Q: How can I use my Latin to better understand how the earthquake impacted the DC National Cathedral?
A: The central tower over the crossing is called the Gloria in Excelsis Tower. You can read about the damage at this link http://www.nbcwashington.com/news/local/128317623.html Why would a church name its central crossing this name? What symbolism is at play here?
Here’s a Dr. Matteo CONTEST: Write a good translation of Gloria in Excelsis as a comment to this post. Do you know where that Latin comes from? I’ll close the contest Sunday 28 August at 12 noon — your prize will be a unique playing card deck!
