Hello!

There are a total of 82 Epistles of Cyprian, but it's not as daunting as it may seem at first. Some of his Epistles (or letters) here are only a page or two long. Some even a paragraph or so. So for anyone who's interested in PL, it's not as crazy as it may look at first!

I also think that reading "The Life and Passion of Cyprian, Bishop and Martyr" by Pontius the Deacon as the preface would serve well for a project such as this. The translator put Pontius's work before the letters, and it is usually listed with Cyprian's works. "Pontius the Deacon" was a Deacon who served under Cyprian and was even present during his martyrdom. It also gives account of what would later be called the "Cyprian plague" after Cyprian who wrote about it in detail.

I'm pondering whether I should read each "Argument" that seems to be a summary of what Cyprian wrote about. I like the idea of reading straight from Cyprian without a summary from someone 1800 years later. I honestly can't decide if I should read that portion or not so I am open to suggestions. On one hand, it's what the translator put there and it could be helpful, but on the other hand, I like going straight to the words of the original author. Thoughts?

Hi Donald,
I will MC this for you. Usually we want to read the text as it is so I think the arguments would be included.
I'll leave you here for a bit for a potential proof listener to find you.
Thanks,
Amy

Great, thank you.

I was hoping someone would come along and say I have to do it because I couldn't decide.

Hi Donald,
I'll move you to Going Solo. If a proof listener doesn't come along, we can advertise for one.
Have a good night!

Thank you! This should be lots of fun.

I have the Preface by Pontius the Deacon ready for PL as well as Epistle 42 so far. I don't think I'll always do everything chronologically, only because it will be nice to knock down one or two short letters when I have time to do so.

I have a brand new microphone so I hope you like the new sound!

I noticed Cyprian was already in the catalogue before I started this, simply named "Cyprian".

I notice with others however (Saint Augustine of Hippo, Origen of Alexandria, etc) the longer version of their name is used.

Should this be the case for Saint Cyprian of Carthage?

Thank you! Section 26 is up for PL as well.

I have a question about Librivox etiquette that's been on my mind. For works such as this, where the sections may only be a few minutes, would you prefer that I post every time there's an update or will you just check the MW?

I may have streaks where I post 1-3 sections a day, but there will be days when I may post none. However I don't know if you'd like me constantly bumping the forum to let you know or if it's implied that I'll be updating as I go along.

I don't know if it seems rude if I post a section and bump the forum, and then post another section later that day and bump the forum again? How do people usually go about this here?

It's really up to you however you would like to do it. I am happy for you to do either. I check all my allocated threads everyday anyway so whatever is easiest for you. Maybe when you upload the last on of that day just put a post in the thread that there are more to PL thanks
