ELIZABETHAN PROVERBS: Here is today's proverb commentary, this time by Taverner: Taurum tollet, qui vitulum sustulerit: He that hath borne a calfe, that also beare a bull, he that accustomed him selfe to litle thinges, by litle and litle shal be able to goe awaye with greater thinges. One named Milo, was wont every day to beare a certaine way on his shoulders a calf. At length the calfe grew to a great oxe, his daily exercise made him still able to beare the oxe, when the oxe was now of an exceding great quantitie, ye see what maistries use worketh.

FABULAE FACILES: The fable from the Fabulae Faciles widget is Satyrus et Viator, a story better suited for winter than summer since it involves snow (this fable has a vocabulary list).
MILLE FABULAE: The fable from the Mille Fabulae et Una widget is Astrologus Stellas Contemplans, a wonderful story for those of us who might be distracted by our own thoughts.

Below is one of my Greek Bible Art graphics; for the individual Greek, Latin and English versions of the graphic, see the blog post: ὁ μιχαὴλ καὶ οἱ ἄγγελοι αὐτοῦ τοῦ πολεμῆσαι μετὰ τοῦ δράκοντος. Michaël et angeli ejus præliabantur cum dracone. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon.
