Course Overview

A confident working knowledge of Latin is an essential skill for any student of mediaeval and/or early modern western and central Europe.  This course is a hybrid of first-year Latin, shared with undergraduate beginners (LT1009), and an augmentation designed to meet the needs of graduate students who must rapidly grasp how to analyse and translate the kinds of (often very difficult) Latin prose which they will encounter in the course of their own research.  The graduate part begins in mid-term.  Assessment of both parts  is by in-class tests.
