Latinitas perpetua is a program entirely in Latin with a focus on classical, medieval, and modern Latin literature. The course serves an essential path for fully appreciating Latin literature from antiquity to the present day. Sessions will not only emphasize the exploration of less well known texts from all periods of Latin literature history, but will also emphasize aural comprehension and the active production of Latin to deepen linguistic competency in the language. The structure of the course is straightforward and happens on a bi-weekly basis each month in meetings that last one and a half hours in Schola Humanistica’s virtual setting.
