5 Credits AUTUMN


Pre-requisites: Working knowledge of Classical Latin (e.g. GCSE or above, or successful completion of the Beginners' Latin courses offered by the Modern Languages Teaching Centre)


Aims/Description: This course is designed to help postgraduate students with reading a range of different Medieval Latin texts which might be of use to them in their research, including prose histories, chronicles, and legal and ecclesiastical documents. Students wishing to attend this course should already have a reasonable working knowledge of Classical Latin (e.g. GCSE or above, or successful completion of the Beginners' Latin courses offered by the Modern Languages Teaching Centre). The course will use as its main textbook Documents in Medieval Latin by John Thorley, which students should acquire in advance of the first class.
