 An Author’s Advice on Maximizing the Aural/Oral Components of Latin for the New Millennium
Presenter: Terence Tunberg, Latin for the New Millennium Coauthor, University of Kentucky
Let an accomplished educator and living Latin enthusiast gently walk you through the aural/oral opportunities presented by Latin for the New Millennium, Levels 1 and 2. Coauthor, Dr. Terence Tunberg, will set you at ease as he provides various suggestions and strategies for implementing or enhancing the spoken Latin component of your classes. He will share with you the bounty of aural/oral activities and exercises in the LNM Teacher Manuals and demonstrate how teacher-friendly they are!
Terence Tunberg, coauthor of Latin for the New Millennium, Levels 1 and 2, is a world-renowned Neo-Latinist and scholar of Latin literature through the ages. He is especially esteemed for his enthusiastic promotion of active Latin. The celebrated Conventiculum Latinum Lexintoniense—the Conversational Latin Seminar held each summer at the University of Kentucky—has spawned a network of similar programs across the country.
Tunberg earned his BA and MA in classics at the University of Southern California, did postgraduate research and doctoral work in medieval studies at the University of London, England, and earned a PhD in classical philology from the University of Toronto, Canada. Tunberg is a professor in the Department of Classical Languages and teaches in the Honors Program at the University of Kentucky. Tunberg received a BA and MA in classics from the University of Southern California and a PhD from the University of Toronto. He also studied at the University of London's MA Programme in Medieval Studies and Ancient History. He has published widely on medieval and neo-Latin and is founder of the electronic Latin journal Retiarius.
Tunberg is the coauthor with Milena Minkova of Latin for the New Millennium, Level 1 (Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers, 2008), Latin for the New Millennium, Level 2 (Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers, 2009), and Reading Livy's Rome: Selections from Books I-VI of Livy's Ab Urbe Condita (Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers, 2005); Tunberg is the cotranslator with Jennifer Morrish Tunberg of The Giving Tree in Latin: Arbor Alma (Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers, 2002), Quomodo Invidiosulus nomine Grinchus Christi natalem Abrogaverit: How the Grinch Stole Christmas in Latin (Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers, 1998), and Cattus Petasatus: The Cat in the Hat in Latin (Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers, 2000).
Editor’s Note: The Conventiculum Latinum Lexintoniense is now celebrated twice a year online. Those interested in taking part should contact Professor Tunberg at

Monstrat amor verus patriae: Vergil's Camilla between Italy and Scythia
Presenter: Barbara Weiden Boyd, Bowdoin College, Brunswick, ME

Vergil's complex portrait of Camilla remains an enticing enigma: from her introduction into the Aeneid at the close of the catalogue of Book 7 to the episode in Book 11 that comprises her backstory, her aristeia, and her death, her presence in the poem is both admirable and puzzling. It has long been recognized that the war of Aeneid Books 7–12 is not only refracted through the epic lens but also evokes the still palpable memory of civil war; with this as a point of departure, Boyd explores how the patria for which Camilla’s death provokes such love to fight (monstrat amor uerus patriae, Aeneid 11.892) is to be located on an ideological map somewhere between Italy and Scythia.

Barbara Weiden Boyd, Henry Winkley Professor of Latin and Greek at Bowdoin College, holds a BA from Manhattanville College, and an MA and PhD in Classical Studies from the University of Michigan. In addition to offerings in Greek and Latin languages and literatures, Boyd teaches courses on ancient epic, Rome in the age of Augustus, Rome as a site of cultural memory and identity, and the Ovidian tradition. She has chaired the Classics Department repeatedly and has served as a co-director of the Mellon Initiative in Mediterranean Studies at Bowdoin.

Her scholarly specialization is Latin poetry, especially the works of Vergil and Ovid. She has published widely on a variety of Roman writers, including Vergil, Propertius, Tibullus, Ovid, and Sallust. In addition to continuing work on a commentary on Ovid's Remedia amoris, she has recently published a book on Ovid's reception of Homer: Ovid's Homer: Authority, Repetition, and Reception (Oxford University Press, 2017). She has a lively interest in contemporary receptions of classical themes and has published articles on the BBC-HBO series Rome and on the Odyssey theme in the AMC series Mad Men. She is currently developing a project on Nathaniel Hawthorne's Rome.

Boyd has traveled and studied extensively in Italy, where she lived for two years while teaching at the Intercollegiate Center for Classical Studies in Rome. She is a former member of the Board of Directors of the Society for Classical Studies and its Goodwin Award Committee, and currently serves on its Program Committee. She serves as president of the Vergilian Society and is a charter member of the newly established International Ovidian Society. Boyd is a former chair and consultant for the AP Latin Test Development Committee of the Educational Testing Service.

