The Great Commentary of Cornelius à Lapide (St. Matthew's Gospel, Chapters I - IV), by Cornelius à Lapide (1567 - 1637), translated by Thomas Wimberley Mossman (1826 - 1885)
Cornelius Cornelii a Lapide was born in Belgium. He became a priest in 1595 and taught philosophy, and Hebrew, while also preaching and administering the Sacraments. In 1616 he was moved to Rome in the same capacity. Towards the end of his life, he devoted himself exclusively to completing and correcting his commentaries, which covered almost every part of the Bible. The commentaries show a mastery of Hebrew, Greek, Latin, Syriac, and Arabic, in addition to a familiarity with the church fathers. His Latin commentaries stretched over 30 volumes and were the standard Catholic texts for understanding any part of scripture, until more modern times. (Summary by ancientchristian)

Just a note, I'm skipping the references in the text, e.g. (Conf. chap. xx., 3) or (See Life of St. Teresa.) They're somewhat onerous to figure out and I'm guessing they were added to the text by the translator/editor anyway.

Nice to see some chapters up already. :thumbs: Seems reasonable to skip the references.
Moving us to SOLO forum.

Thank goodness you are OK with skipping the references, this book is quite dense with them and mostly they are in Latin. Anyway, it's interesting material. Hopefully, I can finish it up by the end of the week.... maybe.

That's a wrap in terms of the initial read. Turns out I misestimated the number of sections. I only needed 20 out of the 30. I've posted an ad for a listener.

The intro begins with the Section name not the Section number
(2:10) the text says "when God is loved above all things", you read "when God is loved by all things"
(4:42) stumbled on the word "figure"
(6:09) added word "four"
(7:29) the text says "hear a few out of many", you read "hear a few out of them"
(7:37) mispronounced word "conflagration"
(10:10)the text says "whilst great and lofty intellects", you read "whilst great and lofty intellectuals"
(12:23) the text says "Elias", you read "Isaiah"
(12:53) the text says "dictate", you read "dedicate"
(16:59) mispronounced word "omnipotence"
(23:32) the text says "sectaries", you read "secretaries"

In terms of Section 1, I made all the changes except:

1) The intro begins with the Section name not the Section number (apparently you don't have to say the section number, it's optional. This came up before.)
2) (16:59) mispronounced word "omnipotence" (It matches what Google is telling me... here in Canada.)

Btw, thank you for all the fixes. They really do improve things.

Hi, Can I PL the next section? Possibly section 3 in case someone above me already selected the section 2 -10? I don't really get the number 10 after section 2, so I'm afraid I'll be PL a section that has been selected already. Thank you!

Thank you very much!
PL- Notes for Section 3 - On the Versions of the Gospels and on the Title Prefixed to St. Matthew's Gospel
This is my first PL work, so if there is anything that I got wrong, then please do tell!
(0:31) I'm not sure whether I should correct the mispronounced words but here is just an optional correction of the word "medici" the 'c' here doesn't seem to sound like 'k' if I'm not wrong.
(1:22) the original text 'a remarkable monument of antiquity', but I heard 'a remarkable monument to antiquity' instead.
(1:56) the word is 'cum grano' but I heard cum graneo.
(2:35) stumble word "a man"
(3:10) I think you missed the word 'Abba' as I only heard 'Salama' instead of 'Abba Salama'
(4:30) im not sure if you can call it stumble, but I heard a pause and added word 'with THE ...Niobe of old'. In addition, there is also a mispronounced word of 'Niobe'
(7:38) the word 'basar' is read as basorar here.
(8:10) correct me if I'm wrong, but this part I could only have heard it as writing writer instead of 'ready writer'
(8:56) I heard 'diction' instead of 'dictation'
(9:55) 'the title of the Syriac cogospel' instead of the title of the Syriac Gospel.
(12:03) 'weighty author', but I heard it as 'weight author'
(18: 28) stumble word 'Greek text'

There are a few extra words here and there but since they don't change any meaning of the context, I didn't note that down. Above all else, good work to you! And one more thing to add on, I'm not sure if this is appropriate to comment on, but I think you should at least got this part for future improvement. I have no problem with everything else besides the few unsure parts I've listed above, but during the time when I listened to your recording, I found that sometimes you read slowly or just normal according to your standard, and for some other parts you read a bit fast that I couldn't catch up (this happened because I was used to your slow reading until that fast part in the middle that unable me to catch up so suddenly), I'm not sure if this should be noted or not, but please take this as a grain of salt!. Also, those desynchronized parts are only for 1 to 2mn during the recording, it occurred here and there, so it should be fine.
