about

Now in its third edition, Traditio: An Introduction to the Latin Language and Its Influence has firmly established its excellence as a textbook, whether for use in a full-year course or in a more intensive program of study. The text is designed to enable students to learn Latin as quickly as possible and at the same time to gain familiarity with the culture in which the language was spoken and used. The best way to achieve these twin goals is through direct acquaintance with the actual texts that have influenced thought and art through the centuries. Reading short works in the original language, to the extent that the chapter level allows, opens a window on ancient culture, even as it makes the language itself more vivid.

Chapters follow a regular pattern, presenting grammar first, followed by exercises and vocabulary. Pre-reading and reading sections reinforce the newly learned grammatical constructions and introduce new vocabulary words.

Traditio: An Introduction to the Latin Language and Its Influence is an indispensable text for introductory Latin courses at the college level.
PATRICIA A. JOHNSTON is a professor of classical studies at Brandeis University, where she has taught Latin, Greek, and Classics courses since 1975.
