"Ubi sunt ludi?"

Translation:Where are the schools?

September 28, 2019



This is really a poor choice for "school," would not "schola" be a more logical choice? Ludus/ludi refer to games (ludi Olympiae, ludi Consualia, ludi Cerialia) or exercise schools - such as the gladiatorial ludi.


Ludus is game and a school for young children, schola is a school for teenagers (more than 12 y.o) and adults.