Boyd has also authored a textbook for intermediate Latin students, Vergil's Aeneid: Selections from Books 1, 2, 4, 6, 10, & 12 (Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers, 2001) and its revised edition Vergil's Aeneid: Selected Readings from Books 1, 2, 4, and 6 (Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers, 2012). Her other Bolchazy-Carducci publications include Vergil's Aeneid: Expanded Collection, Vergil's Aeneid: 8 & 11: Italy and Rome, Vergil's Aeneid: 10 & 12: Pallas & Turnus. Boyd is the coauthor with Katherine Bradley of A Vergil Workbook, Second Edition (Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers, 2012).

B-C Roman Calendar
Image of 2021-2022 Roman Calendar
Bolchazy-Carducci’s 2021–2022 Roman Calendar spotlights select images from our new nonfiction Latin reader series, Explore Latin. Each book in the series provides an immersive introduction to a topic related to the ancient world—entirely in Latin! Straightforward descriptions and simple labels reveal intriguing details about Roman life and culture. The copious colorful images that accompany the text bring the Latin words to life.

Explore Latin: Avēs draws readers into the world of birds in a Roman setting, from crows and peacocks to owls and geese. Birds—perhaps pets—often made their way into funerary contexts (see September’s mummy shroud of a boy with a bird on his shoulder and October’s grave stele of a young woman with a goose). Fierce birds might have military associations; November’s Athenian black-figure jar shows a warrior carrying a rooster-emblazoned shield. Birds also had deep religious significance. Gods and goddesses were often linked to a particular bird: the peacock (December) was associated with Hera/Juno and the owl with Athena/Minerva (January). Birds were messengers of the gods, imparting inscrutable meanings known only to special priests known as augurs. Crows (February) were one such messenger bird.

Explore Latin: Lūdī Scaenicī delves into a very different facet of Roman life, theater. It nonetheless underscores the pervasiveness of religion throughout Roman culture: a litany of gods and goddesses were both associated with the theatrical arts and worshipped during the lūdī scaenicī. Of the nine muses, goddesses of the arts, two were particularly devoted to theater: Melpomene (March) to tragedy and Thalia to comedy. Temples might be incorporated into theaters, such as the temple of Venus (see April’s statuette of the goddess) that formed one part of the theater of Pompey. In addition to touching on the architecture of theaters (May’s Theater of Epidaurus), this title also looks at key authors (June’s Menander), features of Roman actors (July), and stock figures in comedy (August).

Each Explore Latin text focuses on establishing a basic, foundational Latin vocabulary surrounding its given topic. Because artwork conveys much of the meaning, even novice learners will find these books readily comprehensible. Repetition of words and ideas, reinforced by imagery, aids in vocabulary acquisition and prepares learners to read lengthier stories in the reated Encounter Latin novella series (see p. 31).

Explore Latin: Avēs by Emma Vanderpool is now available. Use alongside Vanderpool’s augury-themed novellas or as a standalone text. Explore Latin: Lūdī Scaenicī by Christopher Bungard will be released in Fall 2021, with his theater-focused novellas to follow.

Editor’s Note
Well, by now, most students have begun this year’s Latin and Greek studies. I always chuckle at the start of school when I remember that I accidentally learned that school began before Labor Day! Having grown up in the Boston area, I was accustomed to starting school after Labor Day. Those early days of my teaching came to mind the other day when a former student from the Class of 1980 Loyola Academy mentioned attending his reunion. That year I had the privilege of teaching ten students the old AP Vergil curriculum. We had established a healthy rapport and sense of community the previous year together in Honors Latin 3. This fabulous group of students enthusiastically formed an intramural basketball team—Vergil’s Vanguard. The team led the league both in basketball and in cumulative average. In those days, class rank was based on the average cumulative grade point in the class—rooted in the premise that the level of aggregate accomplishment raised the level of achievement. The higher the average class cumulative, the higher weighting the grade in that class received. Weighted averages then determined rank in class. Eventually, we changed to a more readily understandable system of so many points for an AP class, for an honors class, etc.
Recent excavations in my home study brought these artifacts to light. The Vergil’s Vanguard t-shirts were proudly worn by these ten talented AP Vergil students. Their magister is on the far left of the front row.  
As mentioned in last month’s issue, we are pleased to present the first of seven Latin stories as this month’s Teaching Tip. The others will appear in the course of the year interspersed with three teaching tips from Lynne West, whose insights we have shared for the past few years. While written with Latin for the New Millennium in mind, these Latin stories will be a welcome addition to all beginning Latin classes. As you’ll see, we provide a PDF version for you to use to make copies for your students.
This Latin story introduces Camilla, who appears in Aeneid 11, as a youngster. Coincidentally, you’ll note on the fall 2021 webinar roster that Vergil scholar and textbook author Barbara Weiden Boyd will present a webinar on Camilla in December. Do take advantage of our webinars. B-C is proud to note that we have been offering this complimentary program of professional development for classics teachers for over a decade!
All good wishes,

