Medieval calendar jingle
In my research into medieval calendars, I came across this memory aid:
Alta Domat Dominus, Gratis Beat Equa Gerentes
Contemnit Fictos, Augebit Dona Fideli
Can anybody translate this?
The first letter of each word gives the Dominical Letter for the
month, ie. January = A, February = D, etc. I'm curious as to what it
There is an equivalent one in English: At Dover Dwell George Brown
Esquire, Good Christopher Finch And David Fryer. I don't know the
dates of either, unfortunately.
