The Sky is My Sanctum
by Marc C
Greetings from England!
I've just recently gained my Private Pilots License and because I love flying so much I came up with my own phrase.
The phrase is: "The Sky is My Sanctum". I believe the translation is "Divum est meus Templum".
Is this translation correct and how would is it pronounced?
Also, could there be any other variation to this phrase?
Thank you very much for your time.
Congrats on your pilot license and on your Latin, too. Your Latin phrase is basically correct, but the adjective my
must agree with the neuter temple
So: Divum est meum templum
A more common word for sky is caelum
. So, also: Caelum est meum templum
Another variation, whether you choose caelum
, is to use the pronoun mihi
instead of the adjective meum
. Divum est templum mihi
means The sky is a temple to me
I think mihi
is better Latin than meum
Hope this helps, and thanks for asking a Latin teacher.
P.S. You can start learning Latin now with Rosetta Stone!
