 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
Dear Colleagues,
Autumn with its vivacious display of colors, especially here in beautiful Maine, has always been my favorite season. Once upon a time, while serving as a high school associate principal, it was my great pleasure to spend the holiday weekend (it’s been Indigenous Peoples Day for three years here in Maine) in the beautiful coastal artist colony of Ogunquit. Our hotel room was carefully chosen for its view of the Atlantic and was always reserved a year in advance. Who would have known that Maine would now be my home? I hope the holiday weekend afforded you some special time with your family and friends.
The story about wild boars ravaging Rome found in this issue’s Classics Tidbits immediately brought me back to my Latin III classes as we traditionally began the year reading Petronius’s account of Trimalchio’s opulent dinner party. And, that reminiscing then led your editor on a little internet search. Here, I offer the fruits of that search. Suzette Field provides an overview of the famous dinner party. The description is excerpted from her book A Curious Invitation, which features forty of the greatest fictional festivities. I think you will also enjoy the two selections by Gary Devore in which he discusses connections between the Petronius original and Fellini’s Satyricon—on the first course and on the second course.
As you consider doing something related to Halloween in Latin class, perhaps you’ll read the ghost story or share the memento mori moment from the Satyricon.
If you’re not familiar with B-C’s Distance Learning Page, do check it out. I encourage you to use it as a resource, if not for your regular class, for those “beloved” lesson plans when you have to miss class.
All good wishes,
Don Sprague

Teaching Tip: A Latin Story to Accompany Latin for the New Millennium, Level 1, Review 2
This is the second 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.
Cloelia et Lars Porsena

Etrūscī castra nōn longē ā Rōmā habent quod bellum contrā Rōmānōs gerunt. Lars Porsena rēx Etrūscōrum est. Rēx Rōmānos timet quod Rōmānus vir, Gāius Mūcius Scaevola, castra intrāre poterat. Cōnsilium magnum ā rēge parātur. Iubet virōs armātōs Rōmam ambulāre et epistulam Rōmānīs dare.
In epistulā est foedus. Propter foedus, Rōmānī Lartem Porsenam malum vocant. Ē foedere Lars Porsena X puerōs Rōmānōs et X puellās Rōmānās exspectat.
Familiae Rōmānae timent et dolent sed puellās et puerōs Etrūscīs dant. Multae puellae et multī puerī lacrimās dant et dolent. Puellae et puerī nōn in vinculīs sunt quod sunt multī magnī et armātī Etrūscī virī.
In tenebrīs, puellae et puerī in terrā iacent. Puella, Cloelia, nōn timet sed auxilium dat. Cloelia animōs firmat et multās fābulās dē multīs fēminīs Rōmānīs narrat. Fēminae Rōmānae dē vitīs nōn timent; Rōmam servant!
In castrīs Cloelia et Rōmānae puellae nōn manent sed ad Rōmam fugiunt. Armātōs Etrūscōs nōn timent; per rīvum natant. Via longa nōn est quod castra Etrūscorum nōn longē ā Rōmā sunt. Familiās in casīs vident et multum gaudium est!
Lars Porsena īrātus est. Dē puellīs cogitat et iubet virōs epistulam Rōmānīs dare. In epistulā, Etrūscī bellum nōn gerunt. Rēx autem Cloeliam manēre in castrīs cupit.
Etrūscī domum intrant et epistulam familiae Cloeliae dant. Familia misera est! Cloelia cum familiā nōn manet sed animum firmat. Puella ad castra Etrūscōrum ambulat. Quod rēx puellam habet, Etrūscī bellum contrā Rōmānōs nōn gerunt.
Cloelia praeclāra est quod Rōmam servat. Rōmānī Cloeliam in memoriā semper tenent. Rōmānī fābūlās nārrant. Rōmānī puerōs et puellās dē exemplīs docent. Cloelia exemplum puellīs est.

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.
