Round-Up: April 16

Here is a round-up of today's 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. Proverbs: Here is the audio for 10 more Latin proverbs from Latin Via 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 nice saying about great men and humble origins: Potest ex casa vir magnus exire.

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 28, which includes the famous verse about all things being possible with God - Pater, omnia possibilia tibi sunt.

Greek Via Fables: Here's the latest from the Greek fables of Syntipas. Today's fable is Κύων καὶ χαλκεῖς, The Dog and the Blacksmiths, a story about a dog able to sleep through anything, but who immediately comes running at the sound of food!

For an image today, I'll let the Roman Emperor of the Week widget supply us a portrait of this week's ruler!
