Overview

The Latin Language and Culture Collection bundles three works that represent some of the earliest ventures into linguistics, a freeze-frame of Latin in the making, and the intersection of Roman culture and the Latin language. Together, these works reconstruct a piece of the past and provide an opportunity to study socio-linguistics in ancient Rome. The surviving books of Varro’s On the Latin Language contemporaneously explore the lexical development of the Latin language in the second and first centuries BC, examining how Latin words originated and evolved. Remains of Old Latin compiles the work of ancient Roman poets, as well as legal and public documents of ancient Rome, giving us a picture of the beginnings of the written language that Virgil would deftly wield. Finally, Attic Nights, by the author and grammarian Aulus Gellius, represents a lifetime of ponderings on language, science, philosophy, and history—an invaluable look into the thought and values of Ancient Roman intellectuals.

This collection contains the complete texts in their Loeb Classical Library editions. Each text is included in its original Latin, with an English translation for side-by-side comparison. These fully indexed texts enable comparison and cross-reference with other Roman history and literature collections. Use Logos’ language tools to go deeper into the Latin language with linked translations, definitions, and pronunciation tools. You can also use the dictionary lookup tool to examine difficult English words. Quick and easy access to maps and charts, as well as definitions and lexical information, allows you to see the historical context of these works like never before. There’s never been a better way for students of history, language, or culture to study ancient Latin.
