Round-Up: December 11

LatinViaProverbs.com: I'm started back to work on the online guide to the Latin Via Proverbs book, with grammar notes and English translations, working through the book group by group.

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 thrice-holy, or trisagion: Sanctus sanctus sanctus Dominus Deus.
