Hi. I'm a new user, making my obligatory first post. I'm a philosophy PhD looking to deepen my knowledge of Latin. I've some knowledge of the language - and of Greek - but now that I've completed my program I've decided to devote some time to bringing my Latin up to where I want it to be. I look forward to many future conversations here. :D

Hi Shenoute. Personally, Caesar, Tacitus, Suetonius, Livy, Cicero and perhaps also Virgil. Far less so the Latin poets and dramatists. Professionally, it would be useful for me to develop my talents with Early Modern European Latin with a focus on philosophical works. There may be some opportunities for translation at some point.
