Online: Plato's Apology of Socrates in Latin

Post by Carolus Raeticus » Sat Feb 06, 2016 11:28 pm

Salvete omnes!

My transcription of Plato's "Apology of Socrates" (Latin version "Apologia Socratis" by F.A. Wolf) is now online. You can download it from its page at Project Gutenberg.

Valete,

Sperate miseri, cavete felices.

That's great, thank you! I really like the preservation efforts you undertake.

Some years ago I transcribed another translation, by Marsilio Ficino, which I put on Wikisource. It might be interesting to compare the two versions.

Salve!

Lucky me that I did not replicate your effort. By the way, I am just transcribing (or rather proofreading) the Crito, this time as translated by the very Marsilio Ficino.

Vale,

Sperate miseri, cavete felices.
