Apology by Tertullian (155 - 240). Translated by Charles Dodgson (1800 - 1868)
In this work Tertullian defends Christianity, demanding legal toleration and that Christians be treated as all other sects of the Roman Empire. His most famous apologetic work, written in Carthage in the summer or autumn of AD 197. ( Wiki)
  1. Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/tertullian00tertgoog/page/n10/mode/2up
    .
  2. Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard
    .
    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).

    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!
    .

    Magic Window:



    BC Admin =
    =
  3. The reader will record the following at the beginning and end of each file:
    No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
    START of recording (Intro):
    • "Section [number] of Apology. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Say:
      "Apology, by Tertullian. Translated by Charles Dodgson. Part [number]"


    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Section [number] of Apology by Tertullian. Translated by Charles Dodgson. This LibriVox recording is in the Public Domain."
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Only if applicable, say:
      "Part [number]"
    END of recording:
    • At the end of the section, say:
      "End of Part [number]"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of Apology, by Tertullian. Translated by Charles Dodgson."

    There should be ~5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.
    .
  4. Example filename apology_##_tertullian_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. apology_01_tertullian_128kb.mp3)
    .
  5. Transfer of files (completed recordings)
    Please always post in this forum thread when you've sent a file. Also, post the length of the recording (file duration: mm:ss) together with the link.
    • Upload your file with the LibriVox Uploader: https://librivox.org/login/uploader

      (If you have trouble reading the image above, please message an admin)
    • You'll need to select the MC, which for this project is: maryannspiegel
    • When your upload is complete, you will receive a link - please post it in this thread.
    • If this doesn't work, or you have questions, please check our How To Send Your Recording wiki page.

I've decided to forgo the preface and divide the work into ten even sections. I liked this style when I was working on Augustine's psalms.

Section 1: Pg 34 start apology

Section 2: Pg 44 VI

Section 3: Pg 54 X

Section 4: Pg 64 XV

Section 5: Pg 74 XX

Section 6: Pg 86 XXIII

Section 7: Pg 97 XXVI

Section 8: Pg 107 XXXVI

Section 9: Pg 117 XLI

Section 10: Pg 128 XLVIII - Ends page 136

dronald,

I'd be happy to MC this for you. I'll get your MW set up.

Will you be reading the notes as well?

OK.

Your MW is set up.

For a solo project, you are the Book Coordinator. That means you fill out the Magic Window and post your links and times in the window when you upload your files.

You'll need to start by logging into the magic window. Instructions are in the BC How-to; and this is a more detailed version of the First Login instructions (with pictures!) Please be sure to read all of the BC How To document, as that will give you more information on your role as a BC.
Note that passwords for the magic window and the forum are not connected. You can use the same password in both places (I think a lot of people do), but if you change it on one system, it won't affect the password on the other system.

Next, you'll need to start entering section titles. The breakdown you posted in the thread is fine for section titles.

Then you are ready to start recording. When you upload a section, it's your responsibility to add the link and duration (mm:ss) to the Magic Window. Link from the uploader goes in the "listen URL" column, duration goes in the "notes" column. Then be sure to post in the thread that a new section is ready for PL so your DPL knows there is something new.

We won't worry about a DPL just yet - folks often see new projects and volunteer to listen before anything is posted. If no one sees this, we will advertise once you have a section or two ready to listen to.

If you have questions, or if you have any trouble with the instructions in the BC how to, please post and we'll work through it together. There is a bit of a learning curve when you do your first solo.

I've modified your intros and outros a bit. Since you are reading a range of "parts" (or whatever they are called) in each section, I'd start the actual reading by saying the name of the first part you are reading, and at the end of the recording, say "end of ...." and the number of the last part you read. Unless you want to, I don't see a reason why you need to say the range of parts in each section in the intro, but the range should be in the section title in the MW.

Would it be alright to just say what section (1,2,3, etc.) And ignore the Roman numerals in my intro and outro?

So: "Section 1 of the apology of Tertullian" "End of section 1." I could do that for each section for ten sections total if that's alright?

That's fine.

Would you be reading the roman numerals as you move from part to part within each section? If yes, then I'd say at the beginning and end where you started and finished. But if you are skipping those entirely, then yes, skip them in the intro and outro as well.

Thanks, yeah. I was planning on ignoring them and I posted them just as a reference point.

I'll be happy to DPL. (I'm spending tomorrow catching up on all my PL assignments. I'm confident I can take this on.)
Sunday is a good PL day for me.

Sections 1 and 2. Fine readings, but you end with "Part 1" and "Part 2," when I thought it was agreed to say "Section 1" and "Section 2."
Sunday is a good PL day for me.
