Description

The Paideia Institute for Humanistic Study, in conjunction with the Pontifical Academy Latinitas, is sponsoring a roundtable discussion on the place of spoken and written Latin in medieval studies today. The last two decades have witnessed an explosion of interest in “living” Latin – i.e., spoken and written Latin – as a way of enhancing Latin comprehension. In the United States, events such as the Conventiculum Latinum, Rusticationes Latinae, Cenaculum Sancti Hieronymi, Veterum Sapientia, as well as events in Europe and beyond, show that students, teachers, and scholars are keenly aware of the value of keeping Latin alive through active use. One particular forum where the burgeoning interest of medievalists in living Latin is evident is the “Living Latin in Paris” course offered by the Paideia Institute. This roundtable discussion, to be conducted in Latin, would be devoted to reviewing the past, appraising the present, and envisioning the future of living Latin in medieval studies. How is “living” Latin being used in the classroom today? What are the fora in which medieval scholars publish original academic material in Latin? What events might be organized to promote its use in the future? Participants in the roundtable discussion include several fluent, accomplished medieval scholars. The discussion would be conducted in a friendly, unintimidating way to both demonstrate and encourage spoken Latin among the attendees.
