We apologize for this inconvenience. Your IP address has been automatically blocked from accessing the Project Gutenberg website, www. This is because the geoIP database shows your address is in the country of Germany. Blocked at germany.
A Court in Germany ordered that access to certain items in the Project Gutenberg collection are blocked from Germany. Project Gutenberg believes the Court has no jurisdiction over the matter, but until the issue is resolved, it will comply. For more information about the German court case, and the reason for blocking all of Germany rather than single items, visit PGLAF's information page about the German lawsuit.
All IP addresses in Germany are blocked. This block will remain in place until legal guidance changes. Project Gutenberg updates its listing of IP addresses approximately monthly. Occasionally, the website mis-applies a block from a previous visitor. If your IP address is shown by Maxmind to be outside of Germany and you were momentarily blocked, another issue is that some Web browsers erroneously cache the block.
Trying a different Web browser might help. Or, clearing the history of your visits to the site. Please email the diagnostic information above to help pglaf. The software we use sometimes flags "false positives" -- that is, blocks that should not have occurred. Apologies if this happened, because human users outside of Germany who are making use of the eBooks or other site features should almost never be blocked.

On discovering, therefore, that his daughter Danae had given birth to a son, Acrisius endeavored to escape his fate by setting both mother and child adrift on the sea. They were saved, however, by the help of Jupiter; and Perseus, the child, grew up at the court of Polydectes, king of Seriphos, an island in the Aegean Sea. On reaching manhood, Perseus was sent by Polydectes to fetch the head of Medusa, one of the Gorgons. This dangerous task he accomplished with the help of Apollo and Minerva, and on his way home he rescued Andromeda, daughter of Cepheus, from a sea-monster. Perseus then married Andromeda, and lived some time in the country of Cepheus. At length he returned to Seriphos, and turned Polydectes to stone by showing him the Gorgon's head; he then went to the court of Acrisius, who fled in terror at the news of his grandson's return. The oracle was duly fulfilled, for Acrisius was accidentally killed by a quoit thrown by Perseus.
Fabulae Faciles: Perseus 1-11
Students emerging from a year or two of elementary Latin grammar often feel overwhelmed by the real Latin authors that mark the transition to intermediate Latin. I have used these stories for years for my own college-level Latin students as independent study materials over the summer which typically separates elementary and intermediate Latin. In this class, I cover the first reader in the Fabulae Faciles , by providing audio files, guided study, supplementary materials, and, more important, a constant and consistent presence as you work you way through the passages. Search for anything.

I really like your site. First I like the webpage design- makes me feel as if I'm in the library and not wasting more timeon the net. Next I have to say I'm surprised and delighted to find these translations. I was given "Fabulae Faciles" as a present by my Latin teacher about45 years ago and have rarely looked at it since. I've recently started working on Virgil's Aeneid and got this off my bookshelf for a bit of reminiscence and light relief. After all these years the vocabs's starting to come back and the grammar it seems is still fairly intact. I'd like to ask you aboutsection 4 0f the Perseus story: It says"Primum ad Graeas,Medusa sorores,pervenit.
