Intermediate Readings in Christian Latin

Craig Henry Tichelkamp


This course is intended to serve as an introduction to the language, content, and culture of patristic and medieval Latin Christianity. Readings for the course will be chosen from theological works, the Latin Bible, and medieval liturgy, and these readings will be used both as a review of Latin grammar and syntax and as an avenue toward greater involvement with the primary sources of medieval Latin Christendom. Much of the term will be spent on reading and translating, with a particular emphasis on honing the grammatical knowledge provided by earlier coursework conducted either in classical or in medieval Latin. Prerequisite: one year of college level Latin or the HDS summer Latin course. Note: Course has additional hour to be arranged.

Enrollment Limited: No
Open to BTI Students: No
