Latin 1 is the first half of a two-semester language sequence preparing students to read Classical Latin. THIS SECTION IS THE ONLINE VERSION OF LATIN 1, covering the same material as the other sections but in an online format. The course focuses on the dialect of Latin used by authors such as Caesar, Cicero, Vergil, and Ovid. If you want to read the language used by Caesar to address the senate, by Dido to blast Aeneas, and by Petronius to write one of the first novels, this course is your first step. This course also will also equip you to read later texts such as the works of Augustine and the Latin translations of the Hebrew and Christian Bibles—and to decipher the Latin terms and phrases used in law and bio-scientific disciplines.
