Quick Overview

A sequel to her widely used A Companion to Familia Romana (now in its second edition), Jeanne Marie Neumann's A Companion to Roma Aeterna offers a running commentary, in English, of the Latin grammar covered in Hans H. Ørberg's Roma Aeterna, and includes the complete text of the Ørberg ancillaries Grammatica Latina and Latin–English Vocabulary II. It also serves as a substitute for Ørberg’s Instructions, on which it is based.


"Jeanne Marie Neumann’s A Companion to Roma Aeterna provides students, instructors, and homeschoolers with a treasure trove of learning that will enable them to fully benefit from Ørberg’s absurdly underused Roma Aeterna."  —James Dobreff, Department of Classics and Religious Studies, UMass Boston


"In using Ørberg's Roma Aeterna students undertake the daunting task of reading Latin containing advanced and complex grammatical concepts without the aid of any English explanations or assistance. Neumann’s companion text regularly serves as a welcome relief and periodically as a necessary crutch in the task. Using the two texts in coordination with each other is a highly effective method for learning Latin, maximizing the strengths and minimizing the weaknesses of Ørberg’s "Natural Method." In the end it all boils down to this: Roma Aeterna will successfully teach students to read Latin, and Companion to Roma Aeterna will help those students understand the complex grammatical and syntactical concepts that underlie the Latin language."  —Michael Holstead, in The NECTFL Review

Though designed especially for those approaching Roma Aeterna at an accelerated pace, this volume will be useful to anyone seeking an explicit exposition of that volume’s implicitly presented grammar. In addition to many revisions of the text, A Companion to Roma Aeterna also includes new units on cultural context, tied to the narrative content of the chapter.
