Meanings of "Invita Minerva!"

Croatian

Ovaj latinski izraz odnosi se na suočavanje s boginjom.
Minerva je bila rimska boginja mudrosti, umjetnosti i talenta. Dakle, kada pokušate učiniti nešto bez njene pomoći, tj. bez talenta ili mudrosti, ili protiv njezine volje, to bi značilo da idete protiv same božice, što znači ići protiv nebesa i tako prkositi samoj prirodi.

English

This Latin expression is about going against a goddess.
Minerva was the Roman goddess of wisdom, art and talent. So when you try to do something without her help, i.e. without talent or wisdom, or without a willing Minerva, that would mean you go against the goddess herself, which means going against the heavens and so in defiance of nature itself.
