Round-Up: May 1

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 169, a group of proverbs which includes this lovely saying about small beginnings: De glande fit ardua quercus.

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 fine saying about faith and works: Fides sine operibus otiosa est.
