Translation in progress of Hrabanus Maurus commentary on Judith

Brian Glass has written to tell me that he is working on a translation of the commentary on Judith by 9th century Latin writer Hrabanus Maurus.  This writer is later than the scope of this blog; but I heartily approve of the project, which he is doing through a series of posts on his blog, all tagged, here.  The translation is in progress as a Google Document here.

Brian wanted to translate something for which no English translation existed, which he was interested in anyway.  This is a fine way to do so, and to polish language skills.  There are plenty of such texts around; and even if the translations are not finished, whatever is done is useful, so long as it appears online.

I’m sure that we all wish Brian Glass the best of luck with his project.
