RES GESTAE TRANSLATION & ROMAN CALENDAR
- Two excellent pieces of work that is being shared with the Nova Roma community.
Senator C. Claudius Quadratus has put together two excellent pieces of work that is being shared with the Nova Roma community.
The yearly 12 monthly calendar contains information regarding festivals and events that took place on each date. In addition there is a list of emperors, dictators and usurpers, family trees, and an outline of the history of ancient Rome from the founding of the city through the death of Justinian.
His translation and vocabulary study of the 'Res Gestae' has three iterations of each section in various styles including one wherein long vowels are indicated with apices, words of more than two syllables have their accented syllables in bold type and all numbers and abbreviations are written out. The objective was to permit a smooth recitation of the the text with proper pronunciation and without having to pause at every number or consider the grammar of every abbreviation. Each section is followed by its pertinent vocabulary and there is a cumulative vocabulary after the final section indicating all of the sections in which each word appears.
- Email him at your leisure to obtain a copy of either of these pieces he offers freely: firstname.lastname@example.org
