The title of this series of Latin books is Ecce Romani, which means "Look! The Romans!" The books in the series will present the Romans to you as you learn the Latin language that they spoke. At first you will meet the members of a Roman family; Latin is the language they use to communicate among themselves. As you continue reading you will meet mythological and historical characters that meant much to the Romans and remain part of our cultural heritage today. You will be introduced to a vast and colorful world of ancient Mediterranean and European civilizations that included peoples who spoke many different languages, and you will meet people of many different cultures and social levels, ranging from slaves to emperors. You will read passages from many ancient Roman writers and thus come into direct communication with the ancient Romans themselves. - Introduction.

Hans Oerberg's Lingua Latina per se illustrata is the world's premiere series for learning Latin via the Natural Method. Students first learn grammar and vocabulary intuitively through extended contextual reading and an innovative system of marginal notes. It is the only textbook currently available that gives students the opportunity to learn Latin without resorting to translation, but allows them to think in the language. It is also the most popular text for teachers, at both the secondary and collegiate levels, who wish to incorporate conversational skills into their classroom practice. The second of two volumes in the series Lingua Latina per se illustrata, Roma Aeterna introduces the most celebrated authors of antiquity through the lens of Roman history. A vivid description of the city's monuments precedes a prose retelling of the first four books of Virgil's Aeneid, with many of the most famous passages in their original verse form. The selection from Virgil is followed by Book One of Livy's engaging mythical history of Rome's foundation. The prose selections are judiciously chosen and, in the first few chapters, gently adapted to provide students with attest that is authentically Latin and yet not difficult. The unadapted selections which make up the majority of the text are taken from Aulus Gellius, Ovid, Nepos, Sallust, and Horace. These annotated selections make Roma Aeterna useful both as the next step after Familia Romana and as a survey of Latin literature in its own right. Roma Aeterna incorporates the following features: Latin immersion with vowel lengths marked Approximately 3,000 new vocabulary words Short discussions of grammar and exercises for each chapter Selected readings cover the material in a Roman history course Index of Roman rulers and of historical events arranged chronologically The volume Indices contains chronological lists of Roman consuls and their ttriumphs, Fasti consulares and triumphales, a name index, Index nominum, with short explanations in Latin, and an Index vocabulorum, covering all the words used in Parts I and II.

Each chapter introduces one of Ovid's much-loved stories, encouraging children to begin reading Latin immediately while exploring the literary and mythic.

Death in Ancient Rome

For the Romans, the manner of a person’s death was the most telling indication of their true character. Death revealed the true patriot, the genuine philosopher, even, perhaps, the great artist--and certainly the faithful Christian. Catharine Edwards draws on the many and richly varied accounts of death in the writings of Roman historians, poets, and philosophers, including Cicero, Lucretius, Virgil, Seneca, Petronius, Tacitus, Tertullian, and Augustine, to investigate the complex significance of dying in the Roman world. Death in the Roman world was largely understood and often literally viewed as a spectacle. Those deaths that figured in recorded history were almost invariably violent--murders, executions, suicides--and yet the most admired figures met their ends with exemplary calm, their last words set down for posterity. From noble deaths in civil war, mortal combat between gladiators, political execution and suicide, to the deathly dinner of Domitian, the harrowing deaths of women such as the mythical Lucretia and Nero’s mother Agrippina, as well as instances of Christian martyrdom, Edwards engagingly explores the culture of death in Roman literature and history.
