1) Which would be the easiest language to learn for a Swede with English as a second language?
2) Which language do you think I will have more use of?
3) If you learn any Latin, is it possible to read anything from antiquity to the renaissance or is there a learning threshold to each of the phases?
4) If I were to try to learn both, which should I start with?
Would it be confusing to learn both at the same time?

to be able to read philosophers work and some of the ancient plays, poems and novels. Also, as I'm interested in food history, to be able to read historical cookbooks and documents could be useful (most are probably in latin).
