Commentaries on Latin Letters

Ultimately, the goal of this project is to expand beyond UVM. Stoa.org has indicated an interest in e-publishing this project once it reaches sufficient size.

1. The UVM Student Commentaries

These commentaries provide full vocabulary lists and rather complete comments on grammar. Translation is eschewed in favor of describing the grammar of difficult passages.

Most of these commentaries started out as assignments in Latin classes at the University of Vermont. Prof. Jacques Bailly revised the students' versions. He takes full responsibility for (and would like to hear about) the mistakes that remain (contact him at jbailly@zoo.uvm.edu). If you want to submit your own class's commentaries on letters, please contact Dr. Bailly about the process.

2. The UVM Commentaries

The following letters have been submitted to J. Bailly, anonymously reviewed by qualified scholars, and revised prior to posting. Further submissions should be e-mailed to jacques.bailly@uvm.edu.
