Round-Up: April 24

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.

LatinViaProverbs.com: I'm working away on the online guide to Latin Via Proverbs, with grammar notes and English translations, working through the book group by group. Today I've posted notes for Group 168, a group of proverbs which includes this great saying about people who boast and brag: Minima possunt qui plurima iactant.

AudioLatin.com: Verses: Here is some more audio for the Vulgate Verses book - 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 this lovely saying about God's abode: In domo Patris mei mansiones multae sunt.

Greek Via Fables: Here's the latest from the Greek fables of Syntipas. Today's fable is Ὄφις πατούμενος, The Stepped-On Snake , a story that endorses the idea of the pre-emptive strike.

For an image today, I'll let the Greek Divinity of the Week widget supply us a portrait of this week's god or goddess!
