This Latin course is for beginners and is taught at the Warburg Institute, for 2 weeks, 11 - 22 September 2017, from 11.00 am to 1.00 pm and from 2.00 pm to 3.00 pm, Monday to Friday.

The course is open to anyone interested at a cost of £175.00. Admission is free to present students of the Warburg Institute and those attending a course during the academic year 2017/18 at the Warburg Institute.  

The course is led by Dr Guido Giglioni, Cassamarca Senior Lecturer in Neo-Latin Cultural and Intellectual History. It is designed for beginners and focuses on Latin texts from the fourteenth to the seventeenth century, drawing on a wide range of sources: the sophisticated Latin of the humanists; various forms of technical Latin (medical, philosophical, theological, etc.); and macaronic jumbles of Latin and the vernacular. One of the principal aims of the course is to help students develop the ability to read primary sources in the original Latin.  Students who wish to brush up their Latin are welcome to register, but they should be aware that the course content will be at beginner level.  

The course will last for two weeks, from Monday 11 September to Friday 22 September 2017.  Each day will be divided into two sessions: a morning session from 11.00 am to 1.00 pm which will focus on grammatical instruction; and an afternoon session from 2.00 pm to 3.00 pm which will concentrate on supervised reading and translation of Latin texts.
