15 credits

Level 2

First Sub Session

This course builds on the previous year's teaching in Latin and introduces the students to medium-grade difficulty Latin texts, such as the Gospels and medieval saints lives. It aims to provide a forum for study of both Latin language and literature. The aim is to consolidate and extend our students grasp of grammar syntax and vocabulary of classical and medieval Latin, with all the chief constructions having been covered by the end of the course. Delivered as a distance learning course but students who are in attendance on campus are more than welcome to take this course.  Download Course Guide
