Building on the foundations laid in Ecclesiastical Latin A and B, this unit involves a study of Medieval Latin through reading and translating original texts from the seventh century onwards. These will include poetry, hymns, saints' lives, homilies and other extracts from the Church fathers. The emphasis will be on reading medieval Latin in its literary and historical contexts.
