Round-Up: December 17

Here is a round-up of today's Bestiaria Latina blog posts (plus there is a page listing previous round-ups at the Bestiaria Latina Blog archives). You can keep up with the latest posts but using the RSS feed in a feedreader (e.g. Bloglines), or you can subscribe by email.

Vulgate Verses. The Vulgate Verses book is now available (from Lulu Publishers), and I'm adding Study Guides at the Vulgate Verses blog. The Study Guide I've added today is for Group 11. 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 little saying about sleeping cats: Dum stertit cattus, numquam sibi currit in os mus.

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 Gaudete, "Rejoice," a 16th-century Latin carol that became a hit single in the 1970s for the band Steeleye Span.

Meanwhile, here is a medieval image of the Madonna and Child.
