Fables and Foundations

FABLES AND FOUNDATIONS                                                                          Have you finished Henle 1, or Lingua Latina: Per Se Illustrata? Are you ready for a Latin reading course, but not quite ready to read through Julius Caesar’s Gallic Wars?

If so, then this may be the class you are looking for.

In Fables and Foundations, we will read through the book of Genesis (foundations).  After spending a semester there, we will read through the famous Fabulae Faciles by Francis Ritchie.

So, what does Fabulae Faciles even mean?  It translates into English as “Easy Fables.”  In fact, it is a book of Greek and Roman myths, written entirely in Latin!

We will read the stories of Perseus, Hercules, Jason and the Argonauts, and Ulysses (Odysseus) together, in Latin!

We will finish the year by reading through De Bello Gallico, by Julius Caesar, edited by Hans Orberg.


Time: Tuesday, 2:00-2:55pm CST
