Classical vs. Ecclesiastical Latin
#1


OK, what gives? I just can't buy the idea that my Roman ancestors pronounced Latin in the classical way. Why do some (most? all?) Latin scholars think they did? Where'd the idea come from? Any of you Latin scholars out there buy it?

Pronouncing Latin as one would pronounce Italian (the ecclesiastical way) makes more sense to me and is much more beautiful.
