I think those translations are really fine, Boban (small points: "plurimis" = "very or most numerous" or just "very many" + "ignavia" is more shameful "cowardice" than "fear"—"cowardly fear", perhaps)
Meâ sententiâ, Boban, excellentes tuas traductiones.

I agree about ignavia = cowardice. I don't know why I choose fear :roll:
It was maybe because of context in which that sentence was in text that I have read.
Anyway, thanks again, I really appreciate this help.
