A study group for those with intermediate Latin who want to read texts together. 

Join our Latin Reading Group to explore different Latin texts - ranging from poetry to prose, from classical to insular, and from the serious to the light-hearted. Texts will be circulated in advance, and attendees are encouraged to prepare before the evening. Help with grammar, vocabulary, and context will be provided. 

In April  & May we hope to cover three texts from Benedict's Rule (Prologue, the Chapter about welcoming guests to the Abbey and the final chapter).  

Passage 1.   The Prologue to St Benedict’s Rule

Passage 2.   Welcoming Guests in St Benedict’s Rule

Passage 3. The Conclusion to St Benedict’s Rule
