A translation of unsubtitled Latin, some of which quite naughty, spoken by the Roman soldiers who scourge Jesus.

…and a video I made with minimal effort at 3am one night now has half a million views. Life is full of these little ironies.

NB: My translation is probably riddled with small mistakes, but the gist is there. I haven’t set foot inside a Latin classroom in a decade, and back in the day learned Classical Latin. The Romans in The Passion speak Vulgar (medieval) Latin with an ecclesiastical pronunciation… in Classical Latin, “v” is pronounced “w,” “ch” as a hard “k” and so on… so their diction was hard to catch at times. I urge you Latin scholars with suggestions to leave them for me in the comments.
