Sallust: Bellum Catilinae
Wednesday., 8pm (U.S. Eastern Time)
Course Description: Sallust's Bellum Catilinae, a historical monograph treating the conspiracy of Catiline, provides a different perspective that both complements and challenges Cicero's portrayal in his Catilinarians. Sallust's language is occasionally archaic and terse but also fluid and a joy to read. It will be a good jumping-off point for practice in spoken Latin.
Level: Participants with at least an intermediate level of ability in both reading and speaking Latin will find this course most rewarding.
Textbook: Sallust's Bellum Catilinae: Latin Text With Facing Vocabulary and Commentary (Amazon)
