Latinitium is a platform for anyone wanting to learn to read and speak Latin. We regularly create and publish material for learning Latin:
Audio/video podcast in Latin
Blog on learning Latin, history, literature and more
Under Resources you will find a vast number of resources, from easy texts to online dictionaries. There is also a selection of Latin prose and poetry readings. Latinitium was founded and is operated by Daniel Pettersson who is doing his PhD in Latin and teaches Latin at Stockholm University in Sweden.
QUID LATINITIUM SIT
Latinitium est locus qui Latine loqui, scribere, legere volentibus conditus est, ubi usque subsidia ad linguam Latinam discendam et docendam confecta edimus, quo in genere sunt:
- Series seu Podcast quae spectari et auscultari potest.
- Commentarii cum de aliis tum de lingua Latina discenda, rebus gestis, litteris Latinis.
Sub vocabulo subsidiorum multa subsidia omne genus (scripta facilia, lexica, alia multa) inveniuntur. Accedunt opera Latina numeris adstricta et soluta recitata. Latinitium conditum est a Daniel Pettersson qui in Universitate Stockholmiensi in Suetia doctorandi studia agit et linguam Latinam docet.
As recently as a few decades ago, the world considered Latin long dead and buried. Since then, however, a vibrant community of living Latinists has sprung up, spanning continents and generations. By visiting Latinitium, you’ve made that community even stronger.
We want Latinitium to become its own community, an online center where we living Latinists can gather to celebrate our progress. We’d love it if you became an active part of our efforts, whether by helping us with some of the content creation, proofreading, or just spreading the word so that more and more Latinists around the world—teachers and students alike—can learn, thrive, and grow.
You can also support us through Patreon (patreon.com/latinitium); if you like, to show our appreciation, we’ll give you exclusive access to additional articles, MP3s, and videos. Our work on the site is time-consuming and unpaid, and the more you support us, the more we’ll be able to contribute to you, to the community we share with you, and to Latin.
Crescat, vigescat, floreat Latinitas!
VIDEOS IN LATIN..SPectacula Latina
Latinitium’s video podcast treats a wide range of subjects, from idioms to literature, all in Latin..Spectacula omnino Latina quae sunt de Locutionibus, Historia, litteris Latinis, aliis rebus.
Latinitium's video podcast treats various subjects, ranging from history and random subjects to particular expressions, literature and tips for learning Latin. The podcast is all in Latin. The difficulty varies with the subjects but overall we've tried to keep it at an intermediate level.
Most videos come with a downloadable audio file and a transcript.

Ad spectacula vox, quae depromi potest, et verba transcripta accedunt.
