101032 - Latin (in English)

ECTS:

A fuller explanation of this course is available on this web-page of the professor: https://danielmccarthyosb.com/latin/

If you wish to understand the Latin language and its literature for the past 2,300 years, and you wish to study in English, this course will provide Latin’s bones, how the language is structured and connects together. This course is part of the preparatory year of linguistic study at the Pontifical Institute of Liturgy at Sant’Anselmo, Rome, although other people are welcome to enrol and join our study.

We shall use the system developed by Fr. Reginald Foster, OCD, papal Latinist for four popes over 40 years, as presented in the volume Ossa Latinitatis Sola ad mentem reginaldi rationemque: The Mere Bones of Latin according to the thought and system of Reginald, and its companion volume Ossium Carnes Multae e Marci Tullii Ciceronis epistulis: The Bones’ Meats aboundant from the epistles of Marcus Tullius Cicero. We presume no prior knowledge of the Latin language, but require dedicated personal study and daily application.

You may enrol for the first, Autumn semester only or for the entire year of studies. Because our system of studying Latin was developed by Reginald Foster and is distinctive in many ways, we recommend participants join us from the beginning, and not arrive half-way through the academic year-long course.
