Particular attention will be paid to the changes in Latin grammar, syntax, and orthography from AD 400-1300. Readings will include saints? lives, letters, travel literature, romance, history, philosophy, poetry and some humanist writings. Medieval Latin texts from the British Isles, Gaul, Spain and Italy will be surveyed. Besides situating the texts within their historical contexts, we will explore the European reception of Greco-Roman antiquity.
