Round-Up: December 7

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).

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 7. 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 the "razor's edge" in Latin: In acie novaculae consistit.

Latin Holiday Songs. For the holiday season, instead of a Latin Fable of the Day, I'll be posting a "holiday song of the day" at the eClassics ning. Today's holiday song is Angeli Canunt Praecones, a Latin translation (actually, two different Latin translations!) of the English carol, "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing."

Here is a medieval illustration of the annuncitation to the shepherds.
