Review 1 for Dictionary of Ecclesiastical Latin
Date:June 10, 2008
A must-have book for one's home library of Christian resources, and just an excellent handbook for every studious layperson. The appendix offers a good base of knowledge for those of the Catholic liturgical tradition for understanding the words, phrases, and concepts used in the papal writings. Also, a practical dictionary for those learning the Latin language at any level of study. A great gift for the seminary-bound student!
