Hi there

Thanks for reviving this forum, and for the opportunity of sharing thoughts and asking questions.

I wanted to ask something to anybody who may know; I'm interested in the origins of the phrase that appears as the subject of this topic. The only references I have been able to find were limited mentions to it in the Internet and an attribution to St. Jerome, without sources.

Does anybody know where it comes from? Was it later used "correctly" when giving way to "traduttore-traditore"? What are the connotations of the Latin words when used in the original quote and context?

Any hint appreciated.

Best regards,

Andrés

Will try Phi Jun 29, 2004

I don't know off-hand where it comes from, but I'll fire it at my Phi cd tonight and see if that produces the phrase. The beauty of Latin is that, due to the comparative lack of it, these searches take much less time than for Greek.
