#52644 - 01/13/02 10:06 PM Latin motto
The student representative body at my medical school (of which I have to admit to being overly involved) is currently undergoing a transition period of sorts. The committee has decided we need a motto, and a Latin one at that. The job description is something short, sharp and shiny which encapsulates ideals of tradition, community/fellowship, and something quasi-medical such as caring. My preference was for a short sentence, but the majority of the committee prefers three words which cover, however tenuously, the sort of ideals mentioned above.
So, any ideas? Something original would be best, and I don't mind whether it takes the form of individual words or a phrase. Just out of interest, the University motto (or whatever the proper term) is sub cruce lumen, and I'll offer bonus points if you can link that in as well.

Dear doc comfort: I don't know enough Latin, but how about adding to the University motto the Latin for "Under the Light, Healing"?

... and something about golf
#52647 - 01/14/02 08:07 PM Re: Latin motto
But is it really golf? or could it be a rabbit or a beetle?
#52648 - 01/15/02 05:43 AM Re: Latin motto
Under the Light, Healing
Which would come out something like, sub lumine, sanare.

Sub lumine crucis sanare (Thanks, Faldage)
#52650 - 01/15/02 12:43 PM Re: Latin motto
sub lumine crucis sanare
would be "under the light of the cross, healing".
#52651 - 01/15/02 12:55 PM Re: Latin motto
Dear Faldage: Since doc comfort would prefer a three word motto, would simply
"Lumine crucis sanare" be acceptable?
#52652 - 01/15/02 01:29 PM Re: Latin motto
lumine crucis sanare
Sounds like we're treading on the territory of the ablative of means giving us, "healing by (means of) the light of the cross". Makes it sound like we're geting into Christian Science or Seventh Day Adventist.
