Latin Intensive Program to Aid Priests, Religious, and Seminarians in August 2013

Sunday, May 5th, 2013

From August 4-10, 2013, Belmont Abbey College will host Veterum Sapientia, an intensive week-long ecclesiastical Latin program aimed largely at priests, religious, and seminarians. The program will offer a unique, guided exploration of the most important categories of writing that make up the Church’s Latin patrimony, with exercises ordered toward helping participants grow in their understanding of the mechanics of the language and internalize new vocabulary through active use. Staff will include head instructor Fr. Reginald Foster, who served as chief Vatican Latinist for nearly 40 years and is arguably the best Latinist in the world.
