* Description
An introduction to Late and Mediaeval Latin through selected readings and analysis of morphological and syntactic variation. An advanced course offered only infrequently as occasion requires.
* Meetings
This course meets once a week for discussion and review of assigned homework.
* Homework
Regular readings from Sidwell's anthology, together with area studies from the Mantello and Rigg collection of articles.
* Prerequisites
Latin IV or equivalent; further preparation is certainly appropriate, though not absolutely required.
* Recommended background
This is a course that requires considerable fluency and competence in Classical Latin. Some acquaintance with Mediaeval History is an advantage as well.
* Instructor's Notes
A specialized course for those who are interested in pursuing Mediaeval Studies; it deals with standard Late Latin and Medieval Latin authors selected for difficulty, and conducted at the level of an upper-division college course. This is not a course in the Vulgate or its equivalent.
