I have just been watching an old TV series called Porterhouse Blue which is a Tom Sharpe comedy about an ultra-conservative and old fashioned university called Porterhouse. At one point there is a ceremony when the new college master arrives for the first time.
All of the words are spoken in Latin. The question is what are they saying? Is this Latin gibberish, is it a real ceremony of some sort or is it a hidden comedic ceremony in Latin? Switching on subtitles revealed the following:
Skullion the head Porter bangs on the college door:
Heu! Oui estis intus
Fores aperire iubeo
The Dean opens the door and says:
Qui nos iubet
Ecce magister, mister
Ergo. Fer patefactiat
Et qua sit auctoriatate renuntiatus
The Dean shuts door then the Master knocks the door and the Dean opens again.
Quisnam nos appellant
Lussu regina ex auctoritate concilii
Primorum ac pontificum
Ab eoquem pennies est summa protestus
Magister modo declaratus
Hic ego adytum postulo
Mandatum tecum fers?
Hoc signum ius meum declarant
Document handed over. Dean and others together:
Per Deum, per fidem reginae datam
Nos domus porteori socii
