Primus modulus (Lun 1 Jul – Ven 19 Jul 2019), cui titulus est «Sermonis Latini Peritia atque Doctrina», classici sermonis Latini scrutabitur rationes quantum ad ejus elocutionem stilum variaque genera. Quod fiet et classicorum operum studio quæ ad exemplum sunt delecta (Terentî, Ciceronis, Vergilî) juxta eorundem varios Latinos commentatores (Donatum, Macrobium, Servium) et allato novissimæ in hanc materiam eruditionis lumine (Dickey & Chahoud).

Quod fiet ætatum generumque conspectu (Ijsewijn, Lapidge, Rigg) et accurato commentario disceptationeque singularium operum (Galfridi Monemutensis, Thomæ Mori, Francisci Baconi), quo subtiliore familiaritate versentur studiosi et in verbis (qualitate, singularitatibus, stilo) et in rebus (fabulis, historiá, rebus publicis, philosophiá, scientiá), explorando porro feracia commercia quæ usus linguæ Latinæ permissit inter Britannos eruditos, monarchas, philosophos, scientificos, et continentales eorum pares (e.g. Mori cum Erasmo).

Gratius Avitus. The Session 1 (Mon 1 Jul – Fri 19 Jul 2019) Module «Latin Usage: Idiomatic Proficiency and Teaching» will focus on the fine nuances of classical Latin usage, providing both the practical and the academic tools to identify, analyse, evaluate, and replicate, classical Latin idiom, registers and styles, not only through direct work on model classical works selected (Terence, Cicero, Virgil) alongside their various Latin commentators (Donatus, Macrobius, Servius), but also in the light of the latest scholarship in the subject (Dickey & Chahoud). It will further aim to develop skills and resources to teach Latin usage effectively, following the natural method (Ørberg) and the communicative approach (Harmer). The Session 2 (Mon 22 Jul – Fri 9 Aug 2019) Module «The Latin Literature of European Britain» will provide a thorough hands-on introduction to the magnificent heritage of British Latin literature and its constituent importance as part of the wider European culture conveyed in Latin. It will provide an overview of periods and genres (Ijsewijn, Lapidge, Rigg), and dwell on detailed commentary and discussion of specific key texts (Monmouth, More, Francis Bacon), for familiarisation with both form (linguistic quality, specificities, style) and content (legend, history, politics, philosophy, science), additionally turning to epistolary correspondance for further exploration of the enriching connections cultivated by British scholars, monarchs, philosophers and scientists, with their continental counterparts (e.g. More with Erasmus). These are undergraduate credit bearing modules (each constituting a UCL 0.5 course unit, i.e. 4 US credits, 15 UK credits, 7.5 European ECTS) but they are open to all, including Latin teachers seeking training in active use of Latin as a way to improve efficiency in teaching the language, and Latin researchers and scholars eager to develop the skills to delve into the texts in their original tongue. Courses like these consitute a first in the UK and are an excellent opportunity to visit London with access to its wonderful museums and libraries. As has been variously shown (cf. for instance «guest speakers» at http://www.ucl.ac.uk/classics/study/undergraduate/teachingprojects/Living-Latin-Workshop/Index), passive knowledge of the language should allow participants to follow the course with confidence from the start, and the 45 hours of language immersion per module (90 hours in total) will put committed participants in a position successfully to pursue the coursework and complete the assessment in Latin (although assessment is voluntary for those not taking the course for credit). The UCL Summer School is expected to bring together an international gathering of committed Latinists.
