Living Latin Online

The Middle Ages


Dec. 26th 2020 - Jan. 3rd, 2021


Living Latin Online: The Middle Ages is an intensive Latin experience focusing on medieval Latin. Participants read important Latin texts from the medieval period (along with other salient postclassical texts) that demonstrate the development of Latin as a language in later eras. The program's goal is to provide an intensive period of medieval Latin study and an introduction to the culture and history of the middle ages.


Sections grouped by level will meet daily from December 26th to January 3rd in a two hour block with a short break. Paideia offers flexible scheduling to meet your needs, and we welcome students from around the world to register for the course. Please indicate your availability on the registration form and notify [email protected] of any changes or questions about your schedule. There will be a one-day break in the course on New Years’ Eve.

In addition to the individual reading and discussion sections, there will be optional lectures and activities related to the theme of medieval Latin (e.g. paleography, medieval art, open Latin conversation) open to all participants. 


This course is open to all students with an interest in post-classical Latin, regardless of level. Please indicate your level of reading and speaking on your registration form. Students will be grouped according to their experience levels.

Participants are encouraged to communicate with instructors and each other in Latin, although beginners in speaking or reading Latin are also welcome to participate.
