Latin 462: Latin Literature of the Augustan Age

TTh 2.30-4.20

SMI 111

Prof. Levin-Richardson

We will read Book 1 of Livy’s Ab Urbe Condita, which covers the founding of Rome and the regal period (753-510 BCE), including the stories of Romulus and Remus, and the Sabine Women. While the majority of class time will be spent translating the text and discussing points of grammar and style, we will also look at some examples of scholarship on early Livy.

This class is best suited for those who have completed two years of college-level Latin or the equivalent amount of High School Latin. If you have a background in Latin and are curious as to whether this class might be a good fit, feel free to contact me and we can chat (Prof Levin-Richardson:
