Course Description

This course is intended for students with a knowledge of basic Latin grammar and vocabulary. The courses introduces the student to reading, understanding and translating simple medieval and classical Latin texts. The course will take the form of a series of lectures, seminars and tutorials in which we read and discuss Latin texts chosen to illustrate the use of grammar and the importance of grammatical analysis in the study of Latin. In addition to grammatical and syntactical analysis, students will be invited to contemplate the difference between medieval and classical Latin.
