Medieval Latin Reading Group
An informal group that meets fortnightly to read medieval texts in Latin in a friendly and supportive environment. All levels of Latin expertise welcomed.
Contact: John Weretka
Time: 12.30 - 2.00 every second Thursday through the year commencing 1 February 2018.
Location: Baillieu Library, generally Project Room 10.
The pieces chosen are either directly related to members' research or have language and vocabulary that members want to explore for their research. There is usually an English translation available for the texts chosen.
In semester 2 2018, the group will be translating the Devastatio Constantinopolitana and Boncompagno da Signa’s Liber de obsidione Anconae. Copies of texts will be made available to group members.
