Latin Phrase: Made by God
Dear Latin Teacher,
Can you help me figure out the Latin phrase for "God Made" or "Built by God"? I thought it would be something like Deus Fecit
, but that doesn't sound cool. I want something that sounds cool.
Your Latin is pretty good! Congratulations!Deus fecit
does mean God made
. Other possibilities follow:a Domino factum
= made by GodDominus fecit
= God has made or God has done
To quote the Vulgate Bible:Deus fecit duo magna luminariaGod made the sun and moonfaciamus hominem ad imaginem et similitudinem nostramLet Us make a man in Our image and likeness
Another verb is also often used: creareEt creavit Deus hominem ad imaginem suamAnd God made man in his own image
With a twist from classical Latin (and therefore with the lower case 'd') Vergil has a famous line from his eclogues. It means a god has made these leisures for me:deus nobis haec otia fecit
Hope this helps, and write again when you have more questions only a Latin teacher can answer.
