Who would be interested in having a Webinar or something on the Christian Latin poets of Late Antiquity (Sedulius, Prudentius, Ambrose, Proba) -- these are the great "Vergilians" and "Horatians" who founded medieval and modern poetry! -- I would be willing to do it (or help do it) but I need more technical experience or help.

Hello, I'm new in this network, I joined this group because I want to learn about medieval latin and culture. Can you recommend me a grammar or something like that to start, please? Thank you!!

Two of the best survey readers are Keith Sidwell, Reading Medieval Latin (Cambridge UP, 1995); and K. P. Harrington, Medieval Latin, 2nd ed. revised by Joseph Pucci, with a grammatical introduction by Alison G. Elliott (Univ. of Chicago Press, 1st ed 1962, revised 2nd ed 1997). The standard reference work is currently F. A. C. Mantello and A. G. Rigg, Medieval Latin: An Introduction and Bibliographical Guide (CUA Press, 1996)

For intros to the history and culture, a good historical textbook is Medieval Europe. A Short History, by C. Warren Hollister, 10th ed. revised by Judith M. Bennett (McGraw Hill, 2006). For a more synthetic approach to cultural history, I would recommend Jacques LeGoff's Medieval Civilization (Blackwell, 1988). Each of these (and esp. the Bennet/Hollister) will have good bibliographies if you want to go further.

Hope this helps!

I could facilitate the technology fairly easily using DimDim.com. I use that webinar platform for work, and it's free. If we work out a timetable, Geraldus and I can do a trial meeting and then host an official one shortly thereafter.

I just got a book on ligatures at a tag sale.  Very helpful when reading 15th & 16th c. books.  Imagine, someone basically "threw it away" for $2.00.

This is an open request to Pat Wentworth to stop spamming the group with links and messages about making quick money at scam websites.
