Latin Quiz

I'm really lousy at Latin, but then I've only been to a handful of Tridentine Masses, and we all know how much Latin there is in the Novus Ordo, don't we?

Here are two Latin quizzes. Don't worry, there's only ten questions on each, so no need to brush up first. I only scored 5/10 on the first and 6/10 on the second. Anyone who scores worse than me will be be subjected to the medieval penances. All ten of them.

9 / 10...but that's just because of my exposure to the classics not because I am any good at Latin.

Where do you find this stuff?

Simon-Peter said...

9 / 10 again...to think I got ante / anti meridian wrong hurrumph.

Not enough beer, that's the problem.

Good job, Simon. You are herbey spared the torture of the medieval penances! Go have some more beer!

Jeffrey Smith said...

You did well. The Latin Mass wouldn't help much on these questions. I got 8 and 9. Never took a Latin class but I've read a lot of Roman writers.

Simon-Peter said...

Two things: I can't find those pictures of your cars, and how come there is no link to Rorate Coeli on your fine, fine blog?

paramedicgirl said...

Simon, do you mean the cars in the SSPX Fairy Tale post? They are there. OK, OK, I'll add the link to Rorate's blog! Thanks for suggesting it.

Simon-Peter said...

right....duh!

Do you know Hilary White?

Dr. Bombay said...

8/10 on the first one and 5/10 on the second.

I'm a doctor. Not a Latinist.

Simon-Peter said...

You see, women do drive us to drink (more)! I cannot believe (John McEnroe voice) you put my blog up...I can't even...it's a work in progress.

Dr. Bombay, pick your penance. I scored one higher than you on the second quiz. You know the rules!!

Anita Moore said...

10/10. :-))))))))))))))))))))

paramedicgirl said...

10/10? I guess Anita gets to administer all the penances!

Anita Moore said...

I guess Anita gets to administer all the penances!

I must vow never to use this awesome power for evil purposes.

Shirley said...

Whew! Just escaped the penances; scored 6 and 7...made some dumb mistakes in retrospect.

Tracy said...

8/10 on both, woooo! Actually, I know very little Latin, but my four years of Spanish helped greatly; you'd be surprised how many of the words are almost the same.

Dr. Bombay said...

I refuse my penance! The second test was manufactured by Brits. Which means they're likely heretics.

Heretics are always trying to bring down good traddys.

paramedicgirl said...

You can't refuse your penance. Not allowed! Hey, we know a couple of pretty trad Brits, don't we? I wonder how they would do on the quiz?

Ryan said...

9/10 and 8/10. I'm slipping...

Catholic Fire said...

9/10 on the first one, but I attribute it to good guessing, as I took one year of Latin 43 years ago.

This was fun!

Simon-Peter said...

FYI: Anyone who evene intimates I am a "brit" will suffer the lash of my tongue. :-)~

"British" is an artificial political contstruct designed to eradicate the English.

Honi soit qui mal y pense.

I got 7/10 on the first and 9/10 on the second.
Not bad for an uneducated slob.
That was so fun! Thanks!
