THE ADLER LATIN AUDIO COURSE | Latinum on Patreon. The Latinum Course is an online multi-level and multi-media Latin course, that has been growing steadily since Evan started creating it in early 2007. The Adler Course forms part of a larger suite of materials to help you reach Latin fluency, the Latinum Audiobook Catalogue. The core of the course is Adler's Practical Grammar of the Latin Language, which took Evan der Millner two years of full-time labour to produce as a stand-alone audio course - vastly expanding the material in an already comprehensive textbook of Latin. If you want to master Latin, Adler's course as presented by Latinum is all that you will require. Some students have found that the Adler Audio Course is a good companion course to Ørberg, or their school or university course. You can use Adler alone, or combine it with any other Latin course. Why an audio course for a dead language?

Each of the 97 lessons is in 3 parts: ( except for the first four lessons, which follow a slightly different arrangement) 1. 2. 3. Where Catholics Learn Latin. Stone—Translation of Alcuin's De virtutibus et vitiis liber. On the Linguistic Benefit of Prayer in Latin. [Guest Post by Benjamin Turner, M.D.] — Latinitium. What is Latin Prayer? The Latin habit of prayer is impossible to define precisely, because the time allotted to prayer differs so much between people.

For many, Latin prayer will be limited to the weekly Mass. At the opposite extreme, traditionally-minded monks such as those at Norcia in Italy, Le Barroux in France, or Clear Creek in Oklahoma, rise before dawn to spend half their waking hours praying in Latin. They sing roughly the whole 150 psalms in a week, besides daily Masses, private prayer, and blessings of fields, meals, beer, trucks, and pretty well omnia quae moventur in terra.

For one example of something in the middle, my own habit (well, when I’m behaving myself) includes: Weekly Mass, with Gregorian chant whenever possible. Daily Prime (morning prayer) and Vespers (evening). Daily reading of the Regula Sancti Benedicti, about five minutes. Grace at meals, a few minutes. Reading of religious books in Latin, time variable. Discipline How does such a habit help one to learn Latin? Publications of the Familia Sancti Hieronymi.

OPUSCULA OMNIA SANCTI FRANCISCI ASSISIENSIS. ADMONITIONES [Adm] [Cap. I: De corpore Domini] 1Dicit Dominus Jesus discipulis suis: Ego sum via, veritas et vita; nemo venit ad Patrem nisi per me. 2Si cognosceretis me, et Patrem meum utique cognosceretis; et amodo cognoscetis eum et vidistis eum. 3Dicit ei Philippus: Domine, ostende nobis Patrem et sufficit nobis. 4Dicit ei Jesus: Tanto tempore vobiscum sum et non cognovistis me?

Summers are an excellent time to undertake concentrated language learning, both for high-school, college, and graduate students who tend to have more free time in summers, and for working adults who wish to make something special of their vacation times. Summer language learning allows one to focus almost exclusively on the language in question while being free of most other demands and distractions.

In particular, those who wish to acquire a speaking knowledge of a foreign language will benefit from the immersion or near-immersion context in which several summer language learning programs operate. Setting aside summer programs such as the University of Kentucky (which I have not attended, but of which I hear good things, and which seems to specialize in Classical Latin) there are currently two major, week-long, summer programs for developing one's speaking ability in Ecclesiastical Latin, namely, the Cenaculum sponsored by the Family of St. Bottom line: both programs are terrific.

Edonnelly.com - Great Books on G'Oogle and Internet Pharrchive. Great Books Available from Google Books, the Internet Archive and Elsewhere This list began as something I posted on textkit, but I have reproduced and expanded it here. Initially this was a list of books I had found on Google Books, but I have since added many books from other sources, especially archive.org. Maybe I'll even update this list every now and then... Since I wrote this for members of textkit, I didn't bother to include its own extensive collection of pdf files of classical books.

If you are not familiar with that site, you should definitely explore all it has to offer. Thanks: Many of you have emailed me additional links or posted them to textkit. Note: For some reason, Google does not make all of its pdf books available to computers from outside of the US and Canada. Final Note: These are just links, I don't have any of the actual files here.
