I don't speak or read Latin,
but I know some of you around here probably do,
so if someone could look at this and tell me what it says I would really appreciate it!


Thank you in advance!

Can't help you, sorry. But maybe this should have gone in the spiritual forum. Lots of people there might know something about it.

Obesity to pull half of his life. In death we die, remember

I wasn't sure it was worth a spiritual thread over it.
Figured it would be better in the general chit-chat.

Thanks, I was having a really hard time finding that word!

You matched it up pretty much to what I was thinking it was by trying to look things up.
I was getting frustrated though and figured it would be easier to ask somebody.


It came from here:

It was on the glass box in the video.
You might be able to make more out.

In fact, if anyone can make out any more of what is on the glass box in the video,
that would be very helpful of you!

The writing is supposed to contain his imaginary friend.

"In media vitae sumus in morte" means "In the middle of life we are in death". A classic mediaeval sentiment to be found on gravestones.
"Memento mori" means "remember that you are going to die". Another standard sentiment. The story goes that Roman generals celebrating a triumph in the streets of Rome would have slaves whispering this in their ear, to bring them back down to earth.

I'm going to have to disagree.


Media vita in morte sumus is actually "In the midst of life we are in death" which is both the title of a Christian responsory from the middle ages and a line within it.

Memento mori translates to "remember you will die" and is meant to point out the fleeting nature of life.

I'm not familiar with the word entrum or its meaning. Are you sure it's obesity?

Almost like he was reminding himself in Latin to not take himself so seriously...lol
At least partly.

Any idea how this could be used as a barrier of some kind?

You'll have to ask the illusionist.
It looks as though he just wanted a bit of Latin to look impressive.

Yep. Just trying to add a little flair that looked occult.

I think there's a faint HOC after the AD.
AD HOC- to this, or on this.

P.S. As somebody who has actually studied Latin, I can see that the linked internet translator is no good for translating that language.

To me that looks like reflection from other window.

I think the writing is like this:
"Entrum ad nostra media vita in morte sumus
Memento mori" and it means "within our mid life we die Remember, you will die"

"Entrum" in current Italian becomes "Entro" that is "within" but it's also the singular first person of the verb "entrare" which means "get in"

I am Italian and I used to study Latin for five years at the high school. Don't remember that much lol but the sentence in the OP is not so difficult

I think it's "nostra" because the long sign is clearly an "S" and the two faint letters could well be the "n" and the "o" especially because "nostra" (our) does make sense with the rest.
