Latin 100 :  Republican Prose
1:00 - 2:00

This course serves as an introduction to reading and translating Latin prose through the works of two of the most famous Latin prose authors of the Republican period: Caesar and Cicero. Both authors write in elegant and appealing Latin, and their works stand at critical points in Roman imperial expansion and the collapse of the Roman Republic. The course also serves as a bridge between the Latin grammar sequence and advanced reading courses, strengthening the skills acquired in introductory Latin and familiarizing students with the tools and best practices of reading and translating unadapted Latin prose.
