Course Description

La letteratura latina dal I secolo d.c va spiegata sicuramente alla luce delle direttive letterarie precedenti ma dando anche spazio a quelle problematiche che in questa epoca vanno radicalizzandosi quali l'idea dell'identità romana, il rapporto con il diverso, il relazionarsi con popoli altri; fenomeni che divengono particolarmente significativi nel tardo antico.

L'uso del passato rinforza, da sempre, le diverse identità regionali e crea un senso di appartenenza ad una comune Romanitas. Per capire come questa 'doppia' identità funzioni è necessario leggere con attenzione gli scrittori latini tardi, studiare come essi si relazionino con i grandi auctores, come l’altro, il diverso, il barbaro vengano disegnati nelle loro pagine.

Evitando naturalmente anacronismi riflettendo attraverso le pagine della letteratura dell’epoca, espressione di una società multiculturale e inclusiva quale quella romana, possiamo trarre suggestioni int...

Evitando naturalmente anacronismi riflettendo attraverso le pagine della letteratura dell’epoca, espressione di una società multiculturale e inclusiva quale quella romana, possiamo trarre suggestioni interessanti circa i concetti di Alterità e Convivenza quali si formano nell'immaginario dell'uomo occidentale.
 


Latin literature in the Post-Augustan period

Latin literature in the I century AD needs to be explained in the light of the literary currents that preceded it. But it is also important to focus on those issues which were taking root at that time – the idea of a Roman identity, cultural diversity and relating to different peoples; phenomena that become particularly significant in late Antiquity.

Reference to the past was always used to reinforce regional identity, and a sense of belonging to the Romanitas community. To understand how this “dual” identity worked, we need to study Latin writers from the late Antiquity, and see how they relate to other authors, and how they handle the descriptions of diverse peoples and barbarians in their works.

Avoiding anachronisms, we will use our study of Latin literature as an expression of a multicultural and inclusive Roman society to draw interesting conclusions about the concepts of Otherness and Coexistence that are relevant to Western populations today.

Importantly I have found the Professor's enthusiastic approach to his subject refreshing. The projects are not dry dusty history. He brings alive the subject matter and leads us to inquire.

Excellent course, well paced and well balanced between history and paleography. Excellent resources and materials. Quizzes made me reflect in some of the material that I studied. The final project was challenging as well as a lot of fun! I am excited to continue with the next course.

Fascinating and rewarding. The history of the period leading upto the latin exercises laid the groundwork. I had struggled, that the latinexercises were broken into three sections: beginners, intermediate and advanced. Keep up the great, totalling absorbing work . Looking forward to the next episode.

This course is engagingly presented. Its real highlight is the way it helps learners gain confidence in deciphering medieval and Latin documents, and in so doing to contribute to further research on Latin

Unfortunately I was unable to complete the course due to family commitments but found it so very informative and well laid out. I am pleased to be able to look at the course work I could not do at a later stage and when time permits enrol again. I have studied a Latin course through you which again was excellent, so have given your details to several friends for distance learning. Thank you.
