You might know that I am an admirer of Israel (in many senses, specially because maybe all my time is used for mirare ad one of his daughters). But not be afraid! To be emebelessed with the ideation of follow the Mossaic Law just has shown me earlier the via Crucis. I am shinningly impressioned by the respect I must have towards the Holy See. I see well that I must adopt her historic life and it is so such as because I admire the jewish ethos rewarding Hebrew that I do this question.
I know the historic datum: After take Georgia, Armenia and Ethiopia the Church took the heart of Rome - this is incredible, first it was taken the heart of Japhet (Aryans used to live at Caucasus, aren't them Caucasians?), second it was taken the heart of Ham (Ethiopia) when will be pursuit take the heart of the fleshful Semites - but that is a different thread - I know that Rome was the maxime conquest of the Holy Church - the question of Pilatos: What is truth? was finally responsed.
You see: I am student at History BA and I am specially linked at my heart to make this kind of archeologics
My question is not about data but about the life that beats behind them. What is the charisma that Latin shows?
For example:I know that Jews speak Hebrew since Moses spread it among them but that which is to me interesting is the fact that v gr Hebrews terms for property don't affect the object - such as in latin I say: Ego sum servum Dei (of Deus) - and they are neither an independent term - such as in English I say I am citizen of the United States. In Hebrew it is said: I am bat mitzvah - I am a daughter of THE Commandement - and the affected thing is not the object - mitzvah - but the subject - bat means no "daugther" but "daughter" of. This is indeed eloquent on the issue that we must gave ourselves to the Sacred Heart of Christ (or in the Jewish case, to the Mossaic Law), Hebrews says it well because in Hebrew the very real word representing the subject is affected by the genitive case) Using aristotelic term: I am not seeking the efficent cause (the Church conquered Rome and Rome conquered the Church) I am seeking the formal cause: Why is the spirit that beats under to have chosen Latin as the language par excellence of the Western Catholic Church?
I think the explanation that follows: Romans were the masters of the Laws. Such grey as the stone of their building their heart was grey. They were THE obeyding people - who were awarded with the Largest Empire - not as their more hurried brothers - the Greeks. Even this lead them by perverted vias - like the love to coitus more ferarum - they finally accepted to offer their heart to the Holy Spirit - while most of the children of Israel didn't.
But I think that this is the way of think of an individualistic man... and regarding to the facts of civilisation it can be said that what Aristotle said: When a man habits without someone else so he is a God (an angel maybe) or he is a beast... I suspect that I could be a beast.
I wanna your answers on this topic
A final question: I have not any book about Ecclesiastic Latin, is one about Classic Latin okey?
