Carpe diem

topic

A sundial inscribed carpe diem Carpe diem is a Latin aphorism , usually translated "seize the day", taken from book 1 of the Roman poet Horace 's work Odes (23 BC). Translation Carpe is the second-person singular present active imperative of carpō "pick or pluck" used by Horace to mean "enjoy, seize, use, make use of". Diem is the accusative of dies "day". A more literal translation of " carpe diem " would thus be "pluck the day [as it is ripe]"—that is, enjoy the moment. History Sources Text from Odes 1.11 : Tu ne quaesieris, scire nefas, quem mihi, quem tibi finem di dederint, Leuconoe, nec Babylonios temptaris numeros. ut melius, quidquid erit, pati. seu pluris hiemes seu tribuit Iuppiter ultimam, quae nunc oppositis debilitat pumicibus mare Tyrrhenum. Sapias, vina liques et spatio brevi spem longam reseces. dum loquimur, fugerit invida aetas: carpe diem , quam minimum credula postero.

Leo Bible

topic

The Leo Bible (Rome, Vatican, Bib. Apostolica, MS. Reg. gr. 1) is a Byzantine illuminated manuscript dated to the mid 10th century, making it one of the earliest surviving Byzantine Bibles . Though only one volume survives, a preface and an intact contents page tell us that the Bible originally contained both the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament . Due to its association with the Macedonian Renaissance it is often grouped along with the stylistically similar Paris Psalter and Joshua Roll . Appearance The size of the Bible (410mm-270mm) is unusually large. It contains books Genesis through Psalms prefaced by 18 full-page miniatures rendered in a colorful, ‘painterly’ fashion that were inserted on separate leaves, suggesting that they were perhaps added after the initial completion of the text. The miniatures are rendered largely in figural and architectural forms that reflect the Macedonian Renaissance’s interest in classicism. However, the visual content as well as the verse inscriptions, presumed to ...more...
