    Description & More Details

    Master Latin teacher Rose Williams has authored a beginning Latin reader that draws from the Bible and other Christian sources as well as from some ancient Roman sources. The choices all illuminate the book's central theme, drawn from Philippians —"Things which are true, things which are honest, things which are just, things which are pure, things which are lovely, things which are of good report; reflect on these things". In the fashion of a graded reader, De Bonis Cogitationibus stories are initially short but gradually grow longer and more involved as the student's skills as a Latin reader grow.
