Medieval Latin Reading Group

The Medieval Latin Reading Group (MLRG) has existed at Yale for several years. Its primary functions are to help students to practice the reading skills necessary for research in the medieval and early modern worlds and to prepare for the Medieval Latin reading exam. Readings are proposed by the group’s participants and come from genres as diverse as schoolbook exercises, theological commentaries, saints’ lives, historiography, and poetry. Most of the time is spent reading and translating, as well as discussing the peculiarities of Medieval Latin. Students of all Latin skill levels and learning backgrounds are welcome to attend.

Meetings will be held weekly on Wednesday afternoons at the Humanities Quadrangle while classes are in session.
