Medieval Mosaic: A Book of Medieval Latin Readings
Product Code: 5432
Description & More Details
These informative and entertaining selections, when pieced together, build a brilliant mosaic that depicts the thought, theology, history, and spiritual and personal lives of people living in the fourth through fifteenth centuries A.D., from early Christianity to the Renaissance. The passages, complete with notes, are accessible to intermediate Latin students, and include a fine range of well-known and less often included readings. A brief, helpful introduction to medieval Latin and list of medieval Latin words not occurring in classical Latin aid readers making the transition from beginning (classical) Latin to medieval Latin. The chronological arrangement of the passages puts them into historical context, with succinct introductions to periods and texts that are engaging as well as instructive.
