Round-Up: December 13

Here is a round-up of today's Bestiaria Latina blog posts (you can browse through previous round-ups at the Bestiaria Latina Blog archives).

On a side note, I had a little article about teaching mythology online appear in Bolchazy-Carducci's eLitterae newsletter. There's not a direct URL I can link to, but here's a screenshot. You can sign up for this monthly newsletter at the Bolchazy-Carducci site. Today's proverb is Nulla dies sine linea. In English: No day without a line. Listen to the audio, and see both the positive and negative variations on this famous Latin saying.

Vulgate Verses. The Vulgate Verses book is now available (from Lulu Publishers), and I'm adding Study Guides at the Vulgate Verses blog. The Study Guide I've added today is for Group 9.

Latin Holiday Songs. For the holiday season, instead of a Latin Fable of the Day, I'll be posting a "holiday song of the day" at the eClassics ning. Today's holiday song is Primum Noel Cecinit Angelus, a Latin translation of the popular English carol "The First Noel."

Meanwhile, here is another image by Giotto, this time showing the annunciation to the shepherds in the right-hand portion of the image, with a large flock of sheep.
