No need to fish for the meaning of Desinit in piscem mulier formosa superne, we've got it here. Don't be a loser, learn about Gloria victis! And perish the thought you should die without ever learning what Qualis artifex pereo means.
Ita est time for us to explain the Latin jokes in Asterix and the Magic Carpet. Everyone with a head needs to know the meaning of Quot capita, tot sensus, and if you're ever sick you'll benefit from Contraria contrariis curantur. And don't be paranoid, you vulgaris Celtic fans, because Sic transit gloria mundi probably isn't about you.
A bumper set of translations in this episode, including magnum opus and petra oleum. Also, Professor Ibrox explains how a Trireme got its name. But mostly the focus is on Ave atque vale andNon omnia possumus omnes.
If you want someone to explain terra firma you're on solid ground, and we'll also tell what aqua vitae is (if you buy us a drink). You're probably much more interesting in learning what Nunc dimittis is all about - don't leave before we've told you.
Not everyone can translate Non licet omnibus adire corinthum, but Professor Ibrox can! And why does a legionary say moriturus te saluto instead of the well-known phrase? We'll tell you everything you need to know about the Latin in Asterix in Belgium, where the hills are alive with the sound of oppida...
You LOVE Obelix and Co., even though there are some jokes you don't get. Use our help to understand uti, non abuti, be one of thousands who know what albo notamba lapillo means, take a piece of our si vis pacem knowledge, and pay attention to the true translation of Redde caesari quae sunt caesaris.
There's only one way to decide which is the best Asterix book - a series of head-to-head matches where only the strongest survive. Comics continue to defeat each other until there is only one left standing. THIS IS the World Cup of Asterix. Who should win? Who WILL win? Join us!
