HIS314: Roman History for Latin Students

Similar in scope to HIS204, this course will be taken simultaneously with LAT220 and provides a deeper historical background to the authors that students will read in second-year Latin and beyond,

Similar in scope to HIS204, this course will be taken simultaneously with LAT220 and provides a deeper historical background to the authors that students will read in second-year Latin and beyond, namely Caesar, Cicero and Vergil. Readings for HIS314 will be drawn more heavily from primary sources than readings for HIS204, and students will also be reading Latin versions of sources that are relevant to HIS314 in LAT220. Students must register for both LAT220 and HIS314, which will meet in two separate formats with two different teachers, and students will receive two term credits. Students who have taken HIS204 may not take this course.
