Course description

This course follows LATI E-1a and LATI E-1b. Students progress from the straightforward narratives and short inscriptions of the introductory courses to more complex authentic texts. Readings are from the classical period to the middle ages and from various genres, including lyric poetry and history, as well as the Vulgate (a fourth-century Latin translation of the Bible). After this course, students have experience with all the standard forms and syntax of Latin and should be prepared for further literature courses or independent study.
