ages of Latin?

I'm sorry if this has already been extensively discussed, but I have done numerous searches and come up with no threads. I looked in Wikipedia, but the articles were not extensive enough

What is the linguistic difference between the different Ages of Latin?

Old Latin
Golden Age Latin
Silver Age Latin
Late Latin
Medieval Latin
Humanist Latin
New Latin

Are the differences very great, or more similar to the difference between contemporary English and Shakespearean ...

Resources for Biblical Hebrew?

I'm not a complete beginner, as I already know some Modern Hebrew and can generally get the gist of Biblical Hebrew if I know the vocab. I would like to know if there are any free online grammars such as the ones posted here for Latin. My goal is learn more from a grammar standpoint, because I haven't really ever learned Biblical Hebrew grammar.

Thanks,
-Jonathan

carrus/currus

Beginner's question.

A text I've been perusing offers carrus, defining it as a cart or waggon. But then later, in the examples, it uses currus instead. My Latin reference lists both words, defining carrus as a four-wheeled baggage waggon, and currus as a chariot or car, especially for racing or war.

What's the real story on these two nouns?

idioms

does anyone know of any good (available) books or websites that list and explain latin idioms, especially in relation to the evolution of word meanings.

with other languages, i've found that idioms give me a better understanding of the words used in the idioms and often even the language itself. i'm hoping latin is no different.

i thought of just doing a google search, but i don't think i'm good enough at latin to judge ...
