The Benefits of Studying Secondary Latin & The Roman World

The Romans (and the Greeks before them) have fascinated people of all ages for centuries. How did their ideas manage to influence so many subsequent cultures? Why has their literature had such an impact on almost every western culture that has appeared since (and as far east as Afghanistan)? Why has their brand of politics been so influential? Studying the Latin and the Roman World course from Wolsey Hall will allow you to find out the answers to these questions and more! You will learn about the gods who were worshipped and also about both divine and mortal Roman heroes. Alongside the stories and history, you will be learning Latin, a language which is very influential in western history and literature and which you will also recognise in many other European languages.
