Sphinx Head from Amphipolis? Maybe … Maybe Not

The twittersphere was all agog yesterday as the Ministry of Culture released photos of a head found by the archaeologists which is being touted as the heads of one of the headless sphinges guarding the entrance to the tomb at Amphipolis. Here’s the offical photos released by the Ministry Kathimerini’s coverage provides the relevant info […]

Implications of the Hades/Persephone Mosaic at Amphipolis

As most rogueclassicism readers know by now, a spectacular mosaic depicting the abduction of Persephone by Hades was revealed last week at Amphipolis and is causing quite a stir for a number of reasons, not least of which is that such things have not been depicted in Macedonian tomb before, much less a royal Macedonian […]

Latinum has moved!

Omnes,

 

Due to the recent struggles with MyPodcast, our own Molendinarius has moved his Latinum site to http://latinum.org.uk.  This change has been reflected in our links section as well.  Please check this out, it's a very useful site.

 

Remember, if you have something that you would like to share with the members here, please send me a message and you can be a "guest" poster.


Pax,

Webinars...Apps...Toga Beats...eyeVocab Oh My!!!

Bolchazy-Carducci started the school year out with a series of six webinars that includes presentations about Latin for the New Millennium, eyeVocab, AP®, and Caesar. 

There is still time to sign up for the final four webinars:

“Check Out the Materials in the LNM Teachers' Lounge and Other Ideas for Teaching LNM
Tuesday, October 28, 2014 6:00–7:00 PM ET
Presenter: Stephen Sullivan, Renbrook School, West Hartford, Connecticut


Wouldn't you like to learn more about what can be found in the Latin for the New Millennium Teachers' Lounge? Hate to reinvent the wheel? Love to put your colleagues' teaching tips to work? Looking for some ideas to add to your LNM repertoire? This webinar will be a boon to all using Latin for the New Millennium or considering its use.

“Helping AP® Latin Students Explore Themes & Make Connections”
Tuesday, November 4, 2014 6:00–7:00 PM ET
Presenter: Mary Pendergraft, Wake Forest University, Winston-Salem, North Carolina

The new AP® Latin curriculum expects students to be able to make connections between Caesar's De bello Gallico and Vergil's Aeneid. Students may also be asked to make connections between two passages from the DBG or two passages from the Aeneid. Dr. Pendergraft's presentation will explore themes that connect Caesar and Vergil.

“Julius Caesar and Roman Religion”
Tuesday, November 11, 2014 6:00–7:00 PM ET
Presenter: Hans-Friedrich Mueller, Union College, Schenectady, New York

This webinar examines Roman religion in Caesar's day. It illuminates Caesar's religious persona from his role as pontifex maximus to that of general referencing Fortuna in his narrative. This webinar provides a fuller context for understanding the complex individual who was Julius Caesar.

“Sabinus and Cotta in Caesar's Bellum Gallicum
Tuesday, November 18, 2014 6:00–7:00 PM ET
Presenter: John Jacobs, Montclair Kimberly Academy, Montclair, New Jersey

Jacobs will talk about how Caesar works Sabinus and Cotta into the earlier narrative of the Bellum Gallicum in books 2, 3, and 4 in anticipation of their critical appearance in book 5. He also examines the reception of Sabinus and Cotta in subsequent reports of the debacle in Greek and Latin literature. He will show how AP® Latin teachers can offer their classes something of the reading I offer for the Caesar, but also perhaps make use of the later sources for either papers or projects or else for assessment. The Common Core expects students to be able to marshal primary sources for the defense of an argument. As Jacobs will demonstrate, Latin teachers have been doing this all along.

This webinar is scheduled for Tuesday, June 10, 2014 6:00–7:00 PM EST (5:00-6:00 Central Time) presented by high school teacher, Thaddeus Lisowski.

Frustrated that your students so frequently forget the vocabulary they need to know and supposedly "learned"?

Thaddeus Lisowski received his AB from Harvard University in Classics and his PhD from U.C. Berkeley in Comparative Literature (emphasis in Ancient Greek and Latin). While at Berkeley, Thaddeus taught English Composition and Literature courses and Latin and Greek language courses (including intensive summer workshops in both languages). He taught four years at Maybeck High School in the English and Math departments, including AP English and AP Calculus, where he also was co-leader of a student trip to Machu Picchu over the Inca Trail. Since 2007, Thaddeus has taught Latin in the upper school at the Head-Royce School in Oakland, CA. During off hours, Thaddeus enjoys biking with his two young daughters and hiking in the East Bay hills or in more far-flung places.

Vergil's Aeneid: Selected Readings for Books 1, 2, 4, and 6

Caesar: Selections from His Comentarii De Bello Gallico

Latin for the New Millennium Level 1

Latin for the New Millennium Level 2

The Ovid Reader is now available

An Ovid Reader: Selections from Seven Works by Carole Newland is now available from Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers. An Ovid Reader is the seventeenth title in the BC Latin Reader Series.

These readers, written by experts in the field, provide well annotated Latin selections to be used as authoritative introductions to Latin authors, genres, or topics, for intermediate or advanced college Latin study. Their relatively small size (covering 500-600 lines) makes them ideal to use in combination.

Each volume includes a comprehensive introduction, bibliography for further reading, Latin text with notes at the back, and complete vocabulary.
 
Ovid’s poetry, once regarded as superficial in comparison to that of other Augustan poets, is now hailed for its artistry, its mastery at storytelling, and the profound influence it has had on literature and art from the poet’s own time to the present day.

This Reader’s commentary gives grammatical and syntactical assistance, seasoned with appreciation of the fine points of Ovid’s complex literary style. Latin selections are drawn in part from his elegiac poems and demonstrate the new range of directions for elegy developed by Ovid: not merely love elegy (Amores, and with a fresh epistolary form in Heroides); but also didactic and aetiological elegy (Ars Amatoria, Fasti), each with a twist on expected subject-matter; and exile poetry (Tristia, Epistulae ex Ponto), whose elegiac themes are adapted from earlier poetry to express emotional as well as political meaning after Ovid’s banishment from his beloved Rome. Select passages from the epic Metamorphoses, a brilliant experiment that uses a variety of genres under a unifying theme, fill out the collection with the work acknowledged to be Ovid’s major achievement.

Special Features
  • Introduction to Ovid’s life, works, style, and meter
  • 556 lines of unadapted Latin text in 30 selections from 7 works: Amores 1.1.1–4; 1.6.27–40; 1.9.1–20; 1.13.1–18, 21–26, 47–48; 2.15.1–28 • Heroides 3.1–4, 113–20; 5.61–88; 7.181–96 • Ars Amatoria 1.1–4, 17–34; 1.89–102; 1.505–24; 3.329–48 • Metamorphoses1.168–88; 2.227–34, 272–84; 3.173–98; 3.402–17; 4.93–127; 5.585–600; 10.270–94; 13.764–69, 838–53; 15.75–95; 15.871–79 • Fasti 1.89–102; 2.813–36; 4.305–28; 5.193–212 • Tristia 1.7.15–30; 4.6.1–18; 4.10.1–2, 17–26, 41–66 • Epistulae ex Ponto 3.3.5–20
  • Suggested reading; five illustrations
