A 10,000+ word sequence of Greek and Roman myths adapted from ancient and medieval sources that provides students with extensive reading practice in Latin using appealing subject matter from the earliest stages of learning
Historia Apollonii Regis Tyri Student Edition
The first of several editions intended to bridge the gap between the mythology reader and more complex unadapted ancient and medieval Latin texts. The relatively simple Latin of this short novel allows students to enjoy the engaging plot. Content advisory: there is an incestuous rape in the opening chapters. While it launches the story, its importance to the plot is negligible. Those wishing to avoid it can start on chapter 4.
Aethiopicae Heliodori Historiae Epitome Student Edition
A text with running vocabulary of Martin Kraus’ 1590 CE Latin condensation of Heliodorus’ Greek novel. Aimed at intermediate undergraduate or advanced high school students
Mixed media using xerox art, collage, and ephemera to explore aspects of the ancient and medieval worlds.
Symphonia and Ordo Virtutum
Translations of Hildegard von Bingen’s musical works for Eya Medieval Music Ensemble
Rome Reborn Lesson Plans (forthcoming)
I am currently creating Latin lesson plans for the Rome Reborn apps, which feature 3D models of the ancient city. Plans in development include
a communicative Latin introduction to the architectural features of the Curia Iulia
an exploration of the development of the Colosseum District through the lens of Martial’s De Spectaculis 1-3
an examination of medieval and modern understanding of the Pantheon based on the Mirabilia Urbis Romae
two plans examining epigraphic evidence for life in the ancient city, from the Res Gestae Divi Augusti to evidence for everyday life of non-elite residents of the city.
