Latin was the language spoken and spread by the ancient Romans from the III century B.C. Although the Roman Empire ‘fell’ around the IV century A.D., the Latin language was able to survive thanks to the rise and spread of the Christian Church thus becoming the Lingua Franca of European academia for almost a millennium. For centuries Latin has been taught in universities and schools in Europe not only as a means for expressing and articulating scientific knowledge, but also as a means for understanding the roots of Western Civilisation. LAN102 is the continuation of LAN101 and will continue instructing students on the morphology of the Latin language.
