Hi all, I am hoping someone can help me out I have obtained some years ago a diploma at a university but it is in Latin. My latin and google's is a bit rusty ( understatement ;-) ) so I am hoping if anyone here can help me ( and all other from the same uni) translate this to English that makes some sense :X

Lectori Salutem,

Sapienti consilio a maioribus institutum est, ut bonarum artium studiosi academicis rite peractis studiis honorificum peterent industriae et eruditionis testimonium. Quam ob rem cum ornatissima

(my name)

legibus academicis satis fecisset atque ad summos honores iam contenderet ipsius eruditioni debitos, Nos, quo causam honestissimam adiuvaremus, cum de eius in medicina progressibus quaestionem instituimus, tum audivimus eam defendentem disputationem

(title of my thesis)

in quibus omnibus cum sese talem praestitisset, ut Nobis doctrinam et dilligentiam suas probaret, honorificum quod petebat testimonium ei tribuimus. Quapropter nos pro potestate nobis concessa eandem

(my name)

doctorem sollemni modo rituque creavimus et renuntiavimus et ei concessimus quidquid iuris et honoris legitime creato doctori vel lege vel consuetudine inter homines doctos tribui solet. Cuius rei ut firma sit et testata fides, diploma hoc manu rectoris magnifici atque promotoris subscriptum et maiore Universitatis sigillo confirmatum ei tradendum curavimus.

What sort of diploma is it, for example AB, BSE, PHD, MA, OM or what?
They're all different

@Romeo Fabulini,
It is a PhD diploma at a Dutch university. I moved to Brasil but it has proven difficult to find a translator Sad

Tell us the name of the university so we can narrow down the search, or is it a secret?..Smile

@Aktaeon,
I'll give it a try. Life's a bit hectic right now, so I'll have to do it a bit at a time.

Lectori Salutem,
Geetings to the reader,

Sapienti consilio a maioribus institutum est,
It has been established by the wise policy of the elders,

ut bonarum artium studiosi academicis rite peractis studiis

that students of the liberal arts, having duly completed their academic studies,

honorificum peterent industriae et eruditionis testimonium.

seek honorable testimony of their research and diligence.

OK, I finally have had some time to work on this. Here's what I've got.

Lectori Salutem,
Geetings to the reader,

Sapienti consilio a maioribus institutum est,
It has been established by the wise policy of the elders,

ut bonarum artium studiosi academicis rite peractis studiis
that students of the liberal arts, having duly completed their academic studies,

honorificum peterent industriae et eruditionis testimonium.
seek testimony honoring their research and diligence.


Quam ob rem cum ornatissima legibus academicis satis fecisset

For which reason, since the honorable (your name) has satisfied the academic rules,

atque ad summos honores iam contenderet ipsius eruditioni debitos
and has already pursued her education in a manner deserving of the
highest distinction,

Nos, quo causam honestissimam adiuvaremus,
We, in order to assist this most appropriate cause,

cum de eius in medicina progressibus quaestionem instituimus,
have not only undertaken an investigation concerning her advancement
in medicine,

tum audivimus eam defendentem disputationem
but have also heard her defending her disputation (title of your thesis)

in quibus omnibus cum sese talem praestitisset,
in all of which, since she has presented herself so well

ut Nobis doctrinam et dilligentiam suas probaret,
that she has proven her learning and diligence to us,

honorificum quod petebat testimonium ei tribuimus.

we grant her the honoring tesimony which she has sought.

Quapropter nos pro potestate nobis concessa eandem

Wherefore we by virtue of the same power given to us

doctorem sollemni modo rituque creavimus
make (your name) a doctor by the customary manner and ritual.

et renuntiavimus et ei concessimus quidquid iuris et honoris legitime
creato doctori

we have proclaimed and given her all rights and dignity due a properly created doctor

vel lege vel consuetudine inter homines doctos tribui solet.
whether by law or by custom usually granted among educated men.

Cuius rei ut firma sit et testata fides, diploma hoc manu rectoris magnifici
atque promotoris subscriptum et maiore Universitatis sigillo confirmatum
ei tradendum curavimus.


That there may be a firm and attested assurance of this, we have taken
care to hand over to her by the hand of the Rector Magnificus this
diploma, signed by the promoter, and confirmed by the great seal of the
University
