Latin Tuesday

Today’s Latin Tuesday lesson courtesy of David Wilezol:

From Tertullan, Ad Martyras, 6:

Quot a latronibus ferro, ab hostibus etiam cruce extincti sunt, torti prius, immo et omni contumelia expuncti!

How many, I tell you, have suffered at the hands of enemies death on a cross, after having been tortured first, yes, and treated with every sort of contumely!

*contumely — insulting language or treatment

Latin Tuesday

Today’s Latin Tuesday lesson via David Wilezol concerning the origin and nature of the Crusades:

Balderic of Dol’s account of Pope Urban II’s Speech at Clermont, 1095:

Audivimus et audivistis, carissimi, quod non possumus meminisse sine lacrimis: dolore multo supplicoque fratres Christianes, membros Christos, Hierosolimae et Antiochae et ceteris urbibus orientalibus, flagellatos, oppressos, vulneratos esse. 

“We have heard, most beloved brethren, and you have heard what we cannot recount without tears how, with great hurt and dire sufferings our Christian brothers, members in Christ, are scourged, oppressed, and injured in Jerusalem, in Antioch, and the other cities of the East.”

Bill Bennett’s Recommended Reading List for Education in Conservatism

1.“The Tragedy of American Compassion” by Marvin Olasky. A brilliant history of the welfare state and how we let government services substitute for true compassion.

2. “Drawing Life” by David Gelernter. A Yale computer genius and conservative professor, David Gelernter reflects on modern life and his injury at the hands of the Unabomber.

3. “Amusing Ourselves to Death” by Neil Postman. Postman argues that America’s downfall won’t be at the hands of a “1984” state but a coddling, distraction-filled society.

4. “Sexual Suicide” by George Gilder. The first and still best account of why men and women are not interchangeable.

5. “The Wealth and Poverty of Nations” by David Landes. A large, detailed book of the history of the world and how it works that rebuts many liberal theories of world history.

6. “Hitch-22” by Christopher Hitchens. A brilliant autobiography by an atheist and intellectual that exposes many of the flaws of leftist ideology.
