Nepos' Agesilaus

Can anyone help me out with this sentence from Cornelius Nepos' Life of Agesilaus (6.3)

Namque illi, aucto numero eorum qui expertes erant consilii, commovere se non sunt ausi eoque libentius, quod latere arbitrabantur quae cogitaverant.

For they, by the increase in number of those who were not part of the plan, did not dare to move more and the more willingly because they thought ???? what they had been considering.

It's the 'latere' that's ...

Pages 21 and 22 in wrong order

While reading an article on the life and work of John Buridan, I came across a lot of Latin quotes, without any translation, and feeling like learning Latin sooner than I planned(after learning Greek for who knows how long).

The Philological Museum: Neo-Latin

The Philological Museum - by Dana Sutton.

This has a huge number of neo-Latin texts (mostly British) from the 1500-1700s, often with extensive commentaries. Also has a large collection of links to other neo-Latin texts and sites.

Mahatma Poppins

Mahatma Gandhi, as you know, walked barefoot his whole life, which
created an impressive set of calluses on his feet. He also ate very
little, which made him frail, and with his odd diet, he suffered from
very bad breath. This made him .......a super-callused fragile mystic
hexed by halitosis.

Jefferson on Greek pronunciation

Just a random link here.

I really enjoy reading Jefferson's comments on this question. If only today's executives and legislators were so learned and eloquent.

Emperor Pharr's new clothes

Hello All

This is a terrific forum.

I've been reading the Pharr book "Homeric Greek A book for Beginners" and I want to register my advice to beginners: I don't believe this is truly a book for beginners.

Like all other Greek instruction books I've read (with the possible exception of the Paul Jones "Learn Greek" book), the Pharr book is written in the style of turn-of-the-century British schoolmaster-ese. Example: Lesson 1 (yes, the very ...

Mortem Vitae Sequens?


I was told Mortem Vitae Sequens was Latin for "death follows life."

Can it be translated another way? Also, is it grammatically correct?

Thanks in advance!
