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
Articles 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.
Community & Latin..Societas & Lingua Latina
Latinitium is, as it stands, mostly the work of two people in their spare time and is so far funded by the efforts and earnings of a Latin teacher writing his dissertation.
We are inviting members of the Latin community to bring their expertise, passion and support to help us keep producing materials for Latin learners and teachers.
VIDEOS IN LATIN..SPectacula Latina
Latinitium's videos treat subjects from history and literature to particular expressions. 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.
Spectacula quae apud Latinitium edimus, argumenta varia velut historiam, litteras Latinas, locutiones tractant. Spectacula omnino Latina sunt.
Ad spectacula vox, quae depromi potest, et verba transcripta accedunt.
Here we publish carefully prepared recordings of short Latin texts representing a wide variety of Latin authors (from antiquity to modern times). These 1-5 minutes recordings of short Latin texts are perfect for listening to in spare moments.
The articles on Latinitium, by myself and others, treat various subjects such as expressions and idiom, particularly useful books, Latin literature, methodology and anything Latin related. ..
Hic ego et alii scribimus de variis rebus velut, de locutionibus, libris apprime utilibus, litteris Latinis, rationibus viisque, denique de quibuslibet rebus ad linguam Latinam pertinentibus.
