This class is as an alternative to LATIN 232 (Vergil, Aeneid) and fulfills the final semester of the language requirement in Latin. A pre-requisite for the class is the successful completion of LATIN 231 or the equivalent.

The purpose of the course is to read excerpts from Augustine' Confessions, Jerome' Vulgate and Letters, Ambrose' Letters and Hymns and from other Late Latin - Early Mediaeval authors. The course will prepare you to handle Late Latin texts with confidence and appreciation for language, style and rhetorical technique. It will expand your vocabulary and ability to read and translate original texts with a full appreciation for the historical and cultural context in which they were written. While solidifying your control over the essentials of Classical Latin grammar, the course will highlight the differences between Classical Latin and Late Latin. The course includes a basic introduction to Vergil's Aeneid which informed some of the texts read in the course. A course-pack (ca $30) is the only required item for the course.

This course is a good fit, if you are pursuing any of the following fields:

  • English Literature
  • Early Christian Studies
  • History
  • Near Eastern Studies
  • Art History
  • Archaeology
  • Linguistics
  • Romance Languages
