I would like to ask for help with the following phrase of with the reading matter at page 212 of the book
http://www.textkit.com/files/BLD_Latin_ ... f#page=222
â€œSaepe erat cum patre in cÅ«riÄ; quae rÄ“s effÄ“cit ut summÅs reÄ« pÅ«blicae virÅs et audÄ«ret et vidÄ“ret.â€
where Iâ€™m having some difficulty in understand.
The first part is easy, â€œHe often was with his father at the Curia,â€¦â€
But after that I canâ€™t see to work out the meaning. Dâ€™Ooge states in the notes that this is an object clause of result, but even with this help I canâ€™t understand.
I think that what is making me totally lost is â€œquaeâ€, as I canâ€™t see what it is. If it is a relative pronoun then it should be referring to â€œcÅ«raâ€. If it is an indefinite pronoun then it could mean:
â€œâ€¦ some business made PÅ«blius both hear and see the greatest men of the Republic.â€
But somehow doesnâ€™t seem right to me.
Thanks in advance for any help,
