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
