LANGUAGE WORKSHOPS

These Workshops are available over Zoom and are co-sponsored by St. Paul's Parish and St. Peter's Parish in Cambridge, MA.  

SEPTEMBER 2020 - MAY 2021

The Christian Latin course surveys inspiring and underappreciated examples of Christian prose and poetry in the original Latin from the Roman Empire through the Medieval era. Featured texts include a selection of early saints' lives, the Vulgate Bible, the antiphons of St. Hildegard, and more. Taught by classical languages instructor Michael O'Brien, the course focuses on reading and text translation, with only a bit of language review. The materials for the course are available online or distributed for free. Participants should have a year of experience and some recollection of at least a year of Latin. 

The fourth year of the New Testament Greek course is underway! The selected reading this year is Matthew's Gospel, particularly passages without counterparts in the other Gospels. Jointly taught by classical languages instructor Michael O'Brien and Deacon Tim O'Donnell, the course features some review of Greek, yet focuses on reading and translation of the text. Participants should have a year of experience in and some recollection of at least a year in either New Testament or Classical Greek. The materials for the course are available online or distributed for free.
