How to use this resource

Through the link below, we provide access to a list that has two content columns and one link column. The content column on the left provides the Latin term, while the next content column gives an English translation.

The information link creates a pop-up that gives further information about the vocabulary term, one or more excerpts that contain that term and for each primary source containing the excerpt.

The list is paginated, initially in blocks of ten items, with a display at the bottom indicating which items are being displayed the block (i.e., page) being displayed and the block size. One can proceed to the next block of ten by selecting the right-pointing arrowhead, and similarly to the previous block by selecting the left-pointing arrowhead.

One can go to a specific block by entering a number in the box immediately to the right of "Page".

Finally, one can change the block size by entering a number in the box to the right of "Display".
