Latin online with Reginald Foster Summer 2020

Monday 8 June – Saturday 1 August 2020

Aestiva Milvauchiae Latinitas MMXX


Register: Join the sessions held online via Zoom by sending an email request to Prof. Dr. Jeanne-Nicole Saint-Laurent at this address. She will need to use your email address in order to send an invitation to you to join the daily sessions. She will also send to you the reading sheets in PDF format, or you can download them below.

Reading sheets: please download these reading sheets along with the calendar. Please have them at hand during class time so that we may read them together. You may print the images on legal size paper for which they were made, or on A4 paper which is slightly larger and so easier to read. The reading sheets may be dowloaded in three parts:
Part 1 is for Juniors, the first session in the afternoon.
Part 2 is for Juniors and Seniors, the second session in the afternoon.
Part 3 is for Seniors, the third session in the afternoon.

Ludi domestici: We shall do several ludi domestici “domestic games” in the course of our two-month session. They shall will be made available for download on this page as Reggie is prepared for his students to consider them.
Ludus aestivus domesticus 1, to be discussed on [date]
Ludus aestivus domesticus 2, to be discussed on [date]
Ludus aestivus domesticus 3, to be discussed on [date]
Ludus aestivus domesticus 4, to be discussed on [date]
Ludus aestivus domesticus 5, to be discussed on [date]

Current expectations are that each ludus will be made available on a Tuesday. On the following Monday the ludus will be discussed during the second afternoon session, the one for juniors and seniors. After the discussion, if you would like Reggie to correct your ludus, you may send it in the post (snail mail) to Reggie at the address given on this page. Please in clude a self-addressed stamped envelope for his ease in returning the ludus to you with his comments. We expect to complete five or at most six ludi during the summer session.

For more information I have a whole packet with:

• a Latin presentation of the whole undertaking (download here),
• an English presentation of the Summer program (download here),
• the daily calendar (download here),

Please enjoy reading your copy of Ossa Latinitatis SolaThe Mere Bones of Latin, and bring it with you, because there will be continual references to the teaching presented herein.

In January 2020 you will be able to pre-order the second book Ossium Carnes Multae: The Bones’ Meats Abundant, which will be better than the first which it presupposes. Look for the Spring and Summer catalogue of CUA Press available here.

Reginald’s first published chapter on the principles of the subjunctive, purpose and result clauses, the gerund and gerundive and much more is in Appreciating the Collect.

Reginald’s latest publication consists of his translations of the short texts of the Easter vigil in Transition in the Easter Vigil.

Another Latin Summer 2020 programme at Ealing, London for one week, 12-23 August 2019 is taught from a draft copy of the Ossa Latinitatis Sola book. We also teach from a draft copy of our second book, Ossium Carnes Multae, a course spent simply reading and understanding the letters of Cicero.

I have begun to compile a web-page with a few Latin resources for use in teaching.

Download the parts of the packet by clicking on the images below or the links above. To receive the preliminary assessment for both levels of juniors and seniors you must write a note to Reginald and he will return it in the post.
