Round-Up: February 18

I'm finally back, after losing one week (or more really) to the cold and flu - ugh! Here is a round-up of today's blog posts (you can browse through previous round-ups at the Bestiaria Latina Blog archives). You can keep up with the latest posts by using the RSS feed, or you can subscribe by email.

AudioLatinProverbs.com: Today's proverb is Errores medicorum terra tegit. In English: The earth covers the doctors' mistakes. Listen to the audio, and ponder just what the Latin saying tells us about medical malpractice!

AudioLatin.com: Verses: Here is some more 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 the famous trisagion: Sanctus sanctus sanctus Dominus Deus omnipotens.

Greek Via Fables: After finishing up with the Latin fables of Abstemius, I've embarked on a new fable project under the auspices of the eClassics ning - the Greek fables of Syntipas! Today's fable is Ὄνος καὶ τέττιξ, Donkey and Cicada, a wonderful story about the poor foolish donkey who, as usual, is trying to be something he is not! If you would like a bit of Greek to read, I can highly recommend these fables. You will find the text in paragraph form and also a segmented version to make the reading easier.

For an image today, I'll let the Greek Beast of the Week widget supply us a portrait of this week's mythical creature!
