Abstract

This friendly, non-threatening workshop is designed for anyone who would like to learn to read Latin aloud (or to refresh now faded learning on this score). All present will hear from expert readers and will have the opportunity to read aloud from selected texts. Some attention will be paid to differences between Classical and ‘Church’ Latin. Photocopies of the texts will be available.
