Learn Latin at Ohio Dominican University this summer

Ohio Dominican University in Columbus, Ohio is set to offer a summer program in Latin this summer. Under the direction of Dr. Matthew Ponesse, Associate Professor of History, the program is aimed at students pursuing graduate studies in the fields of medieval history, literature, philosophy, or theology.

The summer program begins on June 13th, with two courses offered concurrently: Beginner/Review course and Intermediate Medieval Latin. The latter will involve students reading Medieval Latin texts typically selected from the Vulgate Bible, sermons, hymns, chronicles, hagiographical texts, scholastic treatises and poetry. On July 11th, the Advanced Medieval Latin course begins, running to August 5 with students focusing on more advanced texts.

The cost per course is $1,000. For more information, please visit
