“There has been a move in education away from reading original works to reading commentaries about those works. By studying the Latin language, students will progress toward being able to read works by the great writers of history – Julius Caesar, Virgil, Augustine of Hippo, and Thomas Aquinas, among many others. From there they will be able to consider the original words of these great thinkers, and not merely the translations of someone else.”
