Brot und Spiele!

It would be nice to have such a meeting. As to where and when, I await further reactions.

contemporary Chinese name for Rome

Salvete omnes! I searched for the information that was given by mi Mari, but alas I could not find Li-jien (supposedly the ancient chinese translation of Rome) or any reference to that warlord, Yun Shen. I also searched in my historical atlas for a town called Li Jien, but without the characters,...

Salve, mi Mari et alii I must say that I share in Marius' scepticism. But I will adress it from the Chinese point of view, since their presence was spoken of as well. Like Marius, I find it hard to believe that, when artifacts are found, the assumption that whoever made them, must have been t...

Salve Aelia, Thanks for your opninion on the book. I have read it in the meantime, while I was supposedly studying in the library :roll: ... I, too, liked the book, for it was easygoing and hard to put aside. I don't know if I have said it before, so... a late welcome to the Societas! But I a...

And let me add that I too believe Chinese sounds awkward to an non speaker. Japanese sounds so much better, doesn't it? After all, it is a differently constructed language... But when you begin to understand a little, it can be fun. Or frustrating :wink: Mainly so when it comes to imported DVD...

Salvete iteum, Tergeste et alii Concerning your question about the Taiwanese writing system, I might have some thoughts to share with you, Tergeste. It is a complex history. In that way that, for starters, there have been and still are numerous indigenous dialects (wheather we should speak of ...

salvete iterum, amici I voted for another language... and I don't think there can be doubt about which one. Classical Chinese, indeed. Although there are texts which are horrible to read, the language itself is rich and varied. And, as one other positive point, it is one of the few classical lang...

Salvete Belgae

Is Mus wel eens NIET aanwezig in de ploeg? :wink: Ik zal ook eens langskomen, indien het vele vertalingswerk waar men mij nu reeds mee lastig valt, dat toelaat.

Ik groet u allen met gepaste eerbied,

Salvete iterum, mi Orce An idea that might lead to more participants. What if we focussed on one particular object or God that is worshipped in many cultures? If we could compare some views, that would also be a good thing for this project, nonne? As an example, I give a very obvious one: the ...

Salvete mi Orce I am familiar with Geoffrey of Monmouth. However, I have not (yet) read his Histories. I sometimes find it amusing how King Arthur, himself being a controversy, is linked with ancient Greece and/or Roma. There are people who link him to Aeneas, other people link him to a member...
