Notae Latinae (Latin Notes)

March 21st, 2019

We have received a few inquiries about the Latin words on the banner near the school entrance: vera, iusta, pudica, sancta, and amabilia. They were taken from Philippians 4:8 as found in the Vulgate, a late 4th-century Latin translation of the Bible. That verse appears on our website, our marketing materials, and one of our Trinitas t-shirts!

De caetero fratres, quaecumque sunt vera, quaecumque pudica, quaecumque iusta, quaecumque sancta, quaecumque amabilia, quaecumque bonae famae, siqua virtus, siqua laus disciplinae, haec cogitate.

“Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”
