The Renaissance Latin Workshop at Penn

Time: Wednesdays 3:30 – 4:30 p.m.
Place: College Hall, 319B

The Latin language is a passport to the culture of the Renaissance. It was the primary medium for the transmission of learning until that period, and remained so for centuries afterward.

This workshop convenes graduate students and scholars of the Penn community to translate significant Renaissance texts whose language conceals them from most modern audiences. We meet weekly in an informal, convivial setting to build our skills of translation and paleography and to enjoy reading post-classical Latin texts together. The workshop is moderated by History Professor Ann Moyer, Director Emerita of the Renaissance Society of America.

Please contact Dan Cheely ( if you would like to receive announcements for the group.
