I wish I read Italian…

I noticed that someone found this blog by searching on “latin pagan hymn”; that sounded like an interesting search, so I ran it myself and came upon a book I desperately want to read – Giuseppe La Bua’s L’inno nella letteratura poetica latina (“The Hymn in Latin Poetic Literature”).

There are a couple of short reviews here and here… it sounds so completely and totally up my alley that I could almost weep.  *sigh*

On a similar note, does anyone know of a good English translation of Michael Marullus’ Hymni Naturales or the surviving bits of George Gemistos Plethon’s Nomoi? :)
