  • 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!

All set up and moved to Solos!

Monaxi, does Pattymarie already have the link to this thread (since I might have just moved it out from under her)? If you haven't sent it to her yet, I will.

edited to add: Also, is this the translator? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Payne_Smith
I don't see him in the LV database, so I'll add him if this is right.

Hello, Pattymarie! Here's the first section: https://librivox.org/uploads/chocoholic/commentaryonlukesermons1thru11_01_cyrilofalexandria_128kb.mp3 23:47

Laurie Anne, I had some difficulty in uploading and am still not sure if the file is okay. In the uploader, the green +files button opens the wrong page on my computer. I had to copy the file from the actual list and paste it into the page forced by the uploader.

Thank you, both!
Peace be with you,
Sister

Hmm, that sounds odd. Let me know if it happens again. I haven't heard of any other trouble with the uploader recently, so hopefully it was a one-time thing.

Section 1 PL Notes

At 19:26 you've read "co-ordinant" instead of "co-ordinate." That might actually be passable at LV, but I think you'd prefer it be correct.

I'm mystified as to why the text has verse 1:52 as "He hath put down riders from their thrones,...." Why "riders" when my NIV has "rulers," and every other translation I can remember reading has "rulers," "princes," "the mighty" or some such which makes sense with thrones. I suspect someone among those who prepared the text made a mistake.

Hello, Pattymarie! Good catch! See how it sounds now.

As for "riders," you are correct. In another scanning of the text, the word is clearly "rulers."

In the next section, we find an unusual use of the word "turtle." I looked that up, and sure enough, it is possible that it actually meant turtle.

Thanks again!
Peace be with you,
Sister

Hello, Pattymarie! Here's section 02: https://librivox.org/uploads/chocoholic/commentaryonlukesermons1thru11_02_cyrilofalexandria_128kb.mp3 27:28 Thank you!

St Cyril's comments re childbirth are interesting. I wonder where he got his information, or was he making a comparison of which I am not aware.
Peace be with you,

Section 2 is PL OK.

I'm more bemused by his translation of what everyone else translates as "doves" or "turtledoves" as "turtles."
