This blog is the home of materials for Laura Gibbs’s forthcoming book, Scala Sapientiae: Latin Vocabulary Through Proverbs, which will be available from Lulu Press in August. Here at the blog you can find the preliminary materials from the book, published day by day during the summer.
For each proverb, you can find at least one word connecting it to the previous proverb, and also at least one word connecting it to the next proverb.
For each new proverb there is no more than one word of new vocabulary which you will find listed in brackets, along with some notes - but remember that there are 25 basic words you need to be familiar with first (basic pronouns, prepositions and conjunctions) before you get started.
