What is Hope... and..Perseverance in latin?
Not like an online translation, but with grammar and tense. Masculine noun.
- 10 years ago
"spes" meaning: Hope. Feminine. Fifth declension.
Perseverance is tricky, "to persevere" as a verb, comes from the verb "servare" to hold or keep, with a prefix added to it 'per-', to intensify the meaning. "perservare" means "to preserve".
Romans would likely have used another word, like "victoria" (victory) or said something about 'standing strong' despite bad odds etc.
