Lingua Ecclesiae


Vision

Language acquisition is an essential component of any form of academic research. In the Ancient Christian discipline, there are two types of language categories: Ancient and Modern languages. The ancient languages, at least, comprise of Greek, Latin, Hebrew, Coptic, Syriac, and Aramaic. The modern languages, at least, for the academic study of ancient Christian scholarship consist of German, Italian, French, and some Slavonic.

Lingua Ecclesiae seeks to assist students in the beginning process of ancient language acquisition. Thus, we will move towards a rudimentary knowledge of these ancient and modern research languages for the purposes of academic research.

We will offer two types of study groups. During the Spring and Fall terms, new language and grammar acquisition will be our focus. During the Summer and Winter, we will offer Greek and Latin reading groups whereby we will read ancient texts in the original language and hear lectures from scholars around the world.

2016 Schedule

Winter: St. Patrick - Confessio (Latin) (Register)

Spring: Coptic in 20 Lessons: Introduction to Sahidic Coptic with Exercises & Vocabularies by Bently Layton with selected Coptic readings from The Apocryphal Gospels: Texts and Translations by Bart Ehrman (Register)
