I recommend starting with Classical Latin, simply because there are so many resources available for it. It shouldn't be hard to transition to Medieval/Ecclesiastical Latin after that if you choose.

Yes, all the Latin resources at Textkit are based on Classical Latin. In fact, unless otherwise specified, you can usually assume that when a book or person says "Latin" they mean "Classical Latin".
