Trivium Incarnatum: The Work of a Grammarian

The classical teacher should strive to become a grammarian, logician, and rhetorician as they are the trivium incarnatum. A teacher takes their first steps toward the trivium incarnatum through the study of Latin or Greek. As they become a grammarian, their soul is prepared to be struck by truths outside of themselves as they learn to submit to text and that language
is a tradition. Once submitted to text, the teacher creates an environment where text reads the student. The teacher will simultaneously develop a deeper understanding of dialectic and rhetoric while studying Latin grammar. Therefore, Latin education for teachers of all subjects is a powerful step towards the trivium incarnatum.
