remember CONTENTUS ! Haha, its my new anthem. Your technique of using my small dictionary first, then the online dictionary, has been working well! This time, my dictionary missed 'coram' in 5.25 (which was pretty hard to find even on the net) and 'teloneum' in 5.27 (it kept finding Telamonian Ajax...

All outstanding help! Thanks so much for explaining the family tree, I can see how it would definitely improve Jesus' standing in the eyes of the aristocracy. And your breakdown of the Herod sister portion made it much more clear to me. The 'ergo' translation also helps, I think I saw the 'for his s...

Re: Answers to your questions

2.15 SECUNDUM VERBUM, SECUNDUM is a preposition meaning here « according to », thus « according to your word » = « according to what you said to me » ; SECUNDUM LUCAM means « according to Luke » Very helpful! I've encountered this many many times, but I've never known how to properly translate it -...

Ahh, this online dictionary is outstanding. It was the perfect help for compiling a quick vocabulary for the first two chapters of Luke. If anyone could use it, you can grab it at: http://www-personal.ksu.edu/~kirk/vulgate-vocab-1.doc I received my new copy of the new testament vulgate! This version...

Thanks! But the real credit goes to Dr. Grote, benissimus, and the others who have put together these resources! Feel free to email me if I can help, I'm still a beginner though so be careful =)

Many thanks again, all of this is just what I needed. Your knowledge of the text is outstanding, all of this background knowledge speaks volumes when I try to translate a new, unknown passage!

Ahh, I had the same problem! However, I've unscrupulously converted them to mp3! (ha HA!) I have them all here on files if anyone wants them, they fill just over two cd's so it will take a while to download them, but youre more than welcome. My upload is about 50kbps.

Re: Luke 1.11 > 1.17

Thank you for the continuing help!!! My instructor is turning up my pace now, so I'll have to produce much more translations after this posting. He would like the first four chapters, or as much of it as I can do, by next Tuesday. Ill try to post up what ive done if you want, but to reduce the time ...

Vale! I tried a lot of different study techniques until I settled on this one: 1. Read the chapter, take notes on new forms or grammer 2. Write out the vocabulary (This helped a TON, I almost always had trouble with the vocabulary for chapters where I didnt do this quick step) Another winning Vocabu...

1.9 EXIIT is from EXEO ... EXIIT UT Ahh this makes much more sense. Is the clause here, following ut, a result clause instead of a jussive clause? 1.10 « for incense that hour » : rather « at incense time » (like « tea time »), say that as you please. HORA is an ablative of time, denoting a moment....

The Vulgate, alas ! It is the Latin work which I dislike the best ! I feel your pain! The instructor isn't too keen on the classic Latin texts, his main interest seems to be Koine Greek, especially early Christian texts. Greek! =) I also thought the vulgate was much more recent. Latin must have cha...

Sorry I had one more question about grammer if I could. In these passages, or any passages really, do clauses end with the finite verb? For instance, in the first verse where 'rerum' appears after the clause. Thanks again! I'll make sure and keep my posts to the parts of the passages I have question...

Great, thanks benissimus! Ill post the first few verses I've translated from Luke if I may: 1.1 Since it's true that many have tried to record a chronological narrative of the things completed by us, 1.2 as those who have seen and preached of them (sermonis??) from the beginning have handed down to ...

I've just started my new Latin class at college so I'll be working with the Vulgate now, do you think you could check some of my translations for it? We're translating Luke first, the going is really slow! There are many new words I've never encountered with Wheelock or 38 Stories, plus the word ord...

Thanks so much for your help Skylax! You're right, I've been confusing the pluperfect and imperfect subjunctives, this was just what I needed to see what I'm doing wrong. I'll also work on better translations of cum and cum clauses. And what's this about insufficient knowledge of English?? You've no...

I'd wholeheartedly recommend the Dale Grote book, its been great to work with. Also, check out Dr. Grote's website ( http://www.languages.uncc.edu/classics/Wheelock/ ) youll find audio resources where he goes through each chapter's tutorial exercises in wheelock, lecture style. Its a tremendous help.

Seeking Loci Antiqui Aid

Hello, this is my first post after ages lurking, so here goes! I'm working with the Loci Antiqui independently, and I was wondering if there is someone here who would check my translations. If there are translations of these passages up somewhere, that would work too, but I havent been able to find ...
