Baccalaureatus

Postby Benedarius » Sat Jun 18, 2011 11:05 pm

I recently attended a graduation, and as is traditional, it's conducted in Latin. However, I've previously heard bachelor as baccalaureus, never baccalaureatus as in this ceremony. Any one happen to know why? I can't seem to find it in the OLD either.

I'm writing in Latin hoping for correction, and not because I'm confident in how I express myself. Latinè scribo ut ab omnibus corrigar, non quod confidenter me exprimam.
