Round-Up: December 29

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). You can keep up with the latest posts by using the RSS feed, or you can subscribe by email. In conjunction with the Vulgate Verses book, I've posted about the Latin Bible phrase Num custos fratris mei sum, the words spoken by Cain to God when questioned about Abel's whereabouts. You can read here about some of the extra-Biblical legends about Cain and Abel, including the version of this story found in the Koran. 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 a great saying about teaching and learning: Bis discit qui docet. In fact, you could say that this saying explains the main reason why I publish these blogs! :-) For your numerical amusement - Roman Sudoku. Yes, it's Sudoku played with Roman numerals: enjoy! You can visit the blog for a larger version, easier to print out and play. Here's a small image of the puzzle:
