Round-Up: December 15

Here is a round-up of today's Bestiaria Latina blog posts (you can browse through previous round-ups at the Bestiaria Latina Blog archives). Keep up with the latest posts... Get the RSS feed, or you can subscribe by email. In conjunction with the Vulgate Verses book, I've posted about the Latin Bible phrase Alpha et Omega, a famous symbol in Christian art derived from the Book of Revelation. Proverbs: Here is the audio for 10 more Latin proverbs - just the audio, but there is a link to a page where you can get English translations and commentary on the proverbs, too. Today's group includes this great saying about quality versus quantity: Sola apis excellit muscarum milia quinque.

Latin Holiday Songs. For the holiday season, instead of a Latin Fable of the Day, I'm posting a "holiday song of the day" at the eClassics ning. Today's holiday song is XII (Duodecim) Dies Natalis, a Latin translation of the 12 days of Christmas song!

Here is a lovely image of the 12 Days of Christmas done by "Paula" at the ukexpert website.
