Lingua Latina: Pars II: Roma Aeterna

Hans Ørberg's Lingua Latina per se Illustrata is the world's premiere series for learning Latin via the Natural Method. The Natural Method encourages students to learn Latin without resorting to translation, but instead by teaching them to think in the language: students first learn grammar and vocabulary inductively through extended contextual reading and an ingenious system of marginal notes. Lingua Latina per se Illustrata is also the most popular series for those teachers at both the secondary and collegiate levels who wish to develop Latin conversational skills in the classroom.

Roma Aeterna (the main book of Pars II of the Lingua Latina per se illustrata series) introduces some of the most celebrated authors of Roman antiquity through the lens of Roman literature and mythology. A vivid description of the city's monuments precedes a prose retelling of the first four books of Virgil's Aeneid, with many of the most famous passages in their original verse form. The selection from Virgil is followed by Book One of Livy's engaging mythical history of Rome's foundation. The prose selections are judiciously chosen and, in the first few chapters, gently adapted to provide students with attest that is authentically Latin and yet not difficult. The unadapted selections which make up the majority of the text are taken from Aulus Gellius, Ovid, Nepos, Sallust, and Horace. These annotated selections make Roma Aeterna useful both as the next step after Familia Romana and as a survey of Latin literature in its own right.

Lingua Latina: A Companion to Roma Aeterna
Based on Hans Ørberg's Instructions, with Vocabulary and Grammar

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.

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.

About the Authors:

Hans Henning Ørberg (1920-2010) received his MA in English, French and Latin from the University of Copenhagen in 1946. He taught at various Danish high schools until 1963 and at the Grenaa Gymansium until 1988. From 1953 to 1961 he served on the staff of the Nature Method Institute, Copenhagen. He is the author of the Latin course "Lingua Latina secundum naturae rationem explicata" (1955-56); the course was revised in 1990-91, with a number of supplements, under the title "Lingua Latina per se illustrata". His books were published by Domus Latina, a publishing house he founded in Denmark, and they are distributed in the English speaking world by Focus Publishing.

Jeanne Marie Neumann is Professor of Classics at Davidson College, where she has taught Latin, Greek, and Classical Civilization since 1994, and was awarded the College’s most distinguished teaching award in 2005. She has conducted numerous seminars and workshops for Latin teachers at all levels of instruction, and has received national recognition for her educational outreach.
