Latin course at Gloucester Cathedral

15-19 August 2011 with George Sharpley

The course sketches the history of early Rome and tells the story of the end of the republic and rise of the emperors. Readings are taken from ancient Latin writers, and through their story-telling the course weaves a picture of the people of Rome, their lives, their history, their mythology, their aspirations and beliefs, their joys, foibles and cruelties.

There is a progressive step-by-step approach to the language and grammar, and an introduction to Latin verse.
