L'Homond's 'Historiae Sacrae' in Audio

Post by metrodorus » Fri Aug 04, 2017 7:24 pm

L'Homond wrote a useful children's version of the Bible in Latin, called 'Historiae Sacrae', containing 209 chapters. The stories cover the main Biblical narrative sections from Genesis until the time of King Herod. The Latinity is excellent - the first section begins with relatively simple Latin, which gradually increases in complexity over the length of the book.

L'Homond's Historiae Sacrae is now available as a complete Latin language audiobook at http://latinum.org.uk, for either download or streaming.

If you are not interested in the audiobook version, I still highly recommend this book if you are an intermediate Latin student, as it gives a good, if rather bare-bones, overview of sections of the Biblical Narrative. There are a variety of versions of the text available on archive.org.
I run http://latinum.org.uk which provides the Adler Audio Latin Course, other audio materials, and additional free materials on YouTube.
