LATINITAS ET DOCTRINARUM ORBIS

Magnum ergo latini sermonis sacramentum est, magnum profecto numen
quod apud peregrinos, apud barbaros, apud hostes,
sancte ac religiose per tot saecula custoditur.
L. Valla, Elegantiae, preface.

Too often we have a tendency to relegate Latin to antiquity, forgetting that after the fall of the Roman empire, for 1500 years, the language of Rome was the language of culture and encounters between diverse people and fields.
Through this series of events, under the meaningful title of Latinitas et doctrinarum orbis, we want to reveal the many connections between Latin and the modern age.
The lectures will be held in Latin according to the schedule provided below, and will last 45 minutes. At the end of the session, participants will have fifteen minutes to ask questions.
