The Warburg Institute offers online courses in late Medieval and Renaissance Latin in 2021-2022 at beginner, intermediate and advanced level, designed to train students to read and understand late Medieval and Renaissance documents. Depending on level, these classes will focus on vocabulary acquisition, grammar and syntax, and the forms commonly used by medieval and early modern texts. Students will be encouraged to consider the evolution of Latinity and to read the language with greater confidence.

You can book your place for the appropriate class below. If you are unsure of your level of proficiency in Latin, please contact warburg@sas.ac.uk to ask for a placement test.
