There are good Latin curriculum choices out there. At the same time, they don’t necessarily include Latin from specifically Lutheran traditions and sources. Hence, I’ve started to compile a) places to start so that Latin-learners can broach translation work with some familiar Lutheran texts, b) supplemental religious memory work to introduce familiar Lutheran phrases and texts to our Latin students, and c) a little advice along the way.
This is a printable PDF with links. It does not include grammar charts or explanations. It doesn’t even necessarily translate. It is, however, still very user friendly, even to those without much experience in Latin, and it does feature the following:
- Suggested Resources
- Supplemental Religious Memory Work
- A Little Word Vocabulary Help
- Latin text of the Creeds
- Three of the most common Latin hymn texts
- “A Mighty Fortress” translated into Latin
- The O Antiphons in Latin
Also, if you ever wonder if I’ve learned about anything else, just come back and download it again. Once purchased you should have access to this “Co-op or Classroom Use” product, even if I’ve updated it, for 365 days. You are free to make however many photocopies you’d like. Obviously, if you download it and print it for years, I can’t check. 🙂 Still, a laborer is worth his hire.
Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum!
