Latin to English translations [PRO] Art/Literary - History
Latin term or phrase:pro potionibus sumendis more solito
This Latin phrase appears at the end of a sentence discussing medieval goliardic songs. My text is in Italian, but here's my English translation, complete with Latin ending:
An example is represented by the Bolognese "Carmina burana", written by wealthy students who were accustomed to ignoring their lessons at the beginning of each month **pro potionibus sumendis more solito**.
Unfortunately, my Latin is too rusty for me to be sure of the meaning!
