About the course

This Latin IV course is designed for students in grades 10-12. Through intensive engagement with undapted primary sources, the goal is to polish to a fine grain students’ skills with an appreciation of this magnificent language with which God’s providence advanced Christian culture throughout the Middle Ages and into the Early Modern period, as late as just 300 years ago.

Each week during this 32-week course, students will listen to a lecture on grammar and syntax topics drawn from the Ecce Romani III text, thoroughly learn new vocabulary and review old vocabulary, apply their skills on translation and parsing exercises, and participate in a 1.5-hour live recitation. Each semester will also feature at least 8 quizzes, and two tests.

Course Objectives:

  1. To thoroughly hone students’ Latin sight-reading skills.
  2. To make students fully comfortable with engaging a variety of undapted classical, Medieval, and possibly Early Modern Latin texts.
  3. To complete this part of an essential foundation for a really thorough engagement with the Classics of the Ancient and Medieval worlds.