Teaching Tip: A Latin Story to Accompany Latin for the New Millennium, Level 1, Review 1
This is the first in a series of stories to accompany each of the reviews in LNM 1. Here follows the principles author Emma Vanderpool employs while composing these stories.
While constructing these stories, I had in mind Anne Groton and James M. May’s Thirty-Eight Latin Stories (Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers, fifth edition, 1995), which provides supplementary readings for Wheelock’s Latin. As such, these review stories will be primarily limited to the vocabulary and grammatical structures of the unit (and prior units). Any vocabulary that has not previously been introduced in Latin for the New Millennium will be provided and glossed following the format in LNM. The stories, approximately 250–300 words in length, themselves will initially draw inspiration from classical sources and later from medieval and Renaissance sources. I hope that these extended narratives will help serve both to reinforce the relevant unit’s vocabulary and grammar and provide students with additional mythological and historical information.
While complementary to LNM, the stories can serve all first-year Latin students.
Metabus et fīlia Camilla  
This story describes the origins of the heroine Camilla. Her father, Metabus, was the king of the Volsci, one of the Italian tribes that lived south of the city of Rome. Metabus, removed from his throne, must flee. Cornered by the Volsci, Metabus must seek help from Diana, the goddess of wild animals and the forest.
Metabus nauta nōn est; in aquā nōn nāvigat. Poēta nōn est; fābulās nōn nārrat. Metabus rēx est. 
Metabus fīliam habet. Fīlia est Camilla. Metabus fīliam amat et cūrat. 
Metabus timet. Volscī Metabum et fīliam necāre parant. Itaque Metabus et fīlia ā patriā ambulant. 
In agrīs Metabus cum fīliā diū ambulat. Metabus virōs nōn videt. In silvīs, Metabus cum fīliā ambulat. Ad rīvum ambulat. Deinde Metabus virōs videt. Metabus Volscōs valdē timet! 
Metabus fīliam valdē amat et bene cūrat. Metabus Camillam tenet et vōcat: “Ō Diāna! Diāna! Ego meam fīliam amō! Ō Diāna! Amā et cūrā meam Camillam!” 
Diāna dea silvārum est; in silvīs habitat. Diāna puellās curat. 
Dea Diāna Volscōs nōn timet. Itaque Metabus Diānae (to Diana) fīliam dat. 
Posteā Diāna Camillam bene cūrat. Camilla Diānam valdē amat. Camilla et Diāna nōn in casā habitant. In silvīs habitant! Dea et puella āthlētae sunt; in silvīs ambulant.
Vocabula Nova:
ā: from 
dat: gives 
dea, deae, f. (subject): goddess 
Diāna, Diānae, f. (subject): goddess of the forest and the hunt 
diū: for a long time
meam (direct object): my

About the Author
Emma Vanderpool has taught Latin at the university, middle school, and high school levels—currently at the Springfield Honors Academy in Massachusetts. Vanderpool earned her Bachelor of Arts in Latin, Classics, and History from Monmouth College in Illinois and her Master of Arts in Teaching Classical Humanities from the University of Massachusetts in Amherst. She serves as a state rep for CANE, as an executive board member of Ascanius, and as an organizer for Our Voices and Lupercal. Vanderpool is the recipient of a Distinguished Teaching Award from UMASS Amherst and was honored as the Lincoln Laureate for Monmouth College. She has self-published ten novellae. Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers is pleased to have had Vanderpool launch our novella series with Explore Latin: Aves and the first two titles for the Encounter Latin series—Augury is for the Birds: Marcus de Avibus Discit and Under His Father's Wing: Marcus de Auguribus Discit.
Teachers & Students Love B-C Novella Series
Designed to engage and delight novice and intermediate learners, these Latin readers use limited, high-frequency vocabulary and copious images to support comprehension. The debut titles in the Explore Latin and Encounter Latin series focus on the world of Roman augury—entirely in Latin!

The nonfiction text Explore Latin: Avēs offers an immersive introduction to the significance of birds in Roman culture and religion. This “pre-reader” pairs perfectly with the Encounter Latin novella, Augury Is for the Birds, which delves deeper into the ins and outs of augury and its role in ancient Rome. The second novella in the Vanderpool series on augury, Under His Father’s Wing: Marcus de Auguribus Discit, reached shelves in June. Have these books graced your classroom?

This fall sees the launch of the second B-C novella series with Professor Christopher Bungard’s Explore Latin book, Ludi Scaenici
Great gifts for the young Latin learner in your life!
Marvelous reading resources for your Latin 1 classroom!
Editor's Note: CANE Wiencke Teaching Award Winner Matthew Katsenes has developed a directrix legendi for Augury Is for the Birds: Marcus de Avibus Discit.
