Editions for Students
Mittel- und Neulatein macht Schule!
Mittel- und Neulatein macht Schule! initiated by the Abteilung für Lateinische Philologie des Mittelalters und der Neuzeit and the Zentrum für Mittelalter- und Frühneuzeitforschung at Georg-August-Universität Göttingen and supported by the Neulateinischen Gesellschaft.
A collection of longer and shorter texts (excerpts) from various regions and periods (10th through 17th cent), in various genres, and by a diversity of writers, including women, presented with vocabulary, short introductions including an author biography and a bibliography for further reading
The Neo-Latin anthology compiled by the Society for Neo-Latin Studies is for the use of teachers of Latin everywhere. The range of texts and authors will be particularly valuable to tutors, students and researchers working on Neo-Latin sources. The anthology includes texts of varying levels of difficulty, so that individual tutors can select texts for their own pedagogical purposes. The aim is to create as diverse and wide-ranging an anthology as possible: prose, epic, pastoral, lyric, satirical and panegyric texts are included, ranging from the fifteenth to the twentieth century.
Project Nota – Latin letters and works of famous women founded by Sophia He (junior) and middle and high school Latin teacher in Sandusky, Ohio Laura Petersen.
Relying on volunteers ‘with diverse skills and perspectives, this project provides educational resources for Latin texts written by women including digitized editions of the Latin texts and translations into languages such as English, French, and Spanish. Students can also become members of Project Nota by taking part in the gathering, editing, and translating of these works.
