Reviews - What do customers think about Dictionary of Ecclesiastical Latin?

Excellent  Aug 20, 2008
First a little background of where I stand: I learned Latin using Collins Ecclesiastical Latin, with the sole purpose to be able to pray the Liturgia Horarum in Latin. After having finished studying from the Collins text, I found I still didn't know a whole lot of words from the Office text. So I bought Dictionary of Ecclesiastical Latin.

I can say that this book has proven to be a "must have" while praying the Office. It has not disappointed me at all, and I don't know how I could manage praying the Office without it.

For those of you in my boat, this book is well worth the purchase.
 
A Nifty little resource for studying my Latin Bible  Aug 1, 2007
This is a superb dictionary for anyone wishing to read the Bible in Latin. One does not need to be familiar with Latin to use this dictionary. And no need to refer to a classical dictionary. It is based on the Oxford Edition of the New Testament where it does not seem to miss a word. I have also used it with other editions of the Latin Bible. I use it to read Church documents at the Lambeth Palace library. I also use another more general Collins dictionary but only to refer to occasionally as most of the words can be found in this dictionary.
If you are studying the Latin Bible the dictionary being smaller saves time. If you are studying the Latin language then it not suitable.
 
Just a warning.  Jun 16, 2007
The entries in this dictionary do not indicate long and short vowels: no macrons. Syllable stress is indicated by diacritic marks.

This may be the best or only Ecclesiastical dictionary on the market, but someone should write a new one with macrons. They are essential to pronunciation and syllable-emphasis understanding in Eccl. Latin education. By association, syllable emphasis decided the complex, beautiful inflectional system of Latin. And so macrons, whether disregarded or not, are essential to the presentation of the Latin language. Both this dictionary and TAN's "Latin Grammar" represent ignorance in language-acquisition by reducing Latin's rule-bound syllable-emphasis system based on a dual-vowel system to a mere diacritical mark above 'stressed vowel' which is to be memorized in a arbitrary manner. What ignorance. It's a real language!

But what the TAN book lacks in grammatical explanation and pronunciation, it makes up in zeal and piety, something "Primer of Ecclesiastical Latin" lacks from the get-go. I'd rather memorize diacritics in ignorance than ponder the mistake of a Latin Rite seperated from Latin.
 
Ecclesiastical latin  Jan 9, 2007
I use this almost every day and find it exactly what I was looking for.
 
It's OK...for a dead form of communication  Oct 29, 2006
If you enjoy research, reading the early fathers' sermons, keeping up with your Latin,or simply and old time Catholic that is more than ready for the Holy Father to allow a Latin Mass you need this dictionary. The missal is sure not going to tell you what the word means and even "Hail Holy Queen" looses something in translation. It is an adequate resource but for the money it is a great resource.
