Round-Up: April 10

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.

Vulgate Verses. The Vulgate Verses book is now available (from Lulu Publishers), and I'm commenting on various verses included in that book for their special qualities in Latin. Today's verse is Messis quidem multa, operarii autem pauci, which features the postpositive particles quidem and autem.

Vulgate Verses. To accompany the Vulgate Verses book, I'm adding Study Guides at the Vulgate Verses blog. The Study Guide I've added today is for Group 27, which includes a line made famous by the rosary - Benedicta tu inter mulieres.

Greek Via Fables: Here's the latest from the Greek fables of Syntipas. Today's fable is Ἀλώπηξ καὶ πίθηξ, The Fox and The Monkey, a story about the boastful monkey and the fox who refuses to be taken in by the monkey's boasts!

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