Forging friendships


New Member
Hi there!
Is there an equivalent phrase in Latin that encompasses the English phrase "forging friendships", if not, how would you translate it?


Civis Illustris
Perhaps amicitias iungere, which would be like "joining friendship" or something like that. Would you want something more literal?


Civis Illustris
In Cicero's de amicitia (on friendship) you find a lot of expressions. Apart from "amicitias iungere" as suggested by Laurentius, I believe the strongest one is "amicitias conciliare" for forging/striking up friendships
