We are happy to announce that the Italian Institute for Classical Studies, in collaboration with the prestigious Pontificium Institutum Altioris Latinitatis, has confirmed Lingua Ecclesiae: the first intensive summer course directed specifically toward Ecclesiastics, and conducted entirely in Latin.
Our students – priests, seminarians, consecrated persons and religious – coming from many Dioceses of the Catholic Church, will gather in Rome from September 2 through 28, 2019. They will be hosted in a religious facility, allowing them to make use of the Latin language as their only language of communication throughout the day for their entire month of stay.
This second edition of Lingua Ecclesiae has already received the registrations of about 40 students from all over the world and in a few days registration will close.
Students will be able to follow courses on Lingua Latina, Latinitas Canonica, Latinitas Liturgica e Latinitas Patristica and will be provided with daily assistance for personal study.
Upon completion of the course, they will have attained the competencies needed to read any text from the tradition of the Church in the original Latin.
Those who pass the final exam will be attributed 25 ECTS credits.
