Round-Up: December 10

AudioLatin.com: Verses: I've decided to start posting audio for the Vulgate Verses book also - just the audio, but there is a link to a page where you can get English notes and commentary on these verses also. Today's group includes Jesus's famous rebuke to Martha: Martha, Martha, sollicita es.

AudioLatin.com: Proverbs: Here is the audio for 10 more Latin proverbs - just the audio, but there is a link to a page where you can get English translations and commentary on the proverbs, too.

Here is a painting by Giotto of the adoration of the Magi:
