BESTIARIA LATINA BLOG - Latin Via Fables - Zoo - Legenda
The following is a list of the different types of stories available in the Legenda section of the website - there are stories from the Physiologus and other Latin bestiaries, along with Aesopic fables in verse and prose, plus other animal stories taken from various medieval Latin sources. If you are looking for a story about a particular animal, or animal proverbs, visit the Zoo!
There is an audio CD available for download from lulu.com which contains thirty of the stories read out loud. Listening to audio is a great way to practice your Latin, and also to learn about Latin poetry.
In addition, there are some stories here at the website which have audio available. So where you see the play icon or the CD icon , that means audio is available for a particular story, either here at the website or on the CD.
